Another end of an era: doorboy Andrew finally turned 21 yesterday.
He's worked the door at the Sandbar since he turned 18 and moved to Lawrence for college. Now that he's finally of legal drinking age, he can also tend bar.
Andrew, son of Sandbar founder/owner Peach, was born the same year as the bar. They've both grown and changed and matured through the years, while our customers have come and gone. If you've been around the Sandbar at all in the last 20 years, you've probably met Andrew at some point; he basically grew up here.
His first official bartending shift is tonight from 5-9 p.m. He's working with Tegan and she'll show him the ropes. But Andrew's a smart kid, so no doubt he'll be slinging drinks like a pro in no time.
Stop by tonight and say hi. On special: $1.50 almost anything. There's no cover until 8 p.m. After 8, it's $3 to get in.
Oh, and the picture? That's from St. Patrick's Day, 1997. Wasn't he cute?
