Here's Looking At You, Kid

Behind the Bar-A +A
Published: 10/15/2013

A famous line by Humphrey Bogart who played the bar owner character Rick Blaine in the old movie “Casablanca” goes, “Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world ... .” I’m using only part of this line because the whole line doesn’t really work to make a point about your stressing out about assuming more managerial responsibilities behind the bar.

Anyway, you’ve been in the bar biz long enough to know that management may not always see the whole picture, understand the whole scene or even hear the whole line before making changes.
