I recently passed my certified exam and I am already studying and preparing for taking the advanced exam but I am wondering what the best place to work for me to prepare me for the exam. I am currently the Bar Manager and Bartender at a higher end casual restaurant that has a large BTG list but doesn't seem to have the guests that want to explore and play around too much with what they drink. I am not sure if it would be worth it for me to take a pay cut and work at a higher end place with a stronger and more classic wine program or to try to pivot my list??? Thoughts???
