This is Why I'm Hot

Chris The Bartender in Flair Bartending, Random, YouTube

So, for shits and giggles, I've been posting a "Learn to Flair Bartend" video on YouTube about once a week since July. I never had any intention of really reaching a lot of people, I just needed a video-hosting platform so I could post training clips on ChrisTheBartender.

I'm kind of excited to be able to say that last week my 20 videos hit 50,000 views. As of today, I've got 56,000+ views and almost 150 subscribers. I'm nowhere near Numa Numa kid, Chocolate Rain, or even the sneezing panda, but it's cool to see nonetheless. And getting messages from people in Argentina, Thailand, and Denmark, knowing that I'm helping people learn how to add some pizzazz to their bartending, that just about warms my heart like a fine 18 year-old scotch on a cold Madison night.

Thanks for watching. Keep practicing and I'll keep posting. It's been pretty basic, but we're about to get crazy real soon.
