After working her way through college as a bartender, Denise Mitchell opened Bucks County School of Bartending in 1999. Her BA from Arcadia University led to a teaching certification, and she decided to mix all of her talents together with her bartending school. Eleven years later, the Casino Dealer School was added, and graduates from this multifaceted institution go on to place bets and mix drinks in casinos, bars, and warp zones around the state. Courses often include a strategy handout for tips on betting and bluffing, and Mitchell's instructors draw on their experiences in casinos across the globe to give true-to-life advice. Alternatively, the standard curriculum of her bartending seminars builds professional bartenders from the ground up with lessons in bar equipment, pouring, and how to listen to patrons' life confessions without screaming.
