Here are a few reviews:

I would highly recommend Brendan to other event planners. He took the extra time to really understand our event needs and provided recommendations to best fit them. He was very thorough and went above and beyond, allowing me to take care of other aspects of the event. I would work with him again in a heartbeat!

Brendan was amazing! Not only did he create signature drinks for my 40th birthday he was a joy to have at the event! He thought of everything that was needed and even went so far to get 8 oz. bottles of water-the perfect amount to drink after each drink. We were highly impressed and cannot wait to plan our next event with him.

I had Brendan bartend at a surprise birthday for my husband. He came to site beforehand, we created signature drinks that he typed up descriptions for and took charge of the party, helping caterers etc. Fun to be with and engages people of all ages and treats them like friends. He got some upcoming jobs with my friends and I couldn't be happier!

We had hired Brendan to assist with our Fundraiser, and we couldn't have been happier! He was prompt, personable, and very professional. The Town one day permit we obtained required a bartender that was "Tips" certified, which he is. Our event was a huge success and I will contact him for assitance with future events!

Brendan was the best! He was the first to respond to my request and was able to recruit another bartender to work my event with him. He met with me the day before the event to check out the space and offered helpful tips about set-up, what and how much to buy. His price was very reasonable. He and his co-worker arrived right on time and set up everything. He is a very friendly guy with a great sense of humor. If I ever have another event, I know who to call. Thanks so much!

I've known Brendan for many years and can personally attest to his professionalism, enthusiasm and reliability. He is a person who always makes all guests feel like friends. His successful sales career is a testament to his ability to positively engage all types of people; to bring creative ideas to the table and bring them to life. He will listen to your ideas for a perfect event, will provide insight and find a way to make it happen.

Of particular importance to many clients is a concern for the safety of their guests. When hosting an event a host wants their guests to enjoy themselves, have a terrific time and get home safely. Brendan is committed to safety first and, if someone is at a point where he/she should no longer be served, he shuts them off with care and sensitivity. He will discreetly bring the situation to the attention of the host to ensure the guest arrives home safely.

I highly recommend Brendan to plan, manage and/or bartend any event you want to be a success!

I have hired Brendan on a couple of occasions to help me with the bartending for both work and personal events that I have had. Brendan has assisted me in a brunch for my staff around the holidays. He provided more than just mixing the drinks but also can help keep the party interesting. He also helped me put together a Kentucky Derby Party with Mint Juleps and all! Definitely recommend Brendan for all of your party needs.
