FOR THE LOVE OF FLAIR! Will you be my…

Updated: February 1, 2006

MartiniThis month we all tend to appreciate our significant other a little more. We get them gifts to show our affection. We buy flowers, chocolates, jewelry, cards, etc…

We invest time, thought and love into our relationships to insure its continued success. We appreciate our significant other and all they do, so we do what we can to make them happy and progress things further.

To most of us Flair is a passion and something we all love. Not the same love we share with our significant others but still a love indeed. So wouldn’t it make sense to also invest time, thought and love into our Flair as well as our relationships? Now before all the Flair girlfriends around the world unite and mob me for that statement, think about it…


Legends7_groupWomen don’t you like to see your partner happy? Of course you do, who wouldn’t? If Flair bartending is something your partner enjoys, has a passion for and makes them happy… Then let them be happy! Better yet help support them in their passion and let them invest time (practice), thought (more practice) and love (competing) into it.

With you in their corner helping support them and pushing them to their fullest potential who knows how great they can become? Now on the flip side gentlemen don’t forget to neglect your significant other because you are practicing and competing to much and consume yourself just in Flair. There is a balance. Respect each other and your passions.

One individual who has had the passion of Flair longer then most others out there is Kip Powers. He has been competing since the early years of Quest. Always with a current picture of his daughter Kori on the bartop with him. Every year he would compete and we would all see her grow up through the years during the competitions. The balance of love for his family and his love of Flair was obvious. Now Kip has taken his love for Flair into a new direction. He organized his first Flair bartending competition last month and you can read Mike McLean’s full review on our ‘Comp Reviews’ page.


ChocolatesOne of the competitors at the competition was Paul Trzcianko. Paul has been successfully competing for a couple of years and you can get to know more about him on our ‘Interviews’ page. No translation needed. Then he shows us a “candy” sweet two tin and bottle sequence on our ‘Masterclass’ page. And we would have settled for flowers ;-)

Next we have an insight on the Flair scene in the midwest and starting up a Flair based company all brought to you by Rob Turek. Check it out on our ‘Articles’ page. If they can do it so can you!

Then we go to someone who is not afraid to voice their opinions… Toby Ellis talks to us about what it takes to win and the proper way to compete. You can read it all on ‘Cut Off’ by Toby Ellis. Bitch slap and wake up call included.
LocosYou may have noticed over the last couple of months a format change with our issues. Many of you have voiced your opinions and comments. Well now we leave it up to you our loyal Flairbar.com readers. On our ‘And Finally’ page we give you the chance to be heard and voice your opinion. This should go over better then the last presidential ballot.

Also, the Vice President of the USBG (United States Bartenders Guild) Nevada Chapter, Bobby G., is ‘In The Mix’ again as he shares his thoughts with us.

Martini_JohnWe have our results of our ‘Reader Contest’ plus our regular features, more ‘Barware’, more pages, and more Flair than you can shake a box of chocolates at.









To Flair & Friends.
