Let’s face it; we all want to jazz up our dinner parties. So, what better way than to do this with some amazing bar tricks? They are sure to enthral and enrapture your guests! You can make this as simple or as complex as you like. Of course, for novices, it may be wise to keep it simple. After all, you don’t want to waste your wine, gin or preferred tipple. It’s all about making this look smooth. It’s a great way to add a little more bang to your dinner party.
So, let’s take a look at some great bar tricks you can try at your next soiree.
The Delicate Balance
This is a great one to try for those that have never done bar tricks before. Bet your pals that you can balance forks on the ends of glasses. The best kind of glass to use is a pint glass. That way, you will be able to make sure that your glasses have enough depth to them. All you need is two forks, a pint glass and some matches. Make sure the tongs of the forks are placed at the side of the matches. Then, set the matches along the fork on to the edge of the glass. It’s a sneaky trick to do as you’re not technically placing or balancing the forks on the glass. But, it does create an illusion that you are doing so. It’s fun, and it looks kind of cool too!
The Napkin Knot
If you are somewhat more confident with your tricks and magic skills, this can be a good one to impress your guests with. Just get a bog standard napkin. Of course, only cloth will do for a refined dinner party. Now, tell your guests that you can tie a knot in it. This may sound simple, but there is a catch: you cannot let go of the sides of the cloth napkin!
The knack to completing this trick is to make sure that you fold your arms and pick up the corners of the napkin while your arms are folded. Then, ensure that you unfold your arms, taking the napkin with you. Simply drop your arms and voila! That way, a knot is forced without the need for you to touch any other part of the cloth!
The Ultimate Square Challenge
Taking a set of matches, position them into five squares. Now, bet your friends that they can’t turn this set of five squares into a set of four, by only moving two matchsticks. It sounds complex, and you’ll have hours of fun watching them squirm. The trick, of course, is to move the bottom right and left matches to create a zigzag based pattern instead.
Forget the Bottle Opener: It’s All About Newspaper Openers
Okay, hands up if you have used anything but a bottle opener to take the top of a beer? Now, you can open your beer using paper. Yes, really. Everyone will say that you can’t. But, there is a knack. Make sure that you roll the paper into a roll. Then, flatten it and bend it in half. By creating a sturdier piece of paper, you can simply remove the top of the beer bottle. It’s one of the finest and most fun bar tricks ever!
