The DNA of today's barkeep has many traits, from those of the mischievous,
conniving entrepreneur “Shanghai” Kelly, who dabbled in drugs, kidnapping, and
murder, to those of the more high-minded and pragmatic marketer Duncan Nicol,
the culinary innovator Trader Vic, the disciplined Harry Johnson, and the
energetic showstoppers, Jerry Thomas and Henry Africa. These six and many
more passed along their characteristics to the current generation of barkeeps.
And it is when an ...

As they both approached the front door of the pub, Francis said to Con, “I don't
think it's wise fer'us both, to enter the pub through the front door, therefore I will go
around the back of the pub and holler for the barkeep. When he comes out, I will
kill him. Ye'then can walk into the pub and see about ordering two beers.” He
continued, “Now there of coarse, won't be any barkeep, as he will be dead, and
so I suggest that ye'ask one of the patrons, if he would mind, pulling two beers fer'

“Son of a bitch!” Adam was grinning from ear to ear as the barkeep reached
across to grab the front of his shirt. When he spotted the ax handle the barkeep
had picked up from wherever it had been stashed, he started to laugh. “Oh, you
think this is funny?” the barkeep asked. “Most definitely.” “How about this?” The
barkeep's free hand snapped forward to knock the ax handle against the side of
Adam's head. It wasn't a powerful blow, but was enough to take the wind from
Adam's sails.

In Old Lady Barkeep's shrunken Reich Herr Dr. Goebbels took the mike And
vowed in his grand style: "If it costs all your lives, my dears, Our reign will last a
thousand years! Or twelve — same price. Sieg: HEIL!" Through the person of Old
Lady Barkeep, a type of history emerges to make its statement, but this history is
not a consciousness, or even a structuring of cause and effect that allows the last
one dead to laugh best; history is what's left of what has been sung in the
barroom, the ...

The barkeep was frowning. “You're not from around here,” he said. “Not originally
,” said Oscar, “no.” The barkeepnodded toward Henry, whose face was blank. “
He's like a what? A nurse, kind of?” “Something like,yes. He studiedwithHegel in
Germany.” The barkeep scratchedat hisjaw. “Well, shoot, mister.” He shifted his
glance, and then shifted hisweight fromone footto theother. Onceagain he wiped
the palms of his hands against his apron. He said, forlornly, “I got customers to

“Consider it a gift.” The young man picked up the coin and again offered it to the
barkeep. His hand was small and clean. It practically shone in the dim light of the
bar. “No good deed goes unrewarded, right?” “No good deed goes unpunished.
That's the saying.” “You don't believe that.” The young man held out the coin,

tucked it into the pouch at his hip. “Bread from yesterday, too. It's probably stale.” “

“Yes. I. found. him. He's. dead.” The barkeep exhaled through his teeth. He set

glass and gestured to the rifle. “Would you be willing to trade this for that gold

thousand dollars.
