hi there, scott. hope all is well with you. i know you must have been busy lately. how was vegas? my name is kimberly. we have spoken a couple of times. i am the girl from fort hood, tx, sixty miles north of austin.
i work at the local red lobster. first, i must thank you again. i have a fifteen video set on working flair, competition and tadem flair.
i have been practicing some simple comfortable moves, and have been improving in all sorts of ways behind the bar. my money and tips have increased, and i am just having an all around good time.
i am writing because i have some exciting news: one of the local bars is having a competition. it is nothing serious, more fun than anything which makes me less nervous since it will be my first one. i tend to freeze on a “stage”. because i am new to that experience, i am nervous, but i remind myself that it is just another bar i am working in. not to mention the practice and preparation so that i can not only impress others, but impress myself!!
another bartender that works at this bar called me with the details and was inspired to put on “real” competitions here with sponsers. i was hoping i could pick your brain for some information and advise. i know you must be busy, so only at your convenience. thanks so much. do take care…
hello scott, i finally got your dvd. it is great! lots of stuff i didnt even think of tring. anyway turns out my credit fraud is a pretty big thing.
a group of kid here have been hacking recently. and due to it being so big i may not find out for a long time or ever how this happen. i am pretty much going to just let it go. unless they tell me how it happen. but even it did happen from your site. i know now u had no part in it. and really it is just a matter of smart but stupid kids.
so thank u on your quick caring responds. it means alot. and i will order from u again!! think your dvd is awesome.
check out our website www.cinderinn.com and look in the future for us flairing lol. we will be posting them on there. to make our site better. thanks again veronica
ps the bartneders say it is hard to learn the things u personally show. your to cute they much rather watch u !!! lol thoguht u would get a kick out of that. but dont go getting cocky now !!! lol bye
Dear Scott Young (Extremebartending.com),
The Bartenders Guild would like to thank you for your generous support at this year’s FLAIRFEST. Without you and your company this amazing event could have never taken place.
We have received excellent positive feedback from the fans, judges, organizers, competitors, and other sponsors/venues. FLAIRFEST III was the largest cash and prize total we have ever had in three years of running a total of nine flair bartending competitions and the largest in Canada to date.
With your support the event is becoming more and more popular at a local and international level.
I hope you and your company have both found this to be a promising investment in exposure and promotion and that you will continue to support us through the years to come.
Till next time around…Thanks
The Bartenders Guild
Hi, Scott. This is Giselle from crazy ass Jack Rabbit’s in Indiana. I’m sure you remember us wacky girls. =) Just dropping you a line to see how you are doing.
And, yes, I’m still flairing!! I think I can step it up a bit, too. Besides, I think we should have another flairing class just we can fly you out here again. Heheh. Do you remember “Hot for Teacher”?? Hahah.
Take care, cutie. And write me back.
Check you out later, eh? <– See, I’m practicing my Canadian…

Hello there. My name is David Covert. I am a huge fan of your work, and thank you for all the information over the years.
Thank you again for the hat and shirt and I can’t even express how cool it is that you tried to contact me. Hope things are going good for you and I am looking forward to hearing from you again if you have the time.
Hey Scott, I have been working with your videos and I like them alot! However I’m not the only one who liked them. My puppy got ahold of the case and disc one of the first level training series and now it doesn’t work.
I am just wondering if there is any way I could get another copy of that disc.
I’m not sure if it is posible but would be greatly appreciated.
Just let me know.

Hey Scott!! It’s Ryan from your Jan. bartender seminar. I am just writing to let you know that I had a great time in Vancouver.
The seminar was awesome. And yes I have been practicing. Learning flair the correct way has boosted my confidence. Thank you guys for making me feel welcome. The Roxy was unforgetable.
Tell Micah and your mom I said hello!! Will you guys be in Vegas Trade Show in March? If so we should get together at some point and drink a few.
I will stop by your booth to see how you guys are doing. Thanks again.
Is there a flair competition this year during the seminar? Do you have any hook ups on getting me in to observe? Can you introduce me to some of the talent?
The flair videos are great! they gave me a great foundation. ive been flairing for just about a year now and im able to hang with my co-workers that have been doing it for 4 years.
Here’s a funny flair story….. i was in the middle of a squence and i tossed a tin behind my back, but it slipped and it bounced off the bar over an ash tray only to clip a freshly made martini which spilled all over the customer! thank god he was my friend so he didnt stiff me
thanks again for all the help.
it was a WONDERFUL seminar and an inspiring one. i found the love of flair bartending but now its more like a passion. its fairly new in jamaica and u inspired me to want to take it to a higher level sepecially being a girl which as you said is really rear.
this is what i want to do.. after your seminar all i wanted to do was come and practice. i want to be one of the best. like you and christian delpech. its now a dream to train with you and propable joining your group (if its possible) i dont want to just be a flair bartender or just a bartender or server i want to be the best.
it would be greatly appreciated if you gave me some advice and guidance.
thank you a million and i will never forget this eye opening experience.
I got the DVD which is currently circulating through my bar staff. Monday I have a mixology class and we are going to use some of the stuff we got from the DVD. I AM SO EXCITED!!.
On Tuesday I am headed downtown to talk with some of the other bar owners to see if they would be intrested in doing a class together. I will keep you posted, just wanted to say thanks again.
