Shannon Hebert (one of the subjects of our cover story this week) has been making drinks for a living for the past 13 years. Hebert used to pour coffee at Safehouse and now she makes cocktails infused with espresso. You can find the photographer/fashion designer holding down the day shift at The Flycatcher. Ask for her "Crazy Tasty Bacon Bloody Mary" and go to for the recipe.
