Meet the 2019 Emcee...

Alexander Barranco, born and raised in Tampa Florida, in a large Cuban family. His family owned both a deli and a restaurant, beginning his love affair with the hospitality industry.  After working a few years as a Medical Assistant, he discovered he missed being around people; he finally made the jump behind the bar 15 years ago.  Since then, he has worked at various local establishments and currently, consults on bar set-up and beverage menu creations.  He is the past President of the United States Bartenders' Guild Tampa Bay Chapter.  Mr. Barranco enjoys traveling, the Tampa Bay Rays, and  the Florida Sunshine.
