Be careful with this one. Bartending is a tempting path, but it has led many astray. Though you can make as much in one night as most jobs pay in the better part of a week, you could also end up a drunken mess doing coke off of a urinal at five in the morning. Before you commit to the life of the bartender, be honest with yourself. If you have the wherewithal to get up early and pursue your craft, and your industry doesn't require crucial networking time in the evening, give it a try. If you start finding yourself drunk every night and not in that Hemingway/Faulkner write your way out of despair kind of way, make sure you have the resolve to hang up the vest.
