Local character hones his bartending skills

FLAGLER BEACH -- Thirteen years ago, Mark Woods came to visit and never left.

On a mental break from life as a counselor at a Missouri juvenile detention center, Woods landed at his parents' pad to figure things out. And that's when the beach called.

"That was kind of a crossroads," said Woods, 37, now a bartender at the Golden Lion Cafe on State Road A1A.

Woods -- also called "Tikitender" from his tiki hut-serving days at a local resort -- is known for wearing kilts ("They're very comfy; I recommend every man tries one.") and for his red goatee and easygoing grin.

I wouldn't call it pride, but I am very happy to love what I do!

Thanks to Tony & Carolyn for the great venue and to all my customers & co-workers who make my job a pleasure.
