Shout House bartender poised to break Guinness record


Shout House bartender Chris Raph plans to make a new Guinness record by pouring nearly 10 drinks per minute for 60 minutes straight--will the crowd get to drink the evidence?

Here are the details:

Under the scrutiny of an official Guinness Book of World Records Adjudicator, Shout House Dueling Pianos bartender Chris Raph is poised to officially overtake the current world record for most cocktails prepared in 60 minutes. Based on time trials, Raph is expected to pour a minimum of 500 cocktails, shattering the current world record of 389 set by Matthais Knorr of Munich, Germany.

An admission cost of $4 per person will be charged at the door, which will be donated directly to the local charity Finnegans Community Fund.
