#NipClub honors The little cat who could: @TinyPearlCat and her staff

@TinyPearlCat arrives at work in style every day.

@TinyPearlCat always professional AND sweet!!!
@TinyPearlCat even delivers the beer herself if need be!!!

When @FlaCatLady & @MaggieTKat & @KingTuttiFruiti dreamed up #NipClub as a way to blow off steam before the weekend, and also serve various animal charities, there was no inkling of how big it would become.

The first week @KingTuttiFruiti & @MaggieTKat barktended and hosted nearly the whole 5 hour pawty, and I DJ'd for like, 4 hours straight. But anipals were interested. And certain anipals always come to mind when we need help. I tend to lean on my friends @MarioDaCat, @GeorgeTheDuck and @BunnyJeanCook too much. They are always there when we need them and are the very heart of twitter.

But we still didn't have enough help to run the bar without wearing out our barktenders. One pretty little cat volunteered to learn to barktend. That kitty was @TinyPearlCat.

I knew TinyPearl from my other project the AnipalAcademyAwards where she was just blowing us away with her IT skills for photoshop, blogging, etc. We hooked her up with #pawpawty head Barktender @GeorgeTheDuck who gave her some training, but pretty soon she was outshining even the most experienced barktenders. Not only did she have a very unique service method, but creativity galore, making personalized drinks for tons of pawtiers, and even devoloping a menu of drinks. She was soon made Bar Manager. #NipClub is especially proud that Pearl was asked to be a #PawPawty Barktender. #NipClub staff is among the most reliable creative on the anipal circuit!!

NipClub was growing, so I started a blog. Very basic...I'm a caveman as far as blogging goes, and FlaCatLady decided we needed a Noms/Drink menu to help customers decide what to order. For a couple weeks we sent suggestions to TinyPearl, then all of a sudden BOOM we had a Noms/Drink menu that's the envy of even more established pawties.

The blog itself grew, and continues to grow. She's added a game room, a store, DJ and Barktender pages. And just recently TinyPearl moved us forward into a new era of catering. We debutted by catering @PandaFur and @PetieTheCat's wedding. Now we can personally cater any pawty, even providing Barktenders and DJ's if needed.

But TinyPearls is known most for running a tight bar where customers come first, and are treated to a fun experience.

We have 3 main barktenders who work each week. TinyPearl runs the busy 4th and 5th hours (and often a couple hours beyond if customers are still there)@MarioDaCat runs hour 2, and @Meow_Girls run hour 3. I am hoping to be able to give Pearl, Mario, and Meow_Girls the night off so they can enjoy their evening of honor, but it's hard to keep them out from behind the bar.
@MarioDaCat and @Meow_Girls Never fail to make patrons happy...and tipsy.

For other hours, and times when we need to double up we have a staff of barktenders including @GeorgeTheDuck, @BunnyJeanCook @RudyCKat @_Bill_The_Cat, @Tildatoo, @PepiSmartDog, @UsThreeCoons @MeisRoxyThePug, @PumpkinPuddy, and of course Club Owner @KingTuttiFruiti is often behind the bar.

Please take the time to thank each of these fine workers for making #NipClub THE PLACE TO BE!!!

Your pal, Tiger Tommy
@TheNascarKitty-NipClub Manager

I can't believe you included me in this. I think I've barktended #nipclub only once or twice. Thank you. And thank you to all the pals who work #nipclub every week and make it the special place it is.

It's an honor to work with Pearl. She has done a fabulous job on the extras of the blog and blows me away too with her creativity. She certainly came to our rescue for the Petie/Pandy wedding with less than a week to do it too. Thanks for the night off pal, but I really wouldn't know what to do if I didn't get behind the bar. So count me in for my regular shift and I'll hang around after shift is over.
I need to give Pearl a special SMOOCH dat night.

We always tell Pearl she is the best. She learned so quickly and has a great imagination for thinking up new drinks and noms. So thanks for including us all. But Pearl wins!

You sure are right, she's always a sweetie-pie!

Delighted to see @TinyPearlCat honored - hard-working, creative, inventive, and a kind, considerate friend to every #NipClub patron... and the one who cleans up all the tracks left by the #BadBoyzOfTwitter and #PinkAngels bikes when we've performed at #NipClub!

Let's make this a very special night for a sweet kitty that I'm very proud to call a friend :-)
