Pretend it's 1826, you're inside the Metropolitan Hotel in New York City, trying not to stare at all the pretty wrists and ankles, when someone orders a cocktail and Jerry "The Professor" Thomas picks up his steel tumblers, lights the ingredients on fire, and streams the contents of Blue Blaze back and forth. You've just met the original "flairtender." Now, fast-forward past Manifest Destiny and women's rights to Flair Friday and the acrobatic flairtending of Jon Moss and Mike Tammaro, whose four arms slide, flip, and spin large bottles in juggling circles. Fireballs will be blown and cherries will be popped. The shows play at 30-minute intervals.
Fridays, 10 p.m., 2007
