Mike and Judy also talk to Aaron about his newest endeavor, Littleneck Outpost, located in Greenpoint. The New England style clam shack is an off-shoot of Gowanus' Littleneck, featuring a grocery, sandwiches, and other delicious fare.

This week on Eating Disorder Spyro and guest co-host St. John Frizell of Fort Defiance in Red Hook take on the age old topic of the bartender. The role is one that can be mentally and physically taxing, and is often responsible for making or breaking a night out. The guys bring on two pro New York bartenders, Olufemi Akiwumi-Assani and Kevin Ang, to talk about the job behind the scenes and why they take their craft so seriously. Join the crew as they navigate the science of a great drink, hilarious (puke) stories, and an in-depth description of the worst customers. This program was sponsored by Roberta's.

"With crafting cocktails, there's very few parts that go into it that make a simple cocktail, a classic cocktail very, very good. But with these things, they all have to be regimented, they all have to be treated seriously so you have consistency and results. Jiggers are important." [8:19]

-- Kevin Ang on Eating Disorder

"As bartenders, we're reverse babysitters. We watch them come in as normal people and then we turn them into children as they go home." [29:07]

-- Olufemi Ariwumi-Assani
