Messenger Aspen’s Bartender of the Week: Erin

In Blog, Local Spotlights by Steph Janigo1 Comment

Once again, Messenger Aspen goes undercover and risks their lives (eh ehmm..sobriety) to bring you some exclusive info on some of the most dangerous creatures in Aspen: bartenders. Week two of the ‘get to know your bartenders’ series is here, helping to inform innocent vulnerable drinkers so they know exactly what they are getting into- the risks, the laughs, and perhaps intoxication. These bottle openers, cocktail shakers, and shot chillers were kind enough (or possibly drunk enough) to open up and share with us of there deepest, darkest, secretes. hah just kidding. Here’s some random facts and stories on their experience serving the town and possibly/probably YOU. As we know information is power, the more you know the better you can protect yourself. Messenger Aspen-serving the party people of Aspen.

This week we haunted down the elusive Erin in her natural fiesta habitat: Mi Chola. After some serious investigating it has been confirmed this talented tender can make up one mean margarita and shake up some EXCELLENT chilled tequila shots. Erin might be shy at first but don’t let her coy smile and coquettishness keep you from getting to know this bold well-travelled personality. Born in the Netherlands amongst the freaky-deaky Dutch, raised in Boulder’s hippy community, and now lucky for us she resides in a little place we call Assspen.
