Standing Ovations: John Gertsen brought Bartending to TED Talks...

Hy's Tom Collins Mix

Year ago, I visited a bar in Boston. Park No. 9. And, all of a sudden, I had one of this very rare 110% nights in a bar. John Gertsen was behind the bar and mixed me the best Jack Rose I have had in my life. His drinks made me speechless. But seeing him bar tending this crowded bar made me even more speechless.

John changed his working place. He opened a bar called DRINK at Forth Point in Boston. -> DRINK
So I meet him at Cocktail & Spirits Paris and saw his amazing talk and had an amazing time with him again.

Great Guy!

And now, he made me speechless again. TED Talks to me is one of the greatest places on the Web and now, he is the first Bartender, I have ever seen doing a TEDx Talk.

Well Done John, spread the love!
