This is Dave. Dave has been a bartender for 20 years at the Zebra on the corner of 19th and P. It’s one of the few bars in town that still opens at 6am, just in case you need a shot and a beer before breakfast. Dave is from Tuscon and has been in Sac since 1985. His first gig in town was bartending at the old VFW Post 61 before it became the lame club it is now. I guess change is inevitable. The walls at the Zebra used to be covered in bras, but they donated those to WEAVE (Women Escaping a Violent Environment). I’m not making that up. They even serve food at the Zebra and Dave claims they have the best Philly Cheese Steak in town. So go down and get a little drunk and have one. If Dave gives you the finger when you walk in, don’t worry about it. That’s just his way of saying hello. He is into old soul, R&B, and jazz. Stevie Wonder’s recent live album is his current favorite. Dave is 53.

Favorite Accomplishments: Traveling the world. I’ve been to Australia, Europe, Central and South America. Australia is my favorite. The people are warm and friendly and like Americans.

Regrets: That I didn’t finish school.

What are your passions/obsessions? Making folks laugh. Don’t bring your problems to the Zebra. It’s all about fun here.

Who comes in here at 6am? We still get third-shifters. Cops, almond growers, and hospital staff. New Years Day is our busiest morning of the year. There’s a line out of the door.

What’s the most popular drink here? Jager bombs.

What’s your sip? Makers Mark. (I knew you were a man of substance Dave.)

Sound Off! When I die, they better bury me upside down so the whole world can kiss my ass.

Thanks bitch~! I’ll be back for a Maker’s next time.
