One of gay Houston’s own is making a name for herself in the city’s broader landscape, and all the single ladies may want to perk up and take notice. This bachelorette babe is not only easy on the eyes but available.
Meet Jojo Martinez (photo). The bartender at Bovine & Barley puts the LGBT — well, specically the L — into the most recent Sizzling Singles list on Culture Map. The “10 most eligible bachelors and bachelorettes in Houston” highlights a diverse mix of singles ready to mingle, and the 35-year-old brings the humor and sexy to her profile for the feature.
And pay heed: Martinez is no ordinary drink slinger. She enters and wins bartending faceoffs and makes annual visits to vineyards, breweries and distilleries around the world. If you want a shot with her, know your drinks. You should also polish off your social skills because Martinez demands conversation, humor and respect in her ideal mate.
It wouldn’t hurt if you serve up some Charlotte Voisey Realness, either. “The Proper Pour” host has it all, Martinez tells Culture Map.
“She's a brilliant bartender, both graceful and passionate,” Martinez says. “Plus, that British accent…”
What not to bring to the table? Laziness.
“Time should be used creatively and productively,” she says.
