A little different version of "flair bartending"! Gotta love the part about the cherries being flung everywhere.

At first I was put off. "What?! You can't replace a good bartender with a robot!" But then I realized they're not trying to. It's just for fun. So if I order something tropical, is it going to say "You want what? Order yourself a drink for a man, you girl!" Haha

Here is my favorite robot bartender.


Who wants to party with the Drink-bot?

When I first read this post not only was I cracking up and thinking of all of the whole "Flair Bartending" thread, this is next after flair ruins Mixology, but that I had just attended a holiday party of a friend of mine who BUILDS ROBOTS!

He has been a part of BATTLE BOTS and ROBOT WARS for years!
I even got to go with him one year when the show was filmed on Treasure Island in San Francisco.

I sent him the link since I though it was pretty funny and told him when he gets tired of smashing robots with robots maybe there's a future in this.....turns out he replied it was a good friend of his who built the winning Bartending Robot!

My friends Simone and Dave are the builders of the beast in question that won best server. This is why they weren't at the party, they were out of the country.
