Troika Bar

The Troika Bar (in Little Lonsdale St.; the site of this evening's weblogger meetup) is not a bad place to go. Industrial-design magazines on the magazine racks, Hoegaarden and Leffe Blond at the bar, and some pretty nifty artworks, including a sculpture of glowing valves (of the sort found in ancient electronic equipment).
(I had a photo of the latter, but it didn't come out.)

I'll probably have a hangover tomorrow morning. Still, it's not an uncommon occurrence after a blogmeet. (I.e., an excuse for people, most of whom have weblogs or something vaguely bloglike, to get together, talk about things (sometimes related to blogging/noomeeja, often not) and drink merrily.

Current Mood:
inebriated

Re: hangover?
3 bottles. 2 Leffe Blond, and 1 Hoegaarden.

At time of writing, I've only got a slight headache; much what I had in the wee small hours of last night.

Three bottles of reinheitsgebot beer? Pfft. Most males won't get a hangover from that!

I guess it depends on how you define "hungover".

Well, it's not a bad hangover avoidance strategy, drinking flash beer - they're reasonably clean, and you'll run out of cash before you get too far.

The spirits is what gets me in trouble, I find. Umm. I'll probably turn into a red wine fiend, eventually.

These days I generally take the advice against mixing types of drinks. Unless the place has Leffe and can make a decent Toblerone.

You've gotta try the Leffe on tap at Cookie. It's better than the blonde. Hmmm... thinking about it makes me wanna go get one now (except that I'm in my pyjamas). -cnwb
