Practice makes perfect.

But if nobody is perfect then why the hell practice?

Practice is what you do when you are all by yourself.

Rehearsal is what you practice for.

You've stumbled upon a door where your mind is the key. There are none who will lend you guidance; these trials are yours to conquer alone. Entering here will take more than mere logic and strategy, but the criteria are just as hidden as what they reveal. Find yourself, and you will find the very thing hidden behind this page. Beyond here is something like a utopia - beyond here is What?

I'm a Barsmartie.

Hello my newest BarSmarts Graduates~

It brings me great pleasure to inform you that you have PASSED the BarSmarts Advanced course! Nice Work!!! We truly appreciate the time and effort you put into studying, shaking, stressing, sweating and finally PASSING the course. We will be in touch with you in the coming weeks regarding member benefits, but in the meantime, fill two shakers with ice, some Beefeater, a little vermouth, hold one in each hand and start jumping up & down in celebration of your newest accomplishment.

Congrats again, enjoy the weekend~


Dale DeGroff and Ricky Gomez were my judges on my practical exam. I am happy to say I've made Dale a drink.

I can't believe I tried to pass this up. Promo snafu's aside, this was an amazing time. The professional class of Seattle, and the west coast, all at the same place at the same time.

I took a series of photos of the items being passed around and wanted to share.
