This weeks Drink of the Week is a very tasty one, and is brought to you by my girl, and GREAT friend Andrea "Fuzzy" Dixon. You can find Fuzzy at the South Loop Hotel and at various events all over Chicago Land. I am one who has worked with Fuzzy and she has booked myself and the rest of Drinks On Me(Shameless Plug lol) for events at the Hotel and Private events as well.
Here's a little background on this wonderful Bartender....
At an early age the green-eyed, now 5’10 model/actress has always been conspicuous amongst her peers growing up in the Roseland Community, infamously known as the“Wild 100's”. Having graduated from the Chicago Public School system, Fuzzy continued her education at Southern Illinois University at Carbondale. After the untimely passing of her father, to whom she was very close and gives much credit for her trendsetting personality, Fuzzy returned to Chicago in search of establishing herself in the entertainment nightlife industry as a professional bartender.
After quickly gaining recognition for her unique look and energetic personality, Fuzzy has been in the business for 10 fantastic years! Announcing her retirement from working the bar/club scene in 2010, Fuzzy continues to book private engagements and celebrity galas to bartend/entertain on a more personal level.
Currently, Fuzzy is Chicago’s most sought after talent and continues to book shows and auditions to expand her repertoire, with her ultimate goal of crossing over into mainstream television and movies. Having the ability to quickly adapt, Fuzzy’s talent shines bright and will not be easily dimmed. She has captured the attention of audiences and gained the respect of her peers, and will definitely be one of the next breakout stars to grace the big screen in the near future. Look out, here she comes!!!!!!
