Best Bartender

Darren Anthony, Mexicali Rosa’s, 5680 Spring Garden, 422-7672

Efficient… congenial… flirty. These are all words used by Mexicali Rosa staff to describe resident barkeep Darren Anthony—your pick for the SuperCity’s best bartender. Perhaps owner Dave Turk best summed up Darren’s appeal: “He’s a blue-collar bartender. You know, straight ahead and not real flashy,” Turk surmises. “He’s a Newfie. That pretty much sums it up. It’s the Newfanese style of bartending.”

Runner-up: Dave Miller, The Bitter End, 1572 Argyle, 425-3039
