‘Hey Bartender’ Gang Reunited in Westport Image
It was a reunion tonight for Westport director Doug Tirola (r) and the stars of his award-winning documentary “Hey Bartender”—Steve Schneider (l), and Steve Carpentieri, a co-owner of Westport’s Dunville’s, 41 Saugatuck Ave. The film tells the story of how the renaissance of the bartender comes to be in the era of the craft cocktail. Schneider agreed to be a “guest bartender” at Dunville’s to celebrate the restaurant’s recent renovations, or as Carpentieri calls it, Dunville’s 2.0. Since the theatrical release of “Hey Bartender” in 2013, Schneider has become one of the world’s best known bartenders, doing guest stints at bars in Berlin, London, Russia, Australia, and Asia. Tirola was director/producer, Danielle Rosen co-producer, and Susan Bedusa, producer. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) photo
