  • Afraid I'm merely a pale shadow of my former self. Highlights over the past month have been:three pints of high-alc craft beer one night at Brew Dogs, with fish and chips (execrable) , and bangers and mash (acceptable),six pints of Asahi brew and a no-name whisky at a Nepalese restaurant that foolishly advertises a 90' all-you-can-drink-for-$10 ...

    Snoothrank:
