FBS_finals2007Hope you enjoyed your time off and made some memories while relaxing yourself and getting some piece of mind.

Now it is back to work and catching up with the rest of the world. Don’t you just love that… you take time off to relax and forget about work and when you come back you have to work on catching up where you left off? Funny concept eh?

Speaking of of working… we catch up with the finals of the first Flair bartending competition based on working Flair, the “Flair Bartenders Shakedown“. With over six months of qualifying and a blind working Flair round, you know it had to be fun! All on our ‘Comp Reviews’ page. What can you do with a half full bottle of liquor?

We may never know but we can keep up to date with their web reality show… “Sin City Saloon”. You can check it out on our ‘And Finally’ page. Mike’s on vacation and they left Rick in charge… Oh No…!

Then we wake up with a slap of reality from Philip Duff and look at some of the differences between the US and the rest of the world’s bars. This months Flairbar.com article “Opening the little bar that could”. A must read for all Flair bartenders thinking of opening their own bar one day. Check it out on our ‘Articles’ page. Who would of thought that it was inspired by “Dilbert”.
