A nice little profile piece in the Boston Globe on the plight of man's best/worst friend at 2 am: the shot girl.

Brace yourself for this revelation: "Unlike waitresses, shot girls actively encourage drinking, a practice that some experts say could lead to excessive consumption."

From the Globe:

Abbey Roos says she has the perfect college job.

The Central Connecticut State University freshman works one day a week. Her business attire includes knee-high boots and a cut-off T-shirt, and many nights she walks away with hundreds of untaxed dollars.

The slender, attractive, young woman uses sex appeal to sell tubes of liquor to patrons at Club Blu in Hartford. She is a shot girl.

"It's easy for a college student," Roos said. "You're going to class all week, you're working on papers and on weekends, college kids want to go out. So why not work at a bar?"

The 19-year-old is one of an estimated 40,000 shot girls hired to boost liquor sales nationwide at clubs ranging from those in small towns such as Lebanon, N.H., to Miami's trendy South Beach night spots.
