DETROIT, MICHIGAN — The winter holiday season is a marathon to those in the service industry. We caught up with local bartender Patricia Meadows during her shift yesterday afternoon to discuss this.
“I’m the shell of the person I was in October. I can’t remember the last time had an off day where I didn’t want to lay in bed all day and binge drink until last call. Once it slows down, I’m going to take some time for myself,” she tells us while stepping away to greet a couple at the bar.
“Hi Veronica and Ali! How was your holiday?? Did you travel very far?” she asks before realizing she served them on New Year’s Eve.
