BarSmarts Expands Its Reach

Beginning in April, BarSmarts Advanced will travel to Seattle, Orlando, Fla., New Orleans and Washington, D.C., to provide bartenders with training, education and a certification program. BarSmarts Advanced, from Pernod Ricard USA and BAR LLC, targets bartenders in major markets who are committed to the profession. It is delivered to a select audience in these markets through a kit that includes DVDs, a workbook, mixology equipment and sample certification tests.

The program culminates with BarSmarts Live, a full-day event for top performers.

The Spring 2010 BarSmarts Live schedule:
· Seattle – April 27
· Washington – April 29
· Orlando – May 10
· New Orleans – May 12

Additionally, the BarSmarts Wired online program, open to any bartender with interest in the industry, is available until April 30 at www.barsmarts.com.
