Geno has owned Cocktail since the very beginning, almost 14 years now! When he isn't busy running the bar, he loves to watch old movies. Some of his favorites are " All About Eve" "Dark Victory" and "Roman Holiday". His guiltiest pleasure would have to be shoes.. If you want to get him excited about something , ask him about his sneakers... And if you gave Geno a superpower, he would wish to be able to fly!

As a Sagittarius he knows if he could only eat and drink one thing for the rest of his life, it would be peanut butter and Jack Daniel's. Having spent 2 years living abroad in his early 20's Geno has found Paris to be the sexist city in the world.

He loves owning Cocktail - "wouldn't trade it for anything" he says repeatedly. " I only wish people would understand how much work it is, not nearly as glamorous as it looks, and come on people a debit card is not the same as cash!!!!"



dusTy loves to play cribbage at the Point and says he enjoys breakfast sex (eating pancakes nakid) and smoking ciggs.

Every night before he goes to bed he gets nakid (once more!) and thanks God he's a 'Country Boy'!

Val, one of the original cocktail staff members is a scorpio with a very warped sense of humor!

He loves working at cocktail, his favorite part is watching Dorothy freeze outside the window in the winter months, and the strangest thing he has heard while working is a republican defending Bush.

He craves peanut butter and sardine sandwiches and when no one is listening he will sing out loud the "Sounds of Silence" by Simon and Garfunkel.

Val spends his days riding bareback on porcupines and lying on questionnaires to amuse himself.

Happiest Wishes & Best Retirement! You will always be missed!
