Bud & Alley’s Waterfront Restaurant, Seaside
For nearly 20 years, Mo has been the life of the party at Bud & Alley’s Rooftop Deck bar in Seaside. This dashing Bossier City, Louisiana native is at home in the restaurant biz. He started bussing tables at the age of 14 and has happily poured, shaken and stirred libations for 38 of his 56 years.
Silvered haired Moseley is as charming and engaging as a bartender could be and clearly loves what he does for a living. “It’s like going to a party every night with different people. You’re pretty popular, because you have the alcohol,” he quips—something he does often.
One of Moseley’s secrets to success is being omniscient. “For my regulars I know what they want, and I like to have what they want to drink ready and before they order it. It makes me feel good knowing I’ve given everyone I serve a good experience.”
