Episode 3 - 31K Richmonders Can’t Be Wrong!: Lindsey Scheer
Chances are, if you frequent the restaurants and bars of Richmond you’ve probably been served by bartender Lindsey Scheer. She started out in the early 90s as a college server, then progressed to slinging shots and beers at various venues around town. Years of honing her hustle and craft has led her to Heritage, where as bar manager she is infusing her unfussy approach and joyful spirit into their drink program.
We talked cocktails, the business of bartending in Richmond, and her famous Facebook list that 31,000 Richmonders use daily to find everything from a dishwasher for the night to a new apartment. She is an advocate for inclusion and education in the Richmond bar community through her work with the local United States Bartenders’ Guild and breaks down just what it is they all do. We also found out what she looks for when she’s on the other side of the bar. Get ready for the Midori renaissance!
