Got my lawn chair and a six pack of Amber Bock (A fine drink ) to watch the invasion. I was hoping I didn't miss much since my internet has crapped out- but I have! The drunkin' invasion reminiscent of the Vikings has turned into a battle of the sexes!

Though I can't support the enslavement of one sex or another, and will fight against it..... I do like anarchy!

So I'll still raise my glass to you, the invaders (who can hold a tune)!

And to the defenders of the boards!

Am I hedging my bets? oh hell yeah!!

Long live the invasion, and the firebrands Diorama and Mocassin. Long live the brave defenders CD, Voyd and the rest. Long live my lazy ass.

About the inquiries:
Well, Diorama, my name is stupid. It makes no sense to anybody but me really- but it hasn't ever been taken, so it is original-ish. Also, thanks for the offer but I have somebody waiting for me (and with luck I'll see her soon *I hope*).

More specific drinking places for alcohol? I am currently abroad, so I can dig some up for you. How specific? I generally don't drink all the time and stick to a small range of beers, but maybe this info will be helpful:

In St. Petes, there are many bars advertising cheap alcohol- about $0.65. They and their signs are everywhere- If you are eating at a restaurant, a strong recommendation is to buy beer instead of bottled water (only buy and drink the bottled sort in Russia), unless you need to rehydrate. Actually beer is usually the cheapest beverage on the menu.

There is a wide selection of alcohol (of course) and Russia has the most wide ranging variations of fruit juice I have experienced, which are good for chasers or for mixed drinks. There is a honey beer called medovoye, which is found in the Northern Climes that is cheap 1.5 liters for $0.90, and has an alcohol volume of 7.8% (and tastes...um..intersting). Baltika is a line of beers that is found everywhere, though the quality overall has slipped. Baltika is the most popular and it makes both light and dark beers of various strengths. "Stepan Razin" (average quality) is very cheap in St. Petes and in Volgograd there is another mediocre beer called Volzhanin. Volzhanin and Stepan is almost as cheap as a comparable amount of water. A bottle from a store will be about 0.30 for Stepan and Volzhanin, Baltika is about 0.40. The value is getting the 1.5 and 2 liter plastic bottles- something that is sorely lacking in college campuses in the US.

Of the powerful beers (ones that hit you good after a couple), I recommend Klinskoye Redkoye, Baltika 9, Yarpivo, and a good bet would be anything that says krepkoye (strong). They are more expensive about 45-60 cents US but good deals can be had- especially in the suburbs, and in large outdoor markets. Large western-style supermarkets are pretty good too. Dark beers are called tyomnoye and light beers are called svetloye. Other popular beers (which I haven't tried) would be ochakovo, okhota, siberian crown, tinkof, well anything really- people like their beer.

The strong and dark beers are also a bit more expensive, like an additional 6 to 15 cents per small bottle. Also buy them in cans- they seem to taste fresher- though it might just be me.

Well hope that was more of a help. Take care.

Talking

The Czech make some DAMN GOOD BEER. The best beer I've ever had yet (and I don't even love beer) was 20-proof PRIMÁTOR 24° Double.

Be sure to try a bottle of it if you are in Czech.


Also, Budweiser was originally a Czech beer. When some Americans took it over, they changed the recipe (prolly to make it cheaper?) and f*ct it up so it tastes like shyt here now. BUT, the Czech recently started cranking out the ol' OG recipe stuff back there again (not allowed to import it into the States, tho) and so the Czech "classic" Budweiser is actually supposed to be really good now! So, y'all might want to try that outta curiosity as well...

And, if you are in Amsterdam or Prague, you must also try a shot of the mythical green absinthe (wormwood).

I stayed in a hostel in Rome that was across the street from the Termini Station, so we always bout beer at the store there.

1 euro a liter. We (a group of about 10 people from the hostel) would fill up about four or five backpacks with 20 some liters of beer and head out to the Coloseum or Spanish Steps or Trevi Fountain and hang out. Ah, good times, good times.

I'll have to be a loser and root for my home town as far as drink prices for the states.

I think TP would agree that drinking in Nevada can be dirt cheap if ya play it right. I know its nothing compared to many countries, but compared to other places in the states, its pretty fucking cheap.

Here in Reno I can get drunk on 6 or 7 bucks easy, and thats always a plus

I did that on a kibbutz in Israel. I went into the general store to buy some vodka to mix with orange juice. Everything was written in Hebrew, so I just located a clear colored liquor, figured that was it, and bought it.

Got home and...ugh! Uzo...

Let me tell you, that does NOT mix well with orange juice...nor with anything else I could find! Bleh!!!

OK, the cheapest i've ever drank is for free in new orleans.



there are all these outdoor margarita / novelty drink vendors, but the one catch is that people aren't allowed to bring outside drinks into bars (you can drink on the street all you want) so i would go to a novelty drink stand, wait for some touron to buy a $10 margarita, take one sip, set it down and go into a bar, then ditch the straw and drink from the cup.

there were times when there would literally be 10 100% full drinks sitting outside bars just waiting for little ole me to come along and gulp 'em down.
