O.D.B. | Abbrev./Slang/Species | Short for Off Duty Bartender. A harmless but sometimes insufferable Gastown wanderer who can’t get through his/her first drink at a bar without letting the house barkeep know that he/she’s also in the trade, and to a very respectable degree indeed. Known to ask if anything is being barrel-aged. If the answer is no, attempts to stump the bartender with vague classics to establish dominance, much in the same manner a lion sprays urine (“I’ll have a Savoy Corpse Reviver, that is if you know how to make one…”).
Not to be confused with Ol’ Dirty Bastard of Wutang fame.
Usage: “An O.D.B. came in last night and went on a Prohibition crawl without leaving his stool…”
