Yesterday Sean Kenyon shared 25 things you never knew about bartender Mikie Mazzotta, who works at the Squire. Kenyon's been going to this bar for thirteen years -- as long as he's lived in Denver. "It reminds me of the dives that I haunted in Jersey City, so it definitely feels like home to me," he writes. "But earlier this year, the Squire got a facelift, and the crowd has changed a bit (for the better). The old girl is a lot prettier, too, and bartender Mikie Mazzotta takes care of his guests with effortless ease." But the conversation this post inspired was anything but easy.
