Trevor Vaughn, Mixologist
Actor/singer/songwriter blames all his various forms on entertainment on his family, who humored him greatly as a child. As an acting graduate from University of North Carolina School of the Arts, Trevor has played Shakespeare fools in NYC to cross dressing in screwball comedies like The Mystery of Irma Vep directed by Kate Mueth in East Hampton.

Matthew Walters, Mixologist
Matthew embarked on his “hospitality” journey as a busboy in his native Baltimore’s Little Italy at the tender age of just 15. Now, more than two decades later, a few graduate degrees earned, a few broken hearts suffered, he is still plugging away at it. After moving to New York, he worked at Danny Meyer’s Gramercy Tavern as a captain, moved over to the bar at Brooklyn’s iconic farm to table restaurant, Franny’s where he eventually became the bar manager. Later, he created and managed the critically noted cocktail program at Dover. He currently works at Brooklyn Social, Greenwood Park, nurses an infant bitters company, and searches for the thus far elusive “regular” job that would justify the many years he spent in graduate school. His cocktails have been featured in Time Out and New York magazines, published in cookbooks, and even earned him a critic’s award for his thai influenced Bloody Mary.
