What you'll do

Ace, as the crazy Jack Spareribs, hosts an IMMERSIVE event beyond other Zoom experiences.

Perfect for private parties, team building or happy hour! Don't see a time listed? I'll add it if I can.

More than just another magic show... and unlike any other mixology class. It truly is an experience.

Can't get to the fun? I'll bring the fun to you! Join me here in my crazy tiki bar online.

You'll enter an cross between a tiki bar, a magic shop and a TGIFridays! Your host is a storytelling-bartender-magician-pirate... in an aloha shirt!

You'll participate in the magic as well as make it happen! ... It's the Voodoo that YOU do!

LEARN insane bar bets and tricks so YOU can be the life of YOUR parties!

You'll mix-along and make the original 1944 Trader Vic's Mai Tai, hear the intriguing story of its origins, and it's claim to fame.

Experience bar stunts and "betchas" YOU can do at home and maybe witness a little voodoo magic... then it all builds to an incredible finale you won't soon forget.

Along the way, you will discover that your host is sharing his lifelong experiences that shaped him into an internationally known performing pirate/magician. Visits at a very young age to the original Trader Vic's in Oakland, CA - living near a Don the Beachcomber and visits from an eccentric Great Uncle are inspiration for this Experience.

Also available... Magic & Oddities (no booze)!

Mr Spareribs was an amazing host! My partner and I were lucky enough to have picked a quieter time, and it ended up being a private show. But that meant some great conversations with Ace and a personalised experience. The show is great for both novices and experts in cocktail mixing. We know quite a bit about rum, but still learnt new things from Ace. He's developed some magic tricks that work well through Zoom, and has also engineered an amazing camera setup for a seamless experience. Highly recommend.

Ace‘s show was one of the best Airbnb experiences we have had so far. The show was extremely well prepared and he is very skilled in catering to and interacting with a digital audience. We had an incredible time and highly recommend his show to anyone who wants to have a light-hearted evening.

My team had a great time during this event. Ace was very entertaining and there was much more involved in the experience that we expected. We have attended other virtual cocktail making classes as well as virtual magic shows and this was a great mix of the two. I would recommend this for team bonding.

Captain Jack was absolutely brilliant and had many tales to tell, amazing magic tricks, and plenty of cocktail words of advice! Had a blast doing the experience alongside a friend who lives across the globe and we could share some laughs and cocktails together! Highly recommend it!

Amazing setup and video quality. I loved that I learned so much as Ace included the story behind his show, the tikki concept, the drinks, rums, etc. Super fun Host.
