Rep. Ocasio-Cortez Is Back To Serving Drinks In NYC, But She Still Has Her Job In DC

@kokylo/ \ @ocasio2018 \ Instagram

One of the most poignant moments in the Netflix documentary “Knock Down The House,” is when the director showed Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tending bar. While many know her success story, a New York City girl who worked as a bartender and ran for Congress, we had never seen her doing the work until that documentary came out.

Seeing her behind the bar, getting ice from the basement, working as many people do, was a critical moment.

Here’s a real person who was serving people behind the bar, and is now serving the entire country from Capitol Hill. Now she’s back at it again…sort of.

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez is going back to do the job she used to, but this time it’s for a good cause.

The New York Daily News is reporting that Rep. Ocasio-Cortez will be tending bar to bring attention to the federal Raise the Wage Act. She will be working at a restaurant bar in the Bronx, though organizers have not disclosed the location.

Democrats introduced the Raise the Wage Act in January, mainly by Sen. Bernie Sanders. According to Sen. Sanders’ website, “The bill would gradually raise the minimum wage to $15 by 2024, index future minimum wage increases to median wage growth and ensure all workers are paid at least the full federal minimum wage by phasing out the subminimum wages for tipped workers, youth workers, and workers with disabilities.”

Aside from serving drinks, Rep. Ocasio-Cortez will also be waiting on tables.

“We’re very grateful for our partnership with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who fully understands the struggles of these workers,” Saru Jayaraman, co-founder, and president of Restaurant Opportunities who is organizing this event told the publication. “As a former tipped worker, Rep. Ocasio-Cortez can shed light on the importance of One Fair Wage to lift up these workers and their families.”

Kacey Musgraves ‘Princess Of Selena Dedications’ Takes A Shot Of Tequila In A Glass Slipper Onstage Making Fans Lose It

One of our favorite Selena tributes has to be the one that came from country singer Kacey Musgraves. Ever since then we’ve been following her antics on Instagram and Twitter. We also know she’s currently on a massive world tour. From Coachella to concerts across the pond, the girl is getting around and we’re so here for it.

We especially love the bizarre and wildly funny things are taking place on stage. This week was no different.

While playing some concerts in Australia, Kacey Musgraves was pressured to do a “shoey” on stage. First, let me explain what it is.

In Australia (with origin dates unknown), it’s a tradition to drink alcohol out of your shoe. That’s why they called it a “shoey” get it? Earlier this week, audiences kept yelling “shoey” while Musgraves was on stage and she flat out told them no. Who can blame her? It’s kind of gross.

She initially said, “I’m not f–king drinking out of your shoe!”

Some people praised her for not giving into peer pressure. “I’m so proud of Kacey for not doing the shoey,” one local fan said. “She stuck it out. We stan an anti shoey queen,” another said.

She still got some negative press for not taking part in this Australian tradition, and last night she finally had a change of heart. She said she wasn’t in the mood.

During her concert in Melbourne, Musgraves celebrated her last show in Australia by finally doing a shoey, but she did it her way — with a glass slipper, just like the one Cinderella wore.

The shoey tradition is for a performer to drink out of their own shoe, but because that’s nasty, Musgraves — like the star she is — chose a much more stylish way of taking the shot.

She downed tequila of course. What else would you expect from this lady? Check it out below.

We can’t wait to see her perform back in the states!
