Tina Maisner first got her start in the industry because her neighbor owned a few bars in Erie. Needing a job, she tried her hand at serving and later at bartending. Thirty-plus years later, she continues to love what she does! Having worked construction, meatpacking, and retail on the side, she always seems to come back to the tending the bar; “the bar is her life,” Tina has said.
What is her favorite thing about bartending? The people, obviously. She goes on to say that the One Way Inn is a mini Cheers and while they get a lot of out-of-towners from area hotels, regulars return day after day to “where everybody knows your name!” How does Tina keep her regulars and customers happy? She believes that being alert, fast, and accurate can make anyone a good bartender…and make him or her some money too! One Way Inn is located in Erie, where Tina works full time. Stop by and see her some time!
