Best bouncers don’t bounce

Durango’s barroom peacekeepers say the key is preemptive action
“We show them respect and they show respect back,” said James Holmes, a bouncer at Pongas, while checking IDs of people who were part of a bachelor party. Employees who work at local bars say actually tossing someone out of a bar is not the norm in their jobs.
“We believe in making a good first and last impression. We’re the first person they’ll see and the last person they’ll see,” said bouncer Justin Aukerman, right, who was working the door on Thursday night at The Summit.
“Our job is not to get aggressive ... but to get to a situation before it escalates,” said Kevin Gross, left, the head of the floor staff at the Wild Horse Saloon.
