THE ART OF FLAIR

I can appreciate any art form that began in a T.G.I. Friday's.

I had a flairhouse. Then the Recession hit and the bank took my flair away. Guess it's time to enter another Flair World.

I LIKE TO THINK OF FLAIR AS AN ART FORM
Yeah I bet you do, sister.

I like to think of my blog as a literary masterpiece, but that doesn't make it so, either.

Only us bartenders can make flair the sport it is meant to be?

I thought it was a cheap gimmick to bring in customers

something along the lines of "Which bar do you guys wanna go to for drinks?"

"I don't know, but i heard _____ has a bartender who flips shit. Let's hope he smashes a bottle on someones face by accident, LET'S GO!"

On the bright side, they probably make a lot of money - all that stupid tossing and flipping is irritating sober, but I bet it's enthralling while you're drunk.

I thought this was going to be about Ric Flair...

Such BULLSHIT!!

Only thing that could have made this video better was if you had Ric Flair as the instructor.

I wish I lived in a flair house...

He should be wearing pieces of flair to express himself in a fun way.

WHY did you only give us two minutes of this? Why do you have to keep the rest a secret?!

That was terrible! And my favorite vid I've seen in a long time.

You're right, Mr. Flair. The spillage of alcohol is UNACCEPTABLE.

the tuxedo guy at 0:06 is trying to steal the bartender's flair!

Ugh. Hearing that obnoxious saxophone riff so many times in a row makes me long for the gentle class of Yakety Sax.

I have a cocktail competition in the morning in Downtown LA, and I will use none of these techniques. Last place for me!

I worked as a bartender once. Made more money off tips when people are drunk (like someone once gave me a $100 bill when they thought it was a $1!) than juggling. When someone orders a drink they want it now, not after doing circus tricks for five minutes.

They come for the drinks, but they stay for 'The 900 Number' on endless loop.

00s? Are you fucking kidding me?

Can we please retire that riff forever?

That riff comes from "Breakestra - Cramp Your Style"

The more you know.
