Default Faux - Tropical Bar School

My friend Jeff Berry asked me to put this on the forums so here it is.

Jeff Berry and Stanislav Vadrna will give you an entertaining and
enlightening overview of Tiki and faux-tropical culture: the
fascinating history, the top-secret recipes, the tricks of the trade,
and the legendary personalities behind the original 1930s-1970s Tiki
Bar craze. Enjoy the Aloha Spirit of this unique experience, and take
home new skills with your certificate from the first summer
faux-tropical bar school.

- Course is geared mainly to professional bartenders, but fans of Tiki
culture are also welcome.
- Course will take 4 days (6 hours per day). Places in each 4-day
session are limited to 15 participants.
- Course will be held on the island of Antiparos in Greece.
- Course will end with a graduation luau party, and certificate.

Program of Bum Berry's and Captain Vadrna's Faux-Tropical Bar School

TIKI HISTORY. To the beat of pagan drums and the seductively swaying
hips of dancing wahines, set sail on a voyage of discovery. Experience
the roots of Tiki culture in French Polynesia and Hawaii, the birth of
Tiki mixology in Cuba and Jamaica, and the explosion of faux-tropical
bars from Hollywood to Manhattan.

THE COCKTAIL AS CONVERSATION PIECE. A new approach to the psychology
between bartender and guest. Get the conversation started with
innovative Tiki drink presentation, garnish, and serving techniques -
from Tiki mugs and bowls to custom ice molds and flaming drinks.

MIXOLOGY. The fine art of drink mixing. Master the recipes and
preparation of faux tropical drinks, swizzles and punches. Create your
own faux tropical cocktail menu. Learn everything there is to know
about rum, fruits, juices, syrups, bitters, ice - and the coding and
decoding of "lost" vintage drink formulas.

DESIGN YOUR OWN TIKI BAR. A complete guide to Tiki uniforms, tropical
decor, and exotic atmosphere; Tiki music, bands, and CD's; and even
Polynesian tattoo style and culture. The art of making authentic Luaus.

EL CLUB DE CANTINEROS DE LA REPUBLICA DE CUBA. El Arte del Cantinero
Cubano: History and Legacy of the CLUB DE CANTINEROS DE LA REPUBLICA
DE CUBA. Cuban tropical drinks from the "golden age", their
development and influence on later tiki drinks.

BARTENDER'S SIXTH SENSE - THE FINE ART OF TENDING A BAR. Bar body
language, Ichigo Ichie, and Sprezzatura Bartending. Stan will show you
his own WAY OF THE SPREZZATURA BARTENDER, sharing his knowledge,
tricks, and experience so that you too can "read your guest's body,
mind, and palate." Learn the ART OF THE BAR, improving your business
through NON-VERBAL COMMUNICATION and the NEVER-ENDING DEVOTION TO
SATISFYING YOUR CUSTOMERS. "Bar psychology is both a science and an
art," says Stan. "What sets apart the good bartenders from the great
bartenders is the ability to read people and situations. Students of
psychology should have one or two terms of compulsory internship in a
BAR. So far, I know no better school for knowing the human nature and
soul."

PAST TIKI MASTERS. The power of Don the Beachcomber's, Trader Vic's,
and Steven Crane's personalities drove their decades-long success.
Learn the art of creating of your own authentic brand.

UNFORGETTABLE SERVICE AND EXPERIENCE. Aloha and the way of getting
lei'd. "What is aloha? The spirit of aloha is a way of life the
indigenous Hawaiians have embraced for hundreds of years -- it
encompasses the secrets of GRACE, WELL-BEING AND HAPPY DISPOSITION for
which hawaiians are well known. A healthy and balanced life as
Hawaiians begins with the spirit of aloha ... the meaning of aloha
embraces everything from HELLO, AND GOODBYE, TO LOVE, CARING, SHARING,
GOODWILL TO ALL and is defined AS A WAY OF LIFE. The more powerful
meaning is found in its direct translation, "ha" meaning breath of
life. The ancient greeting of aloha was originally reserved for loved
ones and close family (ohana) it involves rubbing noses, saying aloha
and inhaling each others breath (or ha) or the aloha kiss. This is
considered the most heartfelt and sincere welcome- to share your life
energy with another person- and is the foundation of aloha." -- from
"The Little Book Of Aloha"

THEATER OF THE BAR. What can actors and playwrights teach you about
hosting your customers - and keeping you happy while keeping them
happy? Plenty. Your bar is a stage, where you can apply the wisdom of
acting gurus like Stanislavski and dramatists like Lajos Egri. This
fun, interactive class will show you how. What worked for Marlon
Brando can work for you!
And much more....
