A brotender is a bartender
who is also a close friend. A brotender looks
after his friends like he looks
after his bar. Making sure they don't drink
too much or hit on married women with angry jealous husbands. If need
be the brotender will give
you a ride home.
Dude, Brian, I'm so glad I have you as my brotender. Without you that
Marine would have kicked my ass if I had hit on his wife.
