Old Bartender Turns 97

It’s not every day that you walk into a bar and see a bartender in their 90s.

But in Bridgeport, Connecticut, it’s a familiar sight at Panama Joe’s Cafe.

Ninety seven-year-old Angie MacLean has been bartending there for nearly two decades.

In celebration of her 97th birthday Friday (4/6), MacLean enjoyed her favorite drink—Bailey’s.

MacLean has been bartending since she was nearly 60 years old.

She even worked behind the bar with Panama Joe's Cafe owners, Joe Fernandes Senior and Junior.

MacLean says that at times she gets tired, but she keeps going.

For her birthday, MacLean will be going to the casino, and she doesn't plan on leaving the bartending scene any time soon.
