Poison Ivy

Meet Poison Ivy!

Ivy lived isolated, because most people feared and disliked her, for if she touched you, an uncontrollable itch to tell the truth would arise.

However, not everyone Ivy touched felt compelled to be honest, and although her social circle was small they were a fiercely tight knit group.

One busy day at the farmer’s market, Ivy was asked by management to leave and she refused. That day Ivy realized her abilities were a gift, because it kept all the haters away.

Be cool like Ivy and enjoy the good vibes!

  • I started off working for non-profits, then teaching at charter schools in marginalized communities throughout Chicago, Oakland, CA and Portland, Oregon. My passion for learning, teaching and history is undeniable, but I was struggling financially, so I began moonlighting as a bartender just to make ends meet, and unexpectedly fell madly in love with every aspect of the bar business. For my squad and I, it is about so much more than making a great cocktail. It’s about memories, music, history and sharing those moments, ensuring you embrace the present, reflect on the past and securing a bright future.
