Myrtle Beach bartender doesn’t want to be famous - so we’ll make him infamous

September 24, 2013 

SIGNATURE DRINK | Money Maker (vodka, Midori, sour apple, peach schnapps, Sprite)

BARTENDER | Eddie Prince, 26

WHERE | Daisy Dukes Country Saloon

QUESTION | What's it like working with a bunch of girls wearing Daisy Dukes?

ANSWER | I love working with girls wearing Daisy Dukes. There's nothing better than low-cut shirts and short-shorts.

So do you have to wear Daisy Dukes, too?

No. They make me wear a cowboy hat. But they said I don't have to wear sleeves.

But you have to wear a shirt?


The Money Maker drink might make more money if you were bartending without a shirt.

I take my shirt off throughout the night. Once I had a 65-year-old ask to take a shot off me.

Did you do it?

Of course.

Does anyone who asks for a body shot get one?

Anyone who has asked for one has gotten one, yes. I've laid across this bar more than once.

What's the craziest thing you've seen so far at a Myrtle Beach bar?

I don't know. It all seems normal after you've seen it for awhile.

You say you moved here from California - who are wilder, the people on the West Coast or the folks along the Grand Strand?

It's more fast-paced on the West Coast, but as far as wild, I'd have to say this side of the country.

What's been one of the most exciting things you've ever done?

Deployment to Afghanistan (Marine Corps).

Who is your favorite country music singer?

Toby Keith. He actually came to Afghanistan and did a free concert for us.

Do you sing Toby Keith for karaoke?

Yeah. I sing anything to be honest, even if I can't sing it.

What don't you like to do?

Laundry. Dishes. And I tell you what sucks - taking the trash out at the end of the night. But it has to be done. I do like to cook, though.

What's your signature seal-the-deal dish?

Baked lemon pepper fish.

Does it work?

For the most part.

Eddie Prince - that sounds like a famous person's name - have you ever thought about going into the movies?

Absolutely not. I don't want to be famous.
