Taking bartending to the next level, Danilo Oribe has defied gravity with his flair bartending skills over the last 15 years. Originally from Uruguay, Oribe has participated in over 100 flair bartending competitions all over the world, and has more than 50 first place finishes. Now, Oribe has decided to expand his passion and collaborate with the Marketing Project and GameWorks to host a Cocktails and Flair Bartending Championship in Las Vegas.
The competition will be held on January 29 and 30th at GameWorks Las Vegas, located in Town Square. Anyone from experienced bartenders to the general public, and even children, can join in on all the fun and excitement starting at 8p.m. Night one will be the qualification round for the 20 to 25 professional and semi-professional competitors. Night two will consist of the qualifying eight bartenders competing for the grand prize of $2,000.
The Marketing Project has provided social media marketing and reached out to current flair bartenders, the local Vegas community and people all over the country, and even attendees from Europe will be attending the event. When asked about why the collaboration with GameWorks was the best fit Oribe said “they have everything we need, the venue will help accommodate the huge crowds flair bartending competitions bring,” and in return more people will get to know GameWorks and the attractions offered.
This all goes back to the principle of power of community, and the connections the Marketing Project is able attain through social media platforms. The end goal is to keep working on making this flair bartending event better and bigger in the hopes of eventually bringing more of these competitions to people in other GameWorks across the country.
