Though the "noble experiment" of Prohibition failed, other noble experiments, such as teaching horses how to shoot guns and giving suffrage to any horse that could shoot a gun, were huge successes. Celebrate the failure of the 18th Amendment with this Groupon.
$125 for an All-Day Deluxe Mixology Course (Up to $315 Value)
Intensive deluxe mixology courses are held at the Queen’s Head Pub on the Harvard campus from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. most Sundays and with limited availability on Saturdays. Weekday courses are available upon special request.
During courses, a professional bartender leads more than three hours of TIPS intervention and safety training—an essential skill for bartenders—as well as nearly six hours of hands-on mixology training. Burgeoning shakers and stirrers learn to set up bars and make basic, eye-catching drinks. To commemorate their day, students get a T-shirt and book. Though the class certifies students in TIPS, it is not a vocational certification or a license to practice medicine.
Though Harvard Bartending Course offers discounted prices to students, this Groupon still represents the best deal.
