If you love great, new combinations of alcohol and food, here’s a great one for you – plus an awesome review of a new beer I finally got to try out!

Yesterday around noon, we had a business meeting with one of our clients.

We were going to barbecue, but it poured down rain in Dallas, so we decided to have a nice mixed bagel and cream cheese spread as we discussed some great marketing ideas.

This was to be an impromptu meeting that was upbeat and very casual. So, a few of us decided upon trying a new beer we hadn’t tried yet – Land Shark Island Lager (thanks, Kent).

St. Patty’s ’09

zoom_drunk.jpg

Where to go in NYC:

Start it off right with the annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade starting at 11:00 a.m. on 5th Avenue and 44th Street, heading up 5th Avenue to 86th St., where it turns east towards 3rd Avenue where it eventually ends there around 3:00 p.m.

For an original event, i suggest heading over to The Village Pour House -

The Uptown (982 Amsterdam) VPHouse will be playing true Hibernian music while offering drinks specials on pints of green beer, Guinness, car bombs and shot/brew combos. However, the name of the game is “limericks” such as, “There once was a man from Nantucket…” Well, some people forget these bawdy poems are actually named after a town in Ireland—so, to show love for St. Patrick’s Day, guests will be invited to recite their favorite rhyming ditty and receive a free green beer for their effort. Even sweeter, no cover to party at this 21+ event that starts at 7 p.m. 

 

For those of you in the “Downtown” area, don’t worry, their 11th st and third ave location (Village Pour House) will be featuring: green apple martinis, “Kiss Me I’m Irish” shots of, er, something green and of course…the infamous green beer. There’ll be a lucky leprechaun on hand for photo moments and also to provide one fortunate fella’ or female with his hidden “pot o’ gold” (please ask before you tear at his trousers) as well as a psychic who will see what’s to come…we’re no mediums, but when green brew is involved, it’s an easy prediction that bathroom visits will be in your near, near future. Party starts at 5 p.m. with no cover and runs until the break o’ dawn (or they close—whichever comes first).

Hit the Bottle to Live 4 years Longer

WinesHere’s a good excuse you shouldn’t quit drinking entirely. It has been found that a glass of wine every day means less chance of keeling over with an unstable ticker.

Dutch researchers found that those who drank on average less than a glass a day had a lower rate of cardiovasular death, with winos faring beetter than beer and spirit drinkers. Read the rest of this entry »

‘Single’ in the City

So its Valentines Day and you’re single.  Aside from drinking your depressed self into a stupor while alone in your apartment what can (SHOULD) you do?

If you’re in NY here are some options:

New York

Get warmed up at Tribeca Tavern (247 West Broadway b/w White & Walker) and shoot some pool while enjoying $3 domestic beer from 4 – 7pm.

Then head on over to the LES @ Label Lounge (174 Rivington b/w Clinton & Attorney) for “Lustr Saturdays” – Underground disco, featuring DJs Sushi Steve (Stereo-Type, Deprogram), Chris Alker (Stereo-Type, DUI, Deprogram) and M68 (Labor of Love). $4 beers and well drinks from 9-11 p.m.

Or maybe just spend your night @ the wonderful Town Tavern (134 W 3rd near MacDougal) for their “Cupid is Stupid” event.  For $20 enjoy a 2 hr top shelf open bar with complimentary “love potion” (I’m sure thats just some form of flavored chick shot) from 9-11pm and Hors d’Oeuvres.  Sexy bartenders IN COSTUME will be present.

To Beer or not to Beer?

Pint of beerWe don’t really know where this came from, but we assume that people who drink beer for water could be asking ‘How long can one live solely on beer’? Well, the answer is definitely not that simple. Conducting a research experiment on this, by feeding individuals simply beer, would be extremely unethical. However, we’re sure some of you would do that for free, but please, don’t!

There are a few facts though that could give us all a hint on whether or not this might be possible. Rather, how long it would take before you start throwing up parts of your liver. The story goes back to the Seven Years War of 1756-63, where physician to the English fleet, John Clephane, conducted this sort of clinical trial. Read the rest of this entry »

Liquid Smoking

Liquid SmokingA new drink called, Liquid Smoking is hitting the UK’s market shelves. Initially designed and launched in the Netherlands, Liquid Smoking might be the solution for smokers to actually give up smoking. It’s cheap, which is good, and on top of that it is meant to give a very good feeling of euphoria and relaxation, sort of like getting high legally! No age resrictions, recommended to people over 15 years old though. With a price around £2.00 and available in pubs and stores, it might be a good idea to go out there and ask for it. Who knows, quiting might not be that hard after all. We’re expecting to see it in the UK before Christmas. Let’s see how many of us are going to turn to this for our new year’s resolution… Read the rest of this entry »

Officials approve bar’s £10 “all you can drink” night

Pint of beerNovember, 2008
London, UK

Who else other than an Australian-themed bar in Acton, London, would take such a decision and move forward with what could be the start of an interesting ‘drinking’ era. One thing you could say about British people is that they surely know how to drink. A simple combo with our famous Australian friends and the party is on! Although, they tell us all measures are taken, and strict rules apply, we think the result will be somehow the same. Go to work, go to the pub, drink, drink, drink and then ask for directions on how to get back to your own place! For some of us, that’s surely the end of a ‘beautiful’ night, and the start of a horrific morning to work.

What’s even funnier is that the Ealing council has ruled that the Australian-themed bar in Acton is not encouraging irresponsible drinking with the cut-price deal. Yeah, right!!
