Even when her soaking-wet customers tip her with waterlogged dollar bills, Sami Lefever manages to stay dry.
Lefever makes a splash from behind the swim-up bar at Harrah’s Resort Southern California’s Dive Day Club, where upwards of 3,000 people converge each Sunday (May through September) for big-name DJs, an insane pool party and the never-ending Lazy River.
“I have to thank Hooters for sending me through the proper training,” she says, “and preparing me for any other venue I venture off to.”
What a hoot - now, she can sling drinks in high-volume settings like Dive without breaking a sweat. When it comes to cool jobs, this bartender’s got it made in the shade.
