Angie manages to make it back to Lawrence every once in awhile for a visit. We caught up with her recently and asked our questions so that you could learn all about her.

How did you get the job? I was enjoying some cocktails one night and assisted a very inebriated, very large woman, who was grabbing bottles from behind the bar, out the door to avoid a police conflict. Matt and Will thanked me with Coronas and Dave’s phone number. We met up the next week and the rest was history. I started on Monday’s and moved to Wednesday’s the next year.
