BARTENDER | Michael Jones, 46
WHERE | P.F. Chang's China Bistro
QUESTION | What would you consider the most dangerously delicious libation?
ANSWER | For a guy, I would definitely say an Espresso Martini. It's dangerous because you won't remember what you did or who you did it with.
How well can you eat with chopsticks?
I can eat pretty damn good with chopsticks. I've had many years of practice.
You're trying to catch the eye of a girl you want to flirt with...what do you do to get her attention?
Just introduce myself and let the drink and my tattoos do the talking. And a cocktail napkin rose works every time.
Tell us about your tattoos.
I've had tattoos done in Miami, Key West, Pittsburgh, Puerto Rico, and, of course, Myrtle Beach. They're kind of a storyline of my life.
Which location has the best stories?
I spent 15 years bartending in Key West - hands down the best stories. It's time to write a book.
Tell me one of the craziest things you saw there.
A scooter crashed into our building and the driver flew through the front window and did an airplane landing across a six-top table. Needless to say he was pretty hammered.
Serve anyone famous in Key West?
A lot of celebrities. My favorites were Harrison Ford and Jimmy Buffett.
What do you do besides bartend here?
I instruct at the Grand Strand Bartending School.
If you were a superhero, what would be your Kryptonite?
What would be your secret weapon?
My secret weapon would be a hot female sidekick like Batwoman.
If you were able to pinch your nose and blow your head up like a balloon, how would you use that skill to advance yourself professionally?
I would use that skill to float away to my happy place when customers become grumpy.
