Bryan Allen – Manager
Almost got all the prizes for being the first New Year's Day Baby, but popped out an hour before the ball dropped! Instead I was probably the last kid born that year at Fitzsimmons Army Hospital in Denver, Colorado. I am a proud Military Brat at heart, and have been in San Antonio for most of my life. As a child I would take the two day car ride back to Pennsylvania to visit all my family. Now I fly back and forth about twice a year to see loved ones. I absolutely love San Antonio, The Spurs, and everything else this great city has to offer- especially the golf courses. I started playing golf in 1997 with some of my colleagues from John Jay HS. It is my all time favorite past time. I've worked as an Assistant Pro at local and surrounding courses for over five years. While doing so, I started my first job as a bartender at Champps Americana in 1999. Eventually I took the River Boat Cruise to MadDogs. I like to experiment mixing drinks and several of us represented MadDogs at the 2005 Margarita Pour Off. We won all three trophies available for taste and style that year. I have been a bartender at MadDogs for over five years, and now am the Bar Manager at this prestigious establishment on the beautiful River Walk. Hope to see you soon!
