    casek bro

    dont do it man

    my ex went to one of those things ... and when she got out hardly anyone would hire her because they preffered people with actual bartneding experience or someone that doesn't know shit

    most bars all have their own way of doing things anyhows ... they're train you themselves

    all the drinks you learn how to make are pointless anyhows man, 90% of the time at a bar ... people are going to ask for a jack n coke ... vodka n cran ... or a beer

    you hardly need to know ANY of those drinks

    seriously man ... give me $750 and i can teach you more about bartending than they ever will !!!

    yeah, you should look into 'dive' bars.
    some of them dont require any knowledge
    about it, they will train you. Then, from there,
    you can move it on up, like The Jeffersons!

    yeah, dropping $750 on these fools seems outrageous but they have job placement and they've been around since '78 with no complaints to the better business bureau, etc...i researched it a little. i think i'm going to get in touch with some of their graduates.

    bartending schools idea of job placement is giving you a peice of paper with all the bars in town and telling you to go find a job

    you know what would be best

    finding a small quiet bar that wouldn't mind hiring you
    learn there ... thats all the experience you'll need to get a solid job at a better bar
