Messenger Aspen went undercover and risked their lives (eh ehmm..sobriety) to bring you some exclusive info on some of the most dangerous creatures in Aspen: bartenders. This is the beginning of a weekly series, helping to inform innocent vulnerable drinkers so they know exactly what they are getting into-the risks, the laughs, and possible intoxication. These nightlife Gurus were kind enough (or drunk enough) to open up and share with us some random facts and stories on their experience serving the town. Not only do these party enablers know how to mix up a killer cocktail, and dish out the banter, but they probably have seen and lived through that night you had too many shots and ended up with questionable actions from the night before. These folks are not only your sweet hook up to a good time, but also your confidant, friend, and possibly enemy. The more you learn, the better you can protect yourself. Messenger Aspen, serving the party people of Aspen.
First up, hailing from Wellington, New Zealand: Meet Scotty G a ferocious manimal also known around town as “Gibbo”. If he’s not getting you wet with his KAK adverntures (rafting company, get your mind out of the gutter), you might find him partially naked or getting water chucked at his face behind the bar- we promise you hanging around this guy there will never be a dull moment! (Note: pretend you are reading this with a Kiwi accent- cultural verbal differences potentially could offend 🙂
