Finish 3 Beers Before Your Friend Finishes 3 Shots

Mon, Jan 17, 2011

6 Comments

Ok, so the title is a little misleading as unless you’re friend can’t take shots and you can chug beer like it’s your job, then there’s most likely no way you’re going to be able to finish 3 beers before your friend can take 3 shots. This is actually more of a bar trick than actually doing it.

The Setup: First bet your friend that you think you can drink 3 full glasses of beer (must be pint glasses) before he/she can finish 3 shots. The only rules are that you are not allowed to touch each others glasses/shots and they must wait to take the first shot after you’ve finished with your first glass of beer.

The Trick: Take your time drinking your first beer, your buddy can’t take their first shot until it’s gone anyways so there’s no rush… Once you finish the beer take your pint glass and turn it over, upside down, over top of your friend’s last shot glass… since the rules state that you cannot touch each others glasses you win since he won’t be able to take the last shot due to the fact that he can’t get to it without touching your glass…

Make it interesting and bet the round of drinks on the trick.

Turn Old Beer Bottles Into Drinking Glasses

Wed, Jan 12, 2011

2 Comments

If you’re looking for a unique way to stock your cabinets with drinking glasses and don’t want to spend a lot of money… and you want to get drunk on top of it, then this trick is for you.

It’s extremely simple to do if you have the right tools, those tools being the following: a piece of string, an empty beer bottle, nail polish remover, a lighter, sandpaper and a sink/bucket full of cold water.

What you’re going to do is take a string and tie it around the bottle where you want to cut it, do this before you soak it so that you can get the correct fit. Next you’ll soak the string in the nail polish remover and place it around the bottle. Light the string with the lighter and pick up the bottle, slowly rotate it around in a circle like you see in the video above. After 30 or so seconds, dunk the top of the bottle into the water and the glass should “pop” from the sudden change in temperature, thus breaking the bottom at it’s weakest point, the place you just heated up.

Before you use your new glass to drink out of you’re going to want to sand down the top edges so you don’t cut yourself when drinking out of them. The video above doesn’t show the sanding part, but hopefully you’re smart enough to know that you’ll cut the hell out of your face if you try to drink out of the freshly broken bottle.

This trick also works with wine bottles (or any bottle really), so if you want to do something creative with those this will work also, although it may require a bit longer burn on the string to heat the bottle a bit more.

Open A Wine Bottle Without A Corkscrew. Tree Version

Have you ever found yourself out in the middle of the woods with a bottle of wine and a glass, but no cork screw? If that sounds like a situation you could possibly find yourself in then this trick is for you.

Essentially all you need to open a wine bottle is a towel, or something to wrap around the bottle so you can get a good grip, and a tree. Just wrap the towel around the bottle and gently, but firmly, hit the bottom of the bottle against the tree and the cork will slowly being to pop itself out. Sure it’ll appear as though you’re giving the tree a hand job, but once it’s done you can finally enjoy that nice glass of wine you’ve been waiting for.

Looking for a new bar to check out this week, well you’re in luck as the owners of the popular bar Bull & Bear are opening their new venture, Public House, Thursday January 13, 2011. Located at 400 N. State St. in Chicago’s River North area, this 10,000 sq. ft. bar/restaurant hosts some of the latest in beer/liquor dispensing technology. Not only do they have 25 beers on tap plus their own Public House brew thanks to Goose Island, they also claim to have over 100 different types of beer in general for you to enjoy. And the best part is, for most of them you don’t even have to leave the table.

With 12 table tap booths spread throughout the bar, you and your guests can order your favorite beers without even having to leave the table. And unlike other places that have table taps, Public House’s taps will also dispense liquor. Drinks are charged by the ounce and servers must approve you for up to 24 ounces before you can begin to pour. Once you hit the 24 ounce limit you will need to request the waitress to re-enable the tap, but only if she deems that are you not too intoxicated. Each table tap is also outfitted with an LED screen which will tell you exactly how many ounces you’ve had to drink. It seems like a pretty cool system for those who get annoyed with slow service.

Aside from the novelty of the table taps, Public House also offers up a great place to watch the game. With 27 plasma TV’s spread throughout as well as one 84″ HD Wall, you’re sure to have a good view of the game from every seat in the house. And if you’re looking to throw a private party, the elevated private room boasts 1000 sq. ft. of space as well as the latest in Wall Tender technology. So what are you waiting for, get your friends together and hit up Public House this Thursday, January 13, 2011, for the grand opening. There will be celebrities and promotions going on all weekend so stop on in or check after the jump for a rundown of what you can expect for the grand opening.
