BARTENDER | Angela Griffin, 21 again (actually 38)
WHERE | Anything Eatz
QUESTION | What goes at Anything Goz?
ANSWER | Almost anything.
How do you stay so happy all the time?
Living in the place I've always wanted to live and being with the people I want to be with. I wouldn't change a thing about it - I love it.
What's the best part about living here?
The beach and the wonderful people.
What did you do before bartending?
I had a stressful corporate job in Charlotte (N.C.) and I gave it up to come here.
What's the best way to relieve stress (besides the beach)?
Laughter, cuttin' up with people and telling jokes.
What's the best part about working here?
Great people and free food.
What makes the East Coast better than the West Coast?
I don't like big waves.
And vice versa - what makes the West Coast better?
I can't think of anything...that's why I'm here! They do have pretty weather in parts of California.
What would you do if you saw a Palmetto Bug scurrying across your bathroom floor?
Oh, gosh...freak out. I don't like those. We actually had one on our porch and it ended with me standing on a chair on my tip toes.
If you could do anything, what would it be?
This. I'd much rather be a happy person than a rich person. Although being in the middle of the ocean on a yacht with my baby (fiancé) and no phone service would rock.
