Our bartender of the week Paul Parkerson is a delightful human being to say the least. That’s probably why he has become such a familiar and welcoming face in Aspen’s bartending scene. The newest place you can find Paul slinging drinks happens to also be one of the newest spots in town, Silver City Mountain Saloon. We find it pretty fitting to Silver City’s honky tonk vibe that this man from Mississippi will be helping people find there happy place by serving up liquid comfort. And like Paul ,who can make friends with just about anyone this new bar will surely be a friend to just about any one who his looking for a good time. For a run down on what you can expect from this establishment click on over to our Silver City Spotlight and see what you have in store when you head down to this new yet familiar spot. If southern hospitality is something you haven’t been able to experience in your life time, come hang out with Paul and you will no doubt see that it’s alive and well. We had to sit down with this son of a gun, a man with an ever sunny disposition and pick his brain for some hilarious facts, concerning himself.
