It may not be an Olympic sport, but extreme bartending is gaining popularity as a spectator sport.


Extreme bartending, also called flair bartending, is where the bartender puts on a show while mixing drinks and dazzles the crowd with juggling-like skills.


Dave Simpson teaches seminars with a company called www.ExtremeBartending.com  and is organizing a competition at McCulloch Station Jan. 22, starting at 8 p.m.


“We travel around the world and teach people how to flip bottle s and do things behind the bar,” said Simpson.  “It’s really starting to grow, so we decided to have a competition here.”


The competitors will be broken down into rookie and advance categories, with participants judged on spillage, droppage, breakage and crowd interaction.


Tickets for the event are $3 each and can be purchased at McCulloch Station on KLO Road or Splashes in downtown Kelowna.
