I was recently contacted by Silvia, about a pub in North London that was looking to do some women’s events.
I got the tube up to Archway and went to The Old Crown to meet Silvia and see what the bar was about. A month later and a call out on Facebook for an extra member of staff for their first big women’s night saw me returning to the bar for the first time in 10 years!
I hadn’t forgotten much in that time, and quickly got back into the swing of things.
I got behind the bar and just got on with things; the bar was packed with over 100 women and there were 3 of us working the bar. It was fun, it was fast and time flew by.
So I think I’ll be behind the bar again soon. I love the social interaction. I think I’ll be looking for occasional shifts here and there.
