Our Butter Halves | Sean Paddock


What is your role at Bread & Butter Concepts? I am a bartender. My job is to serve food and drinks, making sure everyone is having a good time!

How long have you been with us at BBC? 3 1/2 months

Favorite part of your job?

My favorite part about my job is my job! I have the privilege of selling great food, great drink, and good times. I don't think it gets much better than that!

Describe yourself in 6 words or less. An overly optimistic bar nerd.

Favorite Kansas City activity to do? Although I love the WWI museum, I'd say walking around the Crossroads district and checking out art on First Friday's would be my favorite "Kansas City activity".

Where’s your favorite place to eat in the city? I don't think I can narrow it down to one, but my top five in no specific order: The Rieger, Extra Virgin, Nara, ABC Cafe, and Providence Pizza.

What’s something about you that would surprise your coworkers? Most people aren't aware of my secret love for Malt Shop oldies and classical music.

What’s on your recently watched on Netflix? My Netflix is filled with documentaries. I love anything about nature or space; did you know the barred owl (native to Missouri) can fly completely silently?

What do you like to do outside of work? I'm a huge video game nerd, so when I'm not out walking my mini dachshund or out on the town I usually find myself playing Xbox.

What’s the best memory or story you have at Bread & Butter Concepts? My favorite BBC memory would have to be the opening night of Republica. We had put in so many hours preparing the bar it was a weight off our shoulders. I think that was when we all came together as a bar staff and realized how awesome everything is when you're part of a team!
