    There is a bar I go to sometimes to have a few drinks with good friends and chillout. The bartender has always been professional and a lot of fun.he is the best. He puts up with my junk and gives good advice.

    I think every man....if they like to have a drink once in a while, should have a steady bartender....but I digress.

    It's his birthday and I want to give him a gift. What would you give? Money?

    Kissing pro miss your pic.

    If you know enough about him get him a gift that you know he would like.
    Otherwise I think cash is appropriate. thoughtful guy you are.

    What a great idea! Bartneders love cash, but maybe accompany it with some sort of fun token of appreciation?

    Why not print out a photo of me as Carrie (what could be more NYC than that!) and put it in a swarovski crystal picture frame... priceless.

    Well, do you know what he likes. I'm sure you two have gotten to know each other a bit since he's your steady bartender. And once you know what he likes to do, it would narrow down your options on what to get him. I'm also a bartender and it's very nice and surprising to know that some of my regulars remember my birthday and get me a gift icon_biggrin.gif good for you for showing your appreciation. Bartenders are gods, plus they are way cheaper than psychiatrists.

    Hmmm, gifts for a bartender... Try a really nice bottle opener or a t-shirt w/ sexual innuendo, they always seem to help when you are working. HA! Or maybe a book on cool cocktails..?.

    No the best profit margin cocktails are made in NYC. In other words, the weakest cocktails are made there. :-P

    If you want to keep it a "business" relationship, a gift card is great, maybe to a bookstore or something else he'd like. Ask another employee who knows him what he'd like.

    If you're interested in getting to know him outside of the bar, then go for something a little more personal. Or a really nice and thoughtful card to go with the gift card, instead of a silly/raunchy card.
