— STEVE TOMPSETT —
Bartender of the Month
Meet “Scuba Steve” Tompsett. Steve tends the bar at Sunpie’s Bistro in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, and he is our Bartender of the Month for April.
Born in Omaha, Nebraska, Steve moved to Steamboat Springs 11 years ago. Introduced to Gosling’s Rums whilst working at Sunpie’s, he says: “It’s a bartender’s dream come true to work with Gosling’s Rums. Gosling’s Black Seal Rum and Gosling’s Gold Rum are both so versatile that I have way too much fun creating cocktails. The Dark ‘n Stormy® and Ginger Gale cocktails are very popular, but my personal favourite is the Chocolate Donut, made with Gosling’s Black Seal Rum and Red Bull and served in a hurricane shooter glass”.
Sunpie’s is located on the ban of the Yampa River. Featuring “New Orleans sandwich shop cuisine” and a wide selection of drinks at affordable prices, Sunpie’s is one the best bars in the world. In the summer, their 5,000 sq. ft. backyard hosts lawn parties ‘til late in the evening. In the winter, the 30 seat bar with fireplace and disco ball makes everyone happy!
The humble appearance of Sunpie’s belies the high-quality sandwiches that have developed a cult following. By our reckoning, Sunpie’s produces some of the best sandwiches you will ever savour. Nothing can outdo their hot roast beef sandwich. You can also choose from Sunpie’s divine fried shrimp or fried oyster sandwich.
Steve is not yet married… 1, 2, 3, aaawwwhhhh. Come on ladies, what are you waiting for? Steve is 33 years of age, with a lovely face and a very cheeky smile, his own car (well, his Grandma’s Subaru Forester is close enough), his own cosy rustic log cabin within walking distance of the Steamboat ski area (but be prepared as there is no running water), a passion for watercolour painting, and some truly amazing ambitions!
Be sure to introduce yourself to Steve and all at Sunpie’s where the service is always enthusiastic and friendly. Look out for special events in celebration of the Fourth of July, Cowpie Classic Rugby Tournament, Octoberfest, Winter Carnival and of course, Mardi Gras!
