Me in 57 Seconds...

Hi, I'm Dave, TheRealBarman. I am an author, blogger, teacher, father, husband and reluctant cat owner.


A few useless facts you may not know about me:


  • I am naturally an introvert, so if you're talking with me and I suddenly pretend someone is calling me and I run away, you'll know that I just need some "me time".


  • I was a starting shooting guard at Chico State University where I launched a horrendous amount of 3-pointers at the basket, and even made a few.


  • I can be a bit sarcastic (or so it has been explained to me), so I have to constantly alert people not be offended by my razor-sharp wit, which my wife has informed me that if I have to alert people that it might not be as razor-sharp as I believe it to be, but she’s just jealous because she doesn’t have a blog.


  • My dirty little secret is that I love Jason Bourne and often fantasize about being him because of his ability to escape CIA agents by walk-running from place to place, and because of he can beat up and kill other top assassins with a rolled-up magazine (my real fantasy is to take down evil oil companies and bankers, but fantasizing makes me sleepy, so I usually just take a nap).


  • I have been in the bar/restaurant industry for nearly 3 decades.


  • I am founder/CEO of Bar Patrol (founded in 2012) a bar management company that helps bar owners and managers run a better bar.


  • My greatest (work-related) passion is helping people become bartenders, even if they have little or no experience. I currently have the #1 book on Amazon on how to become a bartender, and the #1 online bartending course when it comes to helping bartenders land a bartending job.


If you have any comments, complaints, compliments, rants, raves, bitching and moaning, or any other form of communication you'd like to express, you're welcome to email me at Dave@therealbarman.com and I'll get back to you just as soon as I finish my Manhattan.
