Tiger Celebrates 50 Years

Posted By on Fri, May 29, 2009 at 6:40 AM

Tiger, the daytime bartender at the Tap Room at Hotel Congress and an all around nice guy, celebrated 50 years of working at the downtown mainstay with a celebration last night.

That's right, a half century.

For those of us who have spent a notable amount of time on the business end of Tucson bars, Tiger is the gold standard when it comes to the art of bartending.

To say Tiger is adored and respected by his patrons barely scratches the surface, and the hotel is marking the anniversary by taking 50 cents off any draft beers ordered during his shift through the end of the year. You’re the man, Tiger. Hotel Congress is located at 311 E. Congress St.; 622-8848.
