Everyone at the Elks Lodge #339 in Pittsburgh’s Northside neighborhood knows Martin. He is the regular Friday night bartender.

But on this Friday night, Martin served up 92 drinks to celebrate his birthday.

Martin’s secret to living a long life while still working, he said, is dating. Others in the bar said he is now a ladies man since his late wife passed away.

He was recognized Friday with a city proclamation as “Mr. Entertainment.”
