Episode 14: The challenges women face in the wine industry – With Maura Passanisi

As in many different careers, women face a unique set of challenges on all sides of the wine industry. Whether it's harassment from clients and coworkers or simply the fact that there isn't a sanitary bin in the employee bathroom because the men who designed it didn't think about installing one. This is an incredibly challenging and nuanced issue. More recently, the industry seems to be moving towards a place of equality and understanding, but there is still a long way to go. My guest today is Maura Passanisi, she's a Certified Specialist of Wine and a WSET Advanced sommelier. She has worked in just about every aspect of the industry, from service to production, and she is the co-founder of the Della Donna Women Winemaker Festival, happening this Sunday, July 21st in Oakland, Calif.

Maura has had a ton of experience handling many of the toughest parts of the wine business and had some great advice about navigating those challenges day to day.

Episode 13: How to handle awkward guest interactions – With Simone Mims

Usually our interactions with guests at our bars are fun and positive. After all, our job is to provide people with alcohol in a jovial environment, what could be better? But sometimes things don't go as planned. Guests can be socially awkward, weird or just downright rude and we still have to provide them with good service. That can be challenging at best. My guest today is Simone Mims, and she's spent the last 22 years behind the bar and had no shortage of awkward interactions with guests. Simone has worked at some incredible bars in both New York and San Francisco, including Blackbird, Nico Restaurant and Che Fico, and she had some amazing advice about not taking anything personally and providing even the weirdest and rudest guests with the best service possible. You can follow Simone on Instagram to find out what she's up to, and she is also a bar and beverage consultant, I've definitely tried some of her cocktails and they're amazing.

Episode 13: How to handle awkward guest interactions – With Simone Mims

Episode 12.5: Harassment, new bars, annoying customers, sobriety and godello

It's not a good idea to keep glasses of wine next to your laptop and recording equipment. Hello again! Another month, another recap and another bottle of inexpensive Spanish wine from my corner store. I don't know why I started this tradition, but I'm into it. It's working for me. Anyway, we had a lot of important discussions this month about issues that we face almost daily at our bars. I talked to Celia Camacho about what to do when guests hit on you, Enoch Tonatiuh about the challenges of working at new bars, Mark Goodwin from The Pin Project about our complex relationship with alcohol, and I shared some of my own experiences dealing with annoying customers at my bar. As usual, I wanted to hit some of the main points with this recap episode, so you can have a few new tools to help you at your bar or restaurant.
