Jerry - Bartender

Birthday - May 18th

Shifts - Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday (8pm - 2am), Every other Friday (3pm - 8pm)

Experience - I've been tending bar for 13 years between Montdale and Pittsburgh.

Favorite Drink - I love Whiskey! 

Bio - After a successful run in the mid-90's as one half of the party pop duo Right Said Fred, Jerry began his bartending career in 2001 at Lefty's in Montdale, PA. This chance to open cans of Busch for his dad's friends would prove to be the big break that would send him through a litany of pubs, taverns and restaurants across the state, ultimately signing a multi-year max contract with The V-Spot Bar in February of 2013. Hailed by critics as "The Beyonce Knowles of furry male bartenders", Jerry's love of blue t-shirts, pro basketball and the NEPA drinking public, has led patrons to proclaim him "pretty good smelling" and "not as well-bearded as the Ruddy brothers". He received a commendation in 2014 for his work with patrons who love The V-Spot but dislike heavy metal. Jerry resides in Montdale.

Bobby - Bartender

Birthday - May 16th

Shifts - Monday and Thursday (8pm - 2am)

Experience - About 7 years, still wet behind my ears.

Favorite Drink - I like to drink Miller Lite bottles and Fireball. Lots of them!!! 

Bio - Mr. Robert Ruddy, or Bob as he usually goes by, was birthed one sunny afternoon during the year of the monkey, 1980, in Dunmore,PA and was destined for great things. A small town boy with a big city personality, Bob flourished academically at Dunmore High School graduating top of his class. 
After graduation, Bob had a fulfilling, but short lived experience with the men's high diving circuit. His Olympic dream was thwarted by a horrifying ingrown toenail, ending his time with the sport. But after three grueling hours in an Epsom salt bath, Bob decided it was time to stop sulking and move on with his life. 
With a little bit of determination, he led a very successful career in the male modeling industry. He was on top of the world until tragedy struck, his close personal friend Gianna Versace's death. This sent Bob down a terrible path of binge eating and depression. He looked to a higher power for an answer, which led to him living in a Tibetan monastery for a full year, where he learned to become one with God. 
Once back in the states Bob approached Vince Archer and Frank Lombardo inquiring about an open bar tending position he heard they were looking to fill. One look at Bobs astounding resume, Mr. Archer and Mr. Lombardo both agreed Bob was much too traveled and far too over qualified for the job. However, Bob persuaded them to give him a chance promising he would not disappoint. The rest, as they say, is history. 
During a recent interview when Bob was asked "What's the greatest lesson he has ever learned?" he humbly replied,
"Don't believe everything you read on the Internet!" 
Inspiring....
If you would like to get to know Bob more intimately, he bar tends every Monday and Thursday nights at The V Spot Bar on Providence Rd. In Scranton. We're sure it'll be an adventure for everyone!!
