Getting Social with Zach

Chances are you’ve seen this luscious head of fiery hair manning the bar on many occasions. Now it’s time to learn more about the man behind the man bun.

Zach graduated with a Bachelor of Science from FSU in 2008 and added to his impressive credentials with a Masters in Media Communication Studies in 2014. He occasionally shares his knowledge with today’s bright young students as a member of the Florida State University faculty. He joined Madison Social in February 2014 and the rest is history...

Let’s get social with Zach.

Q: What is your favorite dish and favorite drink at Madison Social?

A: My favorite dish would have to be the Fresh Catch, grilled with a side of brussels sprouts with bacon. My favorite drink is the Fresca Libre.

Q: What does your perfect day off look like?

A: Probably a light workout, a solid nap and an excellent concert.

Q: What is your favorite Madison Social memory?

A: The exciting finish to the Notre Dame game two years ago. Specifically, the explosion of cheers that occurred afterwards.

Q: What is your favorite restaurant or bar in Tallahassee? (besides Madison Social, of course.)

A: Backwoods Bistro, definitely their brunch. Highly recommend the Shrimp and Grits. Favorite bar would be Liberty. You can’t go wrong with any cocktail at Liberty. And their Fish tacos for life.

Q: What is the most unusual or interesting job you had before coming to Madison Social?

A: I taught high school english. British Literature and FCAT Writes coach. It was quite an adventure.

Q: If Hollywood made a movie about your life, who would you like to be cast as you?

A: Well there’s who I want to be cast as me and the obvious answer. I would say Daniel Day Lewis, but of course the obvious answer would be Kristover Hivju who plays Tormund Giantsbane in Game of Thrones. (We’ve provided a picture for comparison)


Q: If you could be any animal, what animal would you be and why?

A: I would be a sea otter because they are playful and the most adorable creatures on God’s green Earth. And they have a fun, goodnatured spirit about them. But they are not to be trifled with! Do not try to catch a sea otter. Also, at least one of them can play basketball...I’ve seen it.

So the next time you see Zach slinging drinks, give him a fist bump and call him Tormund.
