Posted:Calling all contact staffers, i need some help, and this is not actually about contact staffing but probably the best place I could post this.

As some of you know I do Bar flairing (for those who dont its the whole cocktail bottle spinning etc) and I've been trying to work on some new moves that are a bit different and I can do a small amount of contact staff so I thought I'd try and incorporate a few moves from the whole poi/staff side of things, including managing to do flowers with 2 bottles biggrin, but anyway, I would like to know peoples opinion on if its possible and therefore worth me devoting my time to trying to learn some contact moves, mainly halo rolls and the likes using a Galliano bottle.

Obviously I can have it empty or full or half full or whatever, was just curious if you brainier people thought something good could come out of experimenting with it, so I thought I'd ask the pro's biggrin.

The actual galliano bottle is almost about 2 foot long so its quite long (for a bottle) however I'm not sure if it's going to be too short, also the sloping curve of the glass may not help.

Any feedback and advice would be greatly appreciated

Posted:fish tails would be very interesting as every time you tiped the bottle toward the spout you could pour a shot, thus if you were asked for 5 shots you could do fishtails to serve each one (maybe.........)

Posted:having just had a play with a half full bottle of vodka id say that anything that involves rolling is doomed because unless u have it perfectly balenced the bottle starts to tip and it starts spinning.

spinning is the way forward, the best i managed was one and a half fishtails with a painful exit to the shin. hows everyone else coming?

Posted:smaller bottles are easier u get less sloshing effect, if its spinning its controlled but if its rolling you must be a jedi master to pull it off
