    I wouldn't call him "World's Best Bartender," as if tending bar were merely acrobatics. I once knew a bartender who had flair with a cocktail shaker, but it fell well short of showing off. The best bartenders are good company, first.

    R.I.P., A-----.

      Fun. I'm old enough to have seen Cocktail with Tom Cruise back in the 80's, or 90's. The only thing memorable about it was the flair bartending scenes.

        Very entertaining and made me marvel at his coordination and skill. I would love a see an active brain scan of that guy while he executes one of his routines!

        Heh. Like Hippy Hippy Shakes? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Ybjzz... :-D
        Bryan Brown wasn't too shabby either.

          Reminds me how much I dislike Tom Cruise! I thought the flair scenes were more impressive than that in the movie, but it's nothing like the guy in the video. Maybe I'm confusing the movie scenes w/ competitions I've seen. And, now I can't get the song Kokomo out of my mind.
