Congratulations to – Our Bartender of the Month! MO! – Maleesha!

How long have you been at the Dirty Dogg and Why you chose the Dirty Dogg – On and off since 2006 and I came to work here along with a couple other girls I worked with at another bar. It’s unlike any other bar and my co-workers are awesome!

How long have you been a bartender – Since I was 19

Hobbies – I make customized gel candles and am an active advocate for animal rights and strive to make our community a better place.

What’s your most favorite thing about bartending- It’s my social time. I work a lot so when I am bartending I get to socialize with people from all over. We get people from Canada that have heard about DD. That’s pretty awesome.

What’s your least favorite thing about bartending – the smell of tequila lol

A few words of advice for up and coming bartenders – it’s not as easy as it looks. There are a lot of factors besides pouring a drink. Handling drunken people is a tuff job! Watching how other bartenders do it is the key.

What else do you do beside bartend? work wise Lashes, hair and candle making.

How long have you been in Arizona – about 29 years (showing my age)

Favorite Music – Probably old school hip-hop

Favorite drink to drink – coffee…it’s good for the soul

Favorite drink to make – this is going to sound crazy but I love to make Bloody Mary’s. It’s a technique…

Least favorite drink to make- shots. They are so boring…


Life is a journey, and I’m finding myself everyday “I like making my own money, I find that an aphrodisiac.- Sink or swim. You’re either going to make it or you’re not. It’s all up to you.
