Weekly Roundup! | 2017-11-03 -Lars Roschman
Whether you’re a past, present, or a future hopeful guest, we at PartyBookers Budapest are pleased to announce a weekly rundown of the bar crawl shenanigans that ensued.
For those who are unfortunate enough to not know of the best bar crawl in the party capital of Europe – allow me to open your mind to a new world of bar crawls. Everyone loves drinking games to wet the throats and stimulate the brain (I think alcohol stimulates the brain? It must be good somehow. I think I read somewhere it does, but I don’t remember, I was drunk.) Its standard etiquette we all live by. However, we’ve turned the entire bar crawl into a drinking game. The perfect marriage for drinking, right!? The Idea of the game is to do as many fun, friendly, crazy and embarrassing challenges as you can over three bars. The more challenges you do, the more prizes you win. So if you want more free shots, or memorable t-shirts or even a free all you can drink Boat Party – get crazy and go hard.
As usual, this week’s bar crawls started off in the best way possible – the option of 1 hour of unlimited beer, wine and sangria. And we mean unlimited. With open access to the world's best social lubricant, coupled with staff encouraging you to do the drunk, crazy things you don’t want your parents to know about, it can only result in good times (if you remember them). Once the hour is up, do not panic, free shots are given at every place we visit, we can’t have you going sober now can we! As the nature of the crawl is to get everyone interacting and on a favourable point of the scale of intoxication, it’s bound to get messy and crazy.
You learn a lot about yourself and the world when you travel, we all know the feeling, it’s eye opening. And part of the experience is partying with strangers and having a great time. Partying while travelling will teach you lessons. And few lessons were definitely learnt this week.
For example, when you are finishing a drink while doing a handstand (challenge 92), take note of where you’ve put your phone. Our British friend made a perfect landing on his screen and shattered it – 3/10 for execution, 10/10 for stupidity. The colour drained from his face faster than he downed his drink that’s for sure! But well done for completing the challenge.
I learnt a personal lesson. That each person responds differently when someone jokes about how drunk they are. From experience, a typical response is a quick denial (sometimes drunkenly slurred) followed by a swift one fingered salute. A rather new response was witnessed when one of the sheilas on the crawl yelled ‘if I was drunk, would I be able to piggyback?’, while running at her friend and attempting to execute said piggyback. I had two problems with this. Firstly, how would getting your friend to transport you on her back prove you’re not drunk? I love alcohol fuelled logic. Secondly, they both STACKED IT, and I wasn’t allowed to laugh until I made sure they were both fine. They were, but I think the dignity took a solid hit, which they recovered from 5 minutes later with a free shot. Keep on gaming!
Onto some positives. Well done to the two crazy cats who finished their 25 challenges and subsequently winning bingo. Both champions finished in style – with markings on their face, drinks in their belly, and no recollection of how the night ended. Standard. A big shout out for all the staff, working or not, for showing up fully decked out in dope Halloween attire and face paint. I felt slightly sorry for some of the guests with challenge 99 (lick a staff members face and say it tastes like daddy’s semen) as they may have had to lap up some fake blood and face paint, however it’s nothing a quick chaser won’t solve. And lastly, well done bingo-ers for listening to us and not being too loud on the streets. We’ve gone another week without angry old ladies yelling at us from their window, so that's a plus. Granted that's probably because it's cold as hell and their windows are all closed, but it’s always nice to respect the locals and the country you’re partying in.
I hope that you all have enjoyed reading and reminiscing about your own bingo crawls – or for you bingo babies, you’re looking forward to your own upcoming night of calamity. Stay tuned for next week’s edition of winter madness and guaranteed crazier stories of our favourite bar crawl.
