Scott, Sorry it has taken so long for me to finally give you some feedback on the bartending class I attended this year at the Country Club in Augusta. Sold my restaurant and am heading back to Vegas for a while.
Anyway, as far as your flair bartending course goes… I was amazed at the whole course that your organization provided!!
Usually there are classes that you take that have a dull moment where students are dozing off or not paying attention, but not in your class. The hands on parts, the one on one instruction, the dvd/videos, and the teaming up of classmates and making them perform in front of the class is excellent.
And the bar managerial points that you bring up through out the class could be a class in its own. Hey, I owned a bar and I gained plenty of knowledge that I will use in the future!
Overall, I would recommend your course to any bar owner who is interested in bringing in flair bartending to their bar and to any bartender that wants to learn flair or improve on their flair skills.
The class was outstanding and I appreciate you letting me attend (and Lewis), I had a blast and still practice about 8 hours a week; I even built a practice area in my loft!! Poor neighbors!
One thing I would like to ask you. Is their any where in Vegas to get a little more training? I am headed out there in the next week and will be out there for a few months and would love to pick up on some new material.
Thanks again for everything, enjoyed hanging out and if I open a new place up, you WILL be getting a call for another training class!!
still flipping, Mike Guthrie
