Where Have All The Bartenders Gone?

The CU Bartending Agency doesn’t seem to be running as smoothly as its sister operation across the street. Gender (and web-design skill) differences aside, the concept is the same, but now a message on CU Bartending’s homepage alerts “Valued Columbia Bartending Agency Clients” that the agency continues to be “unable to respond to new requests for bartenders at this time.” Officially, the reason is “an internal, Columbia University review of the operations of the Agency designed to update Agency policies and procedures” (read the full message after jump).
John Dema, the managing director of CU Bartending, declined to comment to Bwog about the reason for the hiatus or when the agency might return at full strength, suggesting that we could find “the most relevant information” by speaking to administrators at the Career Center.
Still, aspiring Brian Flanagans among you will no doubt be pleased to hear that the Columbia School of Mixology (run in cooperation with the agency) will continue offering classes; unfortunately, both sessions for this semester are already full, but there’s always next year. In case that BA in Urban Studies isn’t cutting it for you financially.
Dear Valued Columbia Bartending Agency client,
I am writing to inform you on the current status of the Columbia Bartending Agency. Due to an internal, Columbia University review of the operations of the Agency designed to update Agency policies and procedures, Agency management and the Columbia University Student Enterprise team regret to inform you that we continue to be unable to respond to new requests for bartenders at this time.
The School of Mixology will continue to offer classes to new customers. For details of upcoming Mixology classes please visit the school for the most up to date information.
