Throughout our country's history, the local bartender has acted as neighborhood therapist, weekend party planner, and—during a brief period of anarchy in 1871—the King of Florida. Reign supreme behind the bar with today's Groupon to Raleigh Bartending School. Choose between the following options:
- For $75, you get a four-hour mixology class (a $150 value).
- For $199, you get a 40-hour bartending-certification course (a $799 value).
The professional instructors at Raleigh Bartending School eagerly impart their pouring wisdom on casual learners and up-and-coming barkeeps. A four-hour mixology class gives pupils a taste of the tricks and techniques needed for successful liquid slinging in a fun, hands-on environment. The full certification course prepares students to serve alcohol responsibly, maximize tip revenue, and identify and halt bar-joke set-ups before they come to earth-rending fruition. After watching demonstrations from professional instructors, students build their bar-cred with hands-on experience, learning hundreds of cocktail recipes, business skills, and bar setup. After completing an intensive 40-hour course, graduates earn the legal ability to serve alcohol for fun and profit and gain access to the school's job-placement program, as well as the right to serve as official judicator for all small-claims bar bets. Classes operate on a flexible schedule based around student availability.
