Q&A with Local Companies: Michelle Keifer at Rustic Mule Mobile Bar

Lincoln, 916-768-9286,, @rusticmule@rusticmulemobilebar

Services or products you offer: Mobile bartending service that specializes in weddings, engagement parties, anniversaries, baby showers, birthday parties, graduations, and other milestone celebrations. We have a team of trained professionals who mix up craft cocktails, mocktails, and signature drinks with various packages to pick from, including services for beer, wine, and bubbles.
What you enjoy most about your profession: I enjoy the consultative approach when planning and discussing a client’s special day and developing signature drinks. The greatest part, however, is event day: pouring drinks, “cheersing” with patrons, taking photos, and seeing the ear-to-ear smiles.

First job: Busser at a Mexican restaurant, which later turned into being a server, cocktail waitress, bartender, and manager.

Favorite food: Pizza.

Favorite local restaurant: Zócalo.

Last big purchase: A generator for the trailer, and before that, the brakes!

When not working, you can be found: On the trail with my dog, at the beach, in my car exploring, or at a trendy restaurant.

You love living here, because: I’m within two hours (or less) to the mountains, the beach, the city, the lake, and the airport. I love the centralized location and access to great food, incredible countryside, and local businesses that support one another.

Favorite small business: Old Town Pizza, Citizen Vine, and Bayabelle Boutique.
