Bottoms Up: Camilo Miguel Ramirez-Martinez from Winking Judge

Tuesday 04th, July 2017 / 14:15

VANCOUVER – The Winking Judge is a favorite hole in the wall for grumpy old guys who have never stopped going there and people stopping in for a pint before rotting their brains across the street at the Scotiabank theatre at the latest comic book movie. Amongst the friendly staff and the impromptu pool tourneys, there is the teddy bear of the house: Camilo. Don’t let the tough exterior fool you, Camilo has a softy gooey core and a heart of gold that everyone at the bar appreciates. We spoke to him about the biz and the joys of hitting up the pawn shop on off hours.
BR: How did you start bartending?
CMRM: I was bouncing when I turned 18 at the Drum in Calgary. They were short staffed and needed a bar back and the rest is history.
BR: How long have you worked at the Winking Judge?
CMRM: I moved from Calgary to Vancouver in March 2014. My brother lived close to the Judge so when I came to visit, the Judge would be my local. As soon as I moved here I knew it was where I wanted to be.
BR: Best thing about your job?
CMRM: My favorite part of working at the Judge is my co-workers. They are pretty much my family.
BR: Favorite drink to make?
CMRM: Obviously beer based on sheer simplicity (laughs). But I also love to make, and drink, Old Fashioneds.
BR: Go-to on a night off?
CMRM: Favorite place to go has to be the pawn shop or Lucky Taco. I love me some tacos.
BR: Tell us about the greatest night you’ve ever had at work:
CMRM: My greatest night I’ve worked is a tough one. I love pool tourney nights at the Judge; I feel like it brings a lot of great local customers around and it’s always a good time.
BR: The worst?
CMRM: The worst night was when I was working in Calgary and one of my favorite actors came in and was a complete dickhead. Ran up a crazy bill and then walked out. FML right?
