Liz is an Irish Jew from Queens, so she likes to say she’s a cheap drunk. She’s been teaching high school for almost ten years, and basically always needs a drink.
Chris is two-parts generic white guy and one-part Utah ex-Mormon, shaken for eighteen-years or so in NYC. The result is a generally bitter finish and an acquired taste. He’s taught 18-21 year-old at-risk students for five years, so a stiff drink is always appreciated.
They’ve been drinking buddies since 2008, and got married in 2010.
