BARTENDER | Maria Spirito, 34
WHERE | Barnacle Bills Rum & Raw Bar
QUESTION | What are your resolutions for 2013?
ANSWER | Drink less.
I don't think my liver can take much more.
So the world didn't end on 12-21-12...what did you put off/procrastinate about that you need to do now?
Actually, I wasn't into the whole end of the world thing, but I put everything off.
Do you have Triskaidekaphobia (the fear of the number 13)?
No. That's actually my favorite number.
So then is 2013 going to be a really lucky year for you?
Yes - my time to shine.
What do you anticipate being your most shiny moment?
All of them.
Any new tattoos in 2013?
Yes - get my sleeve finished.
If there was one moment you could erase in 2012, what would it be?
Easter weekend… it was a drunken debauchery crazy weekend.
When do you predict the next end of the world will happen?
Not in my lifetime.
If it were to end in one week, how would you spend your final days?
With my kids.
Would you rather know when the world is ending or have it happen by surprise?
By surprise. I don't want to see it coming.
Imagine you're on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno”…what anecdote would you want to talk about?
I'm pretty quiet for a bartender.
Let's start you off… "This one time I..."
Flipped a car.
More details? No… none that I need to give.
