Do you prefer “Joe” or “Joseph”?
I prefer Joe, but my mom says it’s unprofessional to use my nickname.
How do you appreciate your new existence?
Honestly, it’s really cool. I never thought in a million years that I would be a LEGO. Talk about bragging rights.
Have you made new LEGO friends?
I made tons of new LEGO friends. The other day I was hanging out with LEGO Harry Potter and LEGO Luke Skywalker.
Take us through a day in the life of LEGO Joe.
I wake up with a slight back pain from sitting on a brick all night long. I put on my pants / shoe combo and go out. I visit my local waterhole, which is around the block. I see some LEGO friends, then I go to work serving some of the best drinks in LEGO land.
Have you recently traveled to LEGO worlds? If not, what are the best places you would like to visit?
I saw the Bionicles! I haven’t seen them since I was a little LEGO boy.
Have you ever watched any of the LEGO movies? Who are your favorite characters?
I have! I really like LEGO Batman and Green Lantern.
What are your ambitions? Do you plan to start your own LEGO bar soon?
I hope in the near future I will have enough to build my own bar. Until then, come see LEGO Joe at Saint Leon.
You are part of the first line of LEGO Bartenders. Who else would you like to see join the ranks of LEGO bartenders?
If you could have a drink with a LEGO person, past or present, who would it be? What cocktail could you prepare for this person?
I would love to have a drink with LEGO Spiderman. I’d make him the meanest Manhattan he’s ever had.
As a bartender, what’s your favorite cocktail for the warmer months of 2021?
All that is bright and refreshing. Strawberries are in season and are great to use in any drink.
Can you tell us something about the Joe Stinchcomb man that readers might not know?
That he always plays with LEGOs and reads comics. He’s still a big kid at heart.
