I am self-employed and my work schedule has been erratic as of recently. I am looking to supplement my income, and I was thinking about bartending.
Is this a viable option here in NYC for a guy who has to go to bartending school first? And furthermore, can anyone recommend a good bartending school in the area?

I live in California. If I have a wedding reception at a hotel or restaurant and serve alcohol using the facility's bartenders and servers, who is responsible/legally liable if one of my guests gets into an accident - me, as the host of the event, or the hotel/restaurant who provided the servers and bartenders?
