Today is the one year anniversary of Maxine’s after the switch in ownership/ remodel. I remember walking in to talk to Ben and Hannah before the grand opening, the bar was covered in sawdust, liquor shelves were empty, and they were both working furiously without sleep or proper meals to get things done fast. What a fucking rush!! I’ve learned so much in this past year and made so many new friends. Working at Maxine’s is seriously being part of a family and I can’t wait to see what is in store for the next years. Come in today and celebrate with me!
