About Us

Tony and Sam are two industry professionals living and working in beautiful Vancouver BC, Canada.
Tony grew up in Vancouver, and currently works as a Bartender at a fine dining restaurant in downtown Vancouver. His educational background is in Business, having earned a degree in Finance from the University of Ottawa in 2014. After briefly suffering through the Monday-Friday, 9-5 shtick, Tony decided to retire his Finance cap (much to his parent’s dismay).
Sam was born in Toronto, raised in suburban Southern Ontario, and has lived in Vancouver since July 2015. She has two bachelor degrees in Anthropology and Psychology from the University of Ottawa (2011 and 2015, respectively) which are currently collecting dust in her closet. Sam works as a Server and part-time Office Manager at a fine dining restaurant in downtown Vancouver.
The pair met in Ottawa in 2009 where they worked as servers at a buffet-style restaurant in the busy tourist area known as the Byward Market and began dating in 2011. The easy decision to move to (back to for Tony) Vancouver was made as soon as they had both finished school. Once settled in Vancouver Tony and Sam both decided that they would continue to work in the service industry in a more professional and dedicated manner. They have both recently completed their Wine and Spirits Education Trust (WSET) Level 3 and intend on continuing to pursue wine, spirits, and beer education. Mama always said education was important!
On their days off Tony and Sam regularly dine and drink around the city. Whenever possible, the two take frequent vacations to many of the wondrous places BC has to offer such as Whistler, Tofino, Mayne Island, Kelowna…
Living the dream one shift at a time!
