Meet The Girls Of GLO

Behind the bar at GLO at the Pool, we found (from left) Jaunetta Hill, 24; Christie Carrignan, 31;  and Tania Azevedo, 26. With experience ranging from six monts to to six years, they all agreed bar tending at Mohegan Sun’s outdoor party is an experience unlike any other.
Q: What is it like bar tending here at GLO?
Christie: It’s great to be outside on a summer night!
Jaunetta: Yea, you get the fresh air and the live music. It’s just awesome.
Q: What’s the coolest part about bar tending a nighttime event like this?
Tania: ... The atmosphere, the customers and the DJs... 
Christie: You get a couple of people who jump in the pool, so that’s fun.
Jaunetta: Some of the DJs have a really big following and they bring a really good vibe. I love it when we have those people who come in and bring that warmth to the atmosphere.
Q: What is your favorite cocktail to make and why?
Tania: I’m simple. Captain and ginger ale. That’s it.
Christie: Girls usually ask me to make them something fruity,  and I just go with it. I make something different every time.
Jaunetta: That’s the most fun, when someone let’s you just go crazy with your imagination.
Q: What’s the weirdest thing you’ve been asked?
Christie: Where do I start? I get asked “when are you breaking up with your boyfriend?” “When are you going to marry me?”
Tania and Jaunetta: Yup.
