George Martin has been serving up drinks for more than 50 years and is said to be the oldest – and most entertaining – bartender in America.

And he calls Pittsburgh home.

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 92nd 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 wife died.

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