SIX cool bar tricks that anyone can master.
As some of you regular Wise Bread readers know, I’m a big fan of bar tricks, friendly hustles and harmless wagers. Well, as we’re approaching the peak of partying season I thought it would be a good idea to share some of the newest, coolest bar tricks I’ve picked up. And these ones are really easy to learn, even my dear old mom could do them.
I found a site called easybartricks.com quite by accident and I was glued to it for over half an hour. I watched some of these videos over and over again to get the trick down cold.
Remember, no-one likes to be completely conned but these are all just a harmless bit of fun. Do it with your friends and co-workers and then let them in on the trick afterwards. They’ll be just as happy to learn the secret. You don’t even have to do any of these as a bet, they’re also great talking points when the conversation stalls.
What’s more, for you guys (and girls) looking for a way to break the ice with someone who catches your eye, magic tricks and bar bets are a nice easy way to get the conversation started. Enjoy.
