Alexa Fitzpatrick describes herself as a ski bum turned bartender. But her one-woman show is much more than just another girl's life.
"Serving Bait to Rich People" is Fitzpatrick's wry, candid look at her life from New Jersey to Colorado. The "bait" refers to sushi she served at the critically acclaimed Matsuhisa restaurant in Aspen, Colo., an eatery created by celebrity chef Nobuyuki "Nobu" Matsuhisa.
Fitzpatrick has the clever ability to make the audience look within themselves while she serves up observations skillfully punctuates each tale with a fab twist:
On towns where men outnumber women two to one: "While the odds are good, the goods can be odd."
On sushi: "You can call it sushi all you want, but in most parts of the world that $20 bite at the end of your chopsticks would go right back on a hook to catch something worth grilling."
Fitzpatrick is the bartender you want to find at the end of the day. But with her keen sensibilities and wit she's primed for more curtain calls rather than last calls.
