Eliminated: Lisa Lerma, Moe's Cantina (River North) and Ohm

How long have you worked there? Began at Moe's (where she originally served but now more frequently bartends) in September 2011; started about a year-and-a-half ago at Ohm, where she does bottle service Age: 26 Neighborhood: Bridgeport What's your favorite thing about the job? Meeting new and exciting people. "It's more of a friendly, open atmosphere at Moe's. The nightclub's a different vibe than the bar. I would prefer Moe's because you get to talk to people more and have a little more interaction." What's your most memorable story/experience on the job? New Year's Eve at Moe's. "It was really fun. There were just so many people ... Probably one of the most eventful, happiest nights. The vibe's good, the music's good. Wall to wall people." What plans or ambitions do you have for the future? Lerma's in her junior year at UIC and wants to move on to do medical device sales in Chicago. On the benefits of the private attention afforded by bottle service: "I think people who have a celebration or want to experience a special event, or if they have birthdays or a bachelorette party going on, it's a great thing to do. You get the special VIP treatment for the occasion you're looking for."
