; Years bartending? Decades.
; Where else? Noonan’s Bar and Grill.
; Like best about WildFox? Since we are next to the Best Western, I
get to meet interesting people like photographers on assignment and
race car drivers.
; Signature cocktail? Cafe Robert: Baileys, Cointreau and coffee — it’s
short and sweet and will keep you up all night.
; Secret drink? Dahlia’s Delight: Baileys, Kahlua, Frangelico and cream.
; If someone’s had too much, you say… “How about some water?” They
usually get the hint.
; Favorite bar? Benissimo in Corte Madera.
; Favorite drink? Triple M: Midori, margarita, martini. Any Hawaiian
island will do.
; What career would you compare bartending to? When I first started, I
thought I would have to be a jet fighter pilot and rock ’n’ roll star to have a
job better than this —and I still feel that way.
; Go-to joke?;How come cannibals don’t eat clowns? They taste funny.
BOBBY FONTAINE has been bartending at WILDFOX in
Novato for about three years. He started out as a restaurant
manager, but once he acquired a taste for bartending, that
was it; there’s no job he’d rather have. His advice to future
Story Men are taught
that the way to a woman’s
heart is through chocolate.
Through my years of bartending I’ve learned that
it’s not chocolate — it’s salt
content. These days it’s
proven by the popularity
of the dirty martini among
women. So guys, for a fun
night, fix your gal a really
dirty martini, put out a bowl
of salt-and-vinegar potato
chips and stand back and let
the party begin.
