My name is Gergana. 26 years old.
How long have you been a bartender in Cat & Mouse and what keeps you here?
For four and a half years. The pleasant atmosphere keeps me, the wonderful people I work with, and last but not least our great clients!
What is Cat & Mouse for you?
I think I can safely summarize it in two words - a second home. I always enjoy being here and I’m always among friends.
What is your favorite beer? And which beer do you recommend most often to customers?
An impossible question to answer. I have so many favorites that I find it difficult to make my own choices. And to clients, after a short conversation, I recommend what I mostly think they’ll like right now, because a person prefers different things when in a different mood and at different times of the day and at the same time everyone has their individual taste, in accordance to which I always try to make my recommendations for beer.
So come talk about beer and I'll do my best to recommend the best for you!
Tell us a funny story from the bar:
One of my favorites is an extremely fun dialogue:
A woman comes to the bar with a question:
“Do you have lemonades?”
“Yes, we have homemade lemonade”
She asks me:
“What's it made of?”
I say accordingly:
“Well, the lemonade is made of lemons.”
And then she exclaims:
And I was speechless! I literally didn't know how to answer the question, “Well, how's the lemonade made of lemons?”
How do you combine work with your interests?
When a person wants something, they usually find a way. Sometimes I wish the week was 8 days of 30 hours to be enough for work, university, sports, going out with friends and traveling around. But I also deal with the available option somehow - it just needs good organization.
