What We Ask of You

We are so glad that you have decided to be a Guest Bartender!

VIRTUAL EVENTS:  If your event is a virtual event simply follow the prompts that you receive from your event organizer and the guest bartender program.  Each week you will receive prompts to do the following:

  1. Click 'Like' and click 'Going' on our Facebook Event page
  2. Invite 125 of your friends to attend the event on Facebook
  3. Forward a pre-written communication to 20 or so of your contacts
  4. Copy and paste the body of that communication as your social media status update
  5. Share the event on Facebook

That's all that you are asked to do!

ON PREMISE EVENTS:  If your event is an on premise event at a restaurant, then:

Just like the recruitment communication said, you don't have to know how to bartend. 

All that we are are asking you do is to pull a short 20 minute shift behind the bar with the help of the regular restaurant bartenders pouring wine and draught beers- you don't have to make any drinks, you don't have to take any food orders, and you don't have to handle any money or credit cards.  All that we ask you to do is to come out and have fun!

In order to help raise the most amount of money and awareness as possible, there are a few very simple things that you are asked to do as a guest bartender:

  1. Click 'Like' and click 'Going' on our Facebook Event page
  2. Invite 100 of your friends to attend the event on Facebook
  3. Forward a pre-written communication to 20 or so of your contacts
  4. Copy and paste the body of that communication as your social media status update
  5. Share the event on Facebook
  6. Make a small comment on the Event Facebook Page

That's it, that's all that we are asking you to do!

EVENT NIGHT:

  • Ladies- Do not wear high heels behind the bar- there are safety mats on the floor and your heels could get caught in them.
  • We will show you how to pour wine, how to pour a draught beer, and how we open a bottle of beer.  Please do not grab a tap handle until a bartender has shown you the proper technique.
  • We ask that you get a credit card from the customer for all food and all drink orders so that your host venue bartender can open a tab on the point of sale system so that the order and all future drinks, refills, etc. are just added to the tab. 
  • No food or drink may served to a customer without first being rung into the point of sale system by a BBC bartender.
  • Please do not try to use the point of sale computer system behind the bar- it would take longer than your shift to show you how to ring an order on it!
  • When your shift is over we ask that you immediately leave the bar since there is a very tight schedule to maintain with so many guest bartenders.  You will be escorted from the bar and you will ‘tag’ the next guest bartender.  We ask that guest bartenders do not go back behind the bar until they have been met on the customer side of the bar by the bartender from the previous shift that they are replacing.  It is important that there are only two guest bartenders at a time behind the bar.
  • The most important thing is to remember that we are not asking you to do anything too special- just bring as many friends as possible and have a great time for a great cause!
