Early. I'm always early for flights. That's why I'm very well accustomed to airport pubs. They look like pubs but they don't smell like pubs. They're not in buildings. They are just corners of airports painted to look like pubs.


They are one of the few places where it's entirely appropriate to serve alcohol at 4am.

if they are not real pubs does that mean that there is no shady booth in the corner?

Not in an airport, it's all too clear to have a shady booth. Still we can gather round a table and pretend its a shady booth. Shall we do that?

Snuggles in between the friendly travellers, bringing a tray of drinks for everyone.


Pretends to sip wine. Fails miserably. Heads back to the bar for a refill.

Irish coffee sounds good. :G11:

The best fake pub I ever found was in a museum in Berlin, back when it was West Berlin. I mean, a museum visit that ends with Berliner Weisse can't be bad...
Still hoping for a tinfoil hat smiley.

My recipe for the Gargleblaster is equal measures of gin, Galliano and Lemon Juice. This is also known as a Milano cocktail. The Galliano is the gold, the gin is the brick and the lemon is, well, the lemon.

A certain other researcher whose anonymity I will preserve here will vouch for the efficacy of this combination.

*hic*

Had some gin and lemons, bought some Galliano and, while tasting a bit too sweet, it's a quite potent mix...

*hic*

Gin has never given me a hang-over before, but I'm having serious doubts about this specific mixture.
