Eclipse Bartender James Lake Mixes...A Cuddle!

Cuddle up with a cuddle.
James Lake of Eclipse is no creep. The bartender started working at the Delmar Loop hotspot as security last spring.

Working one's way through the ranks is standard at Joe Edwards' establishments, and it was only a few weeks before Lake moved into a position behind the bar. But not before learning some lingo on the floor.

"These guys walked past me and one of them says, 'Let's go creep on some chicks.' I thought, truer words have never been said."

So when Lake asks if you want a cuddle, take a moment to hear him out because he's probably talking about his gin cocktail.
