FB - If appears that California’s unpopular new law requiring culinary workers to wear gloves when handling food will also apply to those behind the bar. Bartenders must now wear gloves or utensils like tweezers when touching ingredients such as herbs, olives, lemon wedges and ice cubes. Unfortunately, as in the case with chefs in the kitchen, many bartenders may find this new law both tedious and limiting. “I’m always touching any kind of herbs from my garden, touching persimmons to feel for their plumpness or softness,” bartender Matthew Biancaniello told the LA Times. ”But the gloves thing, even when I go to buffets and see it, I flinch a little and think ‘hospital.’” To ease the blow, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health announced that the law will see a “soft roll-out” these next six months to a year. During this period, food handlers will not be penalized by point deductions when not using gloves but will receive a warning instead.
Yo fuck that. I would be pissed as shit if I’m at a bar in California and my bartender couldn’t garnish my 17 dollar cocktail because he had to put on gloves first. It’s really not that big of a deal. You put a fucking lime in my ginger ale vodka, I don’t check my bank account for the next week out of pure fear, and we call it a day. I don’t need latex involved in any aspect of my life, particularly when it involves drinking or anything after.
And while on the subject, I am all about when the people at the pizza place just grab the slice with their hands and toss it into the oven. It adds that extra home-made taste. Adds to the aura. If I wanted fancy food, I’d go to a fancy place. If I end up with a slice of pepperoni and scab pizza, then that’s the bed I made, and the pizza I’ll eat.
first condoms in porn. Now this.
DAVONE BESS! The spiral continues! Guy cannot be stopped
A slutty dressed bartender wearing gloves? Yep, I can make that work when I go home from the bar alone
Just drink beer and you don’t have to worry about people throwing weird shit in your drinks
judging from the total degenerates that live in CA this might save a few (thousand) lives
i tell women i’m allergic to latex so i dont have to wear a condom
Know what I was just thinking about Nate? How does a woman carry a child for nine months, go through all that pain at childbirth, hold it in her arms… and end up calling it Sharkeisha? Random thoughts.
theworstdrug.com, you’re welcome
I put gloves in my feet and nastyrbate sure
You wanna talk about painful, Mass. isn’t even allowed to have happy hour.
I hope someday we have a blogger who is from LA who could weigh in personally on stories like this.
Nate, do you need a high chair at the bar?
Hingerale and vodca is for bitches
I actually think this is a good idea. A couple nights ago I ordered a drink and the bartender itched his fucking nuts then made my drink. Of course I still drank it.
Happy friday boys, I give you alex daddarios bombs from the next episode of true detective. enjoy
I just go with the logic that the watered down alcohol that the bar gives you will kill all the germs…mostly just to make me feel better
Name another Barstool blog that’s supposed to be covering the West Coast… you can’t.
I’m so hung over I keep opening barstool but just scrolling through pages and not reading. I don’t know why but I just had to tell someone
ginger ale/vodka? what the fuck?
California fucking sucks in so many ways, think they’re so much smarter than everywhere else
@Harry Johnson – I don’t get it? Do the bars shut down from 3-7pm or something? Is it against the law to serve specials during those hours or something? Why? WTF? I am thoroughly confused…
“I don’t check my bank account for a week out of pure fear”.
Nailed it. It’s like when you may or may not have jizzed in a girl and you don’t ask her about birth control until after it’s too late for the Plan B pill
I hate the idea of this almost as much as I hated when airlines started referring to passengers as customers in all the pre flight videos…just ruined the entire experience
@workingclass ya they cant change offer drink specials
Ginger ale and vodka? I love the creepyness Nate.
I blame Heath
That’s not a drink dude.
Pussification of America: California
jesus h. fucking christ, California. Just creating solutions to problems no one had. I fucking hate this state and I fucking hate every goddamn politician that runs it.
I live in CA and don’t care about this law, but then, I’m not a bartender.
