In an interview with NPR in 2012, Moehringer explained how he came to frequent the bar:

“… pretty early on, my mom kinda handed me over to my uncle and those bar guys, asked them, you know, to take me to the beach and the soccer game.” She knew I needed some sort of male influence. She trusted my Uncle Charlie more than she – maybe she had more than she should have. “So from a young age I was spending, you know, quite a bit of time with these guys. I had never sat at the bar with a scotch in front of me. It wasn’t that strange. But – and in fact, these guys were pretty careful and conscientious babysitters until I was of legal age. “
