Message from Gary:
Such a bittersweet moment, Leaving behind the job I've had for 12 years! I've grown so much in that bar. I leave it in the very capable hands of my Bar staff that I've train over the years, and I will always have the Martini family in my life!
With this end comes a great new beginning, becoming the Mixologist for southern wine and spirits is a dream job for a guy like me, I already have a awesome boss that has so much passion for her craft just like me, ready to take this new role on with her help! Can't wait to share my new experiences with all of my friends and family.
Thanks to everyone along the way, I'l miss my regulars and all the good times. Couldn't have gotten here without out you! Stay tuned, this is going to be a awesome ride!
It was a bittersweet moment as GQ Award Winning Bartender Gary Gruver crafted his last drinks as bartender at Martini Italian Bistro departing to take on his new postion at Southern Wine and Spirits as Director of Mixology for the State of Kentucky. Friends and family joined the fun wishing Gary much success in the future as he leaves behind his 12 year legacy at Martini Italian Bistro.
