After many years of drinking, Angela thought the natural next step was to open a liquor store, which is super easy to do in the State of Oregon! She is very persnickety. She also knows 90% of Bend and may or may not be losing her mind. Angela loves all things outdoors, especially hiking and backpacking. Check out the photos in the store that have all come from her adventures!

JUSTIN "WILD TURKEY" BAIRD
Assistant to the Assistant Manager
Justin is a mysterious guy who once owned cows. He is a student of all things liquor and is nearly an expert in everything but cognac, so don't ask him about that. He is a super solid guy, with a heart of gold, but can be as stubborn as one of those bulls he once owned. He is also passionate about pointing out Angela's typos. Justin likes booze and harassing Stephanie.
Cocktail: Piña Colada
Bottle: George T. Stagg (we hope)
Phrase: "It'll be alright."
Master of the Scanner Gun
Stephanie is as lovely as she is efficient. She is fluent in all things geek, and attracts attention from nerds and construction workers alike. She is a local celebrity as the Deschutes River Mermaid. She likes to claim she doesn't drink, and may not know the difference between rum and whiskey. Just kidding, she does now! Stephanie also loves cosplay, D&D, and harassing Justin.
Cocktail: Mexican Mule
Phrase: "You suck!"
"KARAOKE" JOE JEPSEN
Steward of the Straightening Stick
Joe is our sports aficionado and one organized guy! You know the dozens of minis we have stocked? That's all Joe! He is super duper at making perfect rows and has a secret desire to be called Jojo. He loves the Patriots, singing karaoke, and standing with his hands on his hips.
Cocktail: Strawberry Daiquiri
Bottle: Some discontinued flavor of Baileys that Sisters has a lot of
Phrase: "(Insert team that is NOT the Patriots) are losers!"
Hard worker, master stocker, and beer expert. He also plays and coaches Ultimate Frisbee, and really likes beer.
Phrase: "What kind of beer can I help you find?"
Although we take our jobs seriously (we know our stuff), we never take ourselves seriously. So if you hear laughter and ribbing, it's all in good fun because the liquor business IS fun. AND we have genuine affection for each other. We are a true team!
I don't believe in The Secret, but maybe I should! This is the team I envisioned! But in my manifestations, there was more singing.
