Don’t get the wrong idea, all of the stuff we twist in a public place is G rated!
The guy in the pic was a customer at a restaurant in Bradenton, FL. We made him a really cool alligator balloon hat, and he is not a little kid anymore.
Of course, our priority when we twist is always the kids in the restaurant or event, but what do you do when the entire place is full of adults?
You entertain them, of course!
When I was a college kid twisting at the TGIF in Marlton NJ I would come in at 5PM, entertain the families until about 9 o’clock, then after a short break I’d twist cool stuff for the couples and drinkers until 11PM.
I made $800 twisting balloons in one week way back in 1997!
As a guy I find it easier to approach a table with the ladies, people like attention from the opposite gender as long as you do so in a respectful and fun way. If I see a group of ladies older than me I might go to their table and say:
“Hello beautiful ladies, they told me that this was the most out of control table in the entire restaurant, who would like to go to the Prom with me?”
If someone responds or laughs I ask her what her favorite color is then make her a simple flower bracelet. If you keep it innocent and fun (and the table is outgoing) most groups will go with it and include you in the party.
