    Cons

    When you first begin the drinks will be the hardest to master. I'll give you 2 weeks max and then you'll be making drinks like a champion !

    Advice to Management

    Our managers, upper and lower class are all extremely well trained with amazing personalities. If we ever need help in production or retail they are always there to lend a hand and also give some advise as to what we should do if the situation was ever to occur again ツ
