This video is my 5-minute Final Round of the Zero Gravity Flair Bartending Competition in Omaha, NE. After qualifying for the finals with my 3-minute routine the first night, I had to expand to fill an extra two minutes here. If you watch the video of my first round, you'll see they are pretty similar, with a few extra moves added to increase the level of difficulty. 
Overall, I was pretty happy with the round. As opposed to the first night, where my first 2 minutes were near-perfect and my last minute fell apart, my drops in this round were scattered throughout. I was a little annoyed that I had a drop or two so early and on such easy moves, but I made up for it by hitting nearly all of my big-ticket moves that I wanted. I forgot to throw in my 4-bottle flash at the end, but I was really happy that I landed my chin stack. I ended up taking 10th place, which I was completely happy with. There was some pretty awesome competitors.
