Fred Johnson – Bartender Extraordinaire.
This is my tribute to my good friend, Fred Johnson.
In my opinion, Fred is a modern mix of ‘Grand Wizard of Service, Food & Drink’ and ‘Historian-Philosopher-Teacher’. He must be a direct descendant of Zeus Xenios, Epicurus, or both.
He’s an amazing host, mixologist, husband, father, philosopher, chess enthusiast, conversationalist and, a great friend.
If you are intrigued enough to meet this amazing fellow, you can find him, most days, running, guiding, and tending The Starling Bar, in Sonoma CA.
To Fred!” <chink!>
