Sunday: Challenge the Bartender 7pm-9pm (see below)
Challenge the Bartender
The Cambridge Cocktail Weekend attracts a lot of the general public along who don’t know anything about flair bartending, so when they watch you on stage they won’t be able to understand 90% of what you are doing on stage, so we have come up with this Challenge to appeal more to the public and to get some flair fans in the venue, along with giving everyone involved the opportunity to win something.
This competition is open to ANYONE. Those that were in the original competition and any bartenders that just want to come down for the Sunday.
We will have FIVE Challenges
It is £5 to enter each challenge
Winner takes all in each challenge
The Challenges are as follows
Over the Shoulder
During this challenge each bartender will be required to throw the bottle over their shoulder to a stall. Each bartender will have ONE go, starting with one spin. If you miss the move you are out. Then whoever is left will move onto two spins and then we continue until we have a winner.
Each bartender will have 3 attempts to get as many bumps over those three attempts. So if you get 10 bumps on each attempt you will have 30 overall. Any of the 3 main bumps can be used. Forearm Bump, Elbow Bump, Reverse Forearm Bump.
3. Audience vs Bartenders
Audience members will call out different ideas for places to stall / balance a bottle. Any bartender can step up and try to hit this stall. There will be a time limit of 1 minute per bartender to try and hit this stall. The audience member that chooses the stall must also put in £5. If the bartenders don’t land the stall the audience members gets the money.
5. Big Ass Move
Just like a normal BAM competition, each bartender will have 3 attempts to land their biggest move. You will be judged by the audience reaction and the judges scores our of 10. It is all about Goosebumps. Show us a move that is entertaining and amazing! NO SEQUENCES!
