This Coyote earned her boots! She might be 2 beats off, but NYC loves her. Alyssia can sing, dance and sell…sell…

What’s the most fun about your job at Coyote Ugly?
I think the most fun thing about this job is having customers become a part of the show. They don’t expect it, so it’s a fun surprise.
What makes you a good Coyote?
The thing I always keep in mind in every shift is to recreate the image that the movie has had on our crowd and putting my own twist on it. To be a good Coyote, I am constantly thinking. And timing is everything!!
How long have you been a bartender?
I have only bartended for the Coyote Ugly company, so two years.
What do you like to do on your off time?
I am a complete nerd. I love to go to the Museum of Natural History whenever I’m off. I love the fact that I can time travel and gain so much knowledge for free!
What is your favorite type of music?
So I listen to a ton of music, but I would have to say my favorite genres are EDM, classic rock, indie rock, and country. See how Coyote is my cup of tea?
Do you think the movie is anything like the real thing?
This job is identical to the movie, and then some! When I began in 2014, I watched the movie before every shift for about the first three weeks haha.
Why should a potential customer come and visit you?
Customers should come visit me because I will give the Coyote experience you were expecting! It will be the best way to cut lose without any judgment. My catchphrase: Let’s get weird!!
Do you have any advice for women who want to be a Coyote?
It takes lots of hard work, brains, personality, and dedication to be a Coyote.
