Bars are a big part of living in Chicago, a fact that is hard to miss for me (I'm a bartender at Schubas and iO). The behavior of bar patrons can fit a lot of descriptions: infuriating, amusing and downright odd.  The strange occupation that is bartending gives me at least one memorable interaction every night. I publish these interactions 140 characters at a time in a series of tweets that I like to refer to as "bartweeting." 

Here are some of the best tweets that I've compiled during my time as a professional drink pourer.

People never cease to be weird at a bar

And sometimes bros just don't know how to tip

Carding people can be infuriating

Alcohol consumption can make manners go out the window

Musicians aren't exactly normal either

The creeps come out at night

But sometimes people can be awesome
