If you’re looking for a bartending job, try one at a restaurant, advises Amber Knable , 31, of Ross. Knable has been bartending for about four years, most recently at Nakama Japanese Steakhouse & Sushi Bar for the past year. She says the tips are better than at bars, and you generally don’t have to worry about throwing drunks out.

What’s it like working on the South Side• In this location, it’s good. I don’t think I’d like to work any other place.

There’s been a lot of talk about there being too many bars on the South Side. What do you think• I would say it’s not a good thing. People get a little crazy.

Is there a drink you particularly like making• Yes. It’s like my drink. I call it grape soda. I just started throwing stuff together. It’s purple, and it’s good.

Ever been to Japan• No, but I love the food. And I’d like to go there some day.

What’s your dream job• Nursing. Totally different from what this is. I’ve always liked taking care of people. Additional Information:

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
