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!

Phrase: "Where do you want to stick it?"
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!"
Oliver is a super sweet guy and an amazing, hard worker that we called Oscar for the first month since we couldn’t remember Oliver. Now occasionally known as O-O (ya know, for Oliver/Oscar), we have gotten much better about remembering his actual name. Oliver bright guy and a master stocker. If you change your mind about what you want, and try to put a bottle back while he is working, you might find it has already been stocked! Oliver loves whiskey and is a trivia aficionado. He is also passionate about music and organizing all things, complete with diagrams.
Cocktail: Old Fashoioned
Bottle: Woodford Reserve
Phrase: "Pitter Patter, Let's get at 'er' "
Protector of Plants and Baker of Good Tastes
Emily is our mini-coworker. But don’t let this petite beauty fool you, get in her way and she will cut you! Just kidding, but pretty sure she could deadlift any one of us. Although she might appear quiet among this group of loud-mouths, she can certainly hold her own with her quick wit. She is also the caretaker of all plants and the best baker of tasty treats.
Cocktail: Greatful Dead
Phrase: "Eh, not so bad"
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.
