TGI Friday’s is enjoying a double celebration. Not only is the restaurant chain celebrating its 25th birthday, but two days ago its bartenders broke the Guinness World Record for Most People in a Simultaneous Cocktail Flair.

To break the record, 101 of TGI Friday’s professional bartenders simultaneously performed a bar flair routine, without dropping a bottle, for more than two minutes.
