Dave’s Stagecoach loses its bartender … it’s hoped the jukebox lives on

John Yuelkenbeck, responsible for one of the best bar jukeboxes in town at Dave’s Stagecoach, is retiring from his faithful post behind the Westport dive’s beaten counter. The part-time bartender has been working at Dave’s for more than 13 years, and he’s the master behind Jukebox Roulette, too. Here’s what the bar’s Facebook page says:


a sad day at Dave’s Stagecoach Inn… John Yuelkenbeck is retiring! He

has decided to devote all his time and efforts to his business, so we

must bid him farewell 🙁 Come join us for “John Yuelkenbeck

Appreciation Day” on Saturday, January 8, 1 pm – ??. Pot Luck and

Guiness Beer drink specials!

Yuelkenbeck helped us out with some cheating-song selections for Valentine’s Day last year, as only a bartender could (and some heady cheating stories, too). Read the story here.
