    I had to look up "ASMR" and as best I can tell it's the same thing as horripilation, but I don't care about that. I'm just wondering, are these supposed to be instructional videos? Or is this sort of a visual catalogue of bartending styles? Whatevs, kinda neat.

    It’s not just their style- if you go to the Absolut website, they have videos on how to make all sorts of different drinks and the bartender in those uses a very similar style.

    I never actually learned to play very well
    I had to look it up too. Never heard of it. But that video is kind of fascinating to watch. I’d feel guilty tipping one of those bartenders less than $5. Maybe $10. ;)

    Nope. Don't care about ceremony.

    Now, if you want good service, go to Boston! The official catch phrase of Bostonian bartenders and wait staff is "You all set?".

    You can get a drink and within less than a minute SOMEBODY will run by you and say "You all set? You guys all set?".

    They are on top of it!

    Don't put on a show. Put a drink in my hand. ;)

    That's funny, when I was in Boston just a couple weeks back, the first thing I thought was, "this seems like a great place to find a bar"
