Big Drinks This Weekend

You wouldn't think I'd be into communal drinks, what with the possibility of contracting mouth herpes and all.

Das Boot:
I'm actually breaking the rules by drinking this with the toe pointing down, but that's how I roll. I'm a rule-breaker.

The Largest Margarita, Evar:

The verdict: too much salt on the rim.

Alcohol is a disinfectant, no herpes to worry about.

That "too much salt" picture is hilarious.

Seriously, I'm still chuckling!

ok - big breath... I've stopped now. But still: funny.

No explanation as to why the giant drinks???

"that's how I roll?"

I love your white-boy-Minnesota appropriation of jive talk.

Too much salt=DEMON RED EYES

Too funny! Dan - I love your blog! And guess what? Last night I dreamt about you!

Picture #1 was celebrating beer at Octoberfest at Gasthoff's in Northeast Minneapolis. The Boot is filled with nasty German beer which is passed around the group and never touches the table. There are other random rules as well. Sometimes, when too many boots have already been drank, it gets passed around with random strangers as well, or even the entire bar.

Picture #2 is at my friend's Wine-O party. I'm not sure of its purpose, but it got passed around plenty. There was also Boone's Farm at that party. It was real classy like that.

What's the yellowy wierdness floating around in the beer? I figured they were lemons...but they're kinda biggish looking.

awesome blog, v. v. funny. have a great day!

That's strange - I dreamt about Dan last night too. Except by the end of the dream he was stalking me, wearing khaki pants that were pulled up way too high.

Wow that beer looks really really turbid. I wonder how many different strains of candida were growing in it before you got a swig.

By Blogger Adam, at 1:49 PM  

ummm, what evening were you at the Gasthoff Octoberfest? The guy with his back to you looks like a buddy of mine and i thought i had seen you there.

I dream about margaritas that big...but not the community sharing.

By Blogger Elle Marie, at 3:55 PM  

Um, I don't know if anyone's ever told you, but you are showing signs of alcoholism.

Call to action. Stop the Republican Party.

By Anonymous Anonymous, at 10:53 PM

So are you a shorter guy?

I'm asking only because you seem to throw out that left arm as counter ballast to the heavy drink in your right.

BTW - heart everything about your blog.

By Anonymous Anonymous, at 2:03 PM  

Yes I am shorter than some, and yes I do think the arm was probably a subconscious counter balance.

I could never be an alcoholic. I have a problem with the hangovers.

The yellowy floaters were indeed lemons. The beer was a Heffeweissen (or whatever) so it was naturally turbid, but I wouldn't be surprised if there was some other stuff floatin around in there.

Gasthoff's was last Friday night.

By Blogger dan, at 2:15 PM  

I too thought the counter balance arm was amusing, at first I thought it was a 'Look at me, I drink big drink, I am truly a man!!!' but then I thought maybe Dan is doing his best impression of a teapot!!! Do you know that song?...'I'm a little teapot, short and stout, here is my handle here is my spout'...

By Anonymous Bubba, at 9:09 PM  

Cool pics! But I'm wondering if those large drinks are contributing to the panch! Watch out!

By Anonymous Anonymous, at 10:37 PM  

I knew I'd run into PlanetDan eventually. Didn't think it would be so soon (only be reading for a couple months). Though, I knew it wouldn't ever be at one of the "BEST. SHOW. EVAR." concerts.

BTW: You're not THAT short. The guy behind you is 6'3" or 6'4" and I am probably standing behind him, and I'm siz foot on the nose.

By Anonymous Anonymous, at 3:10 PM  

You are so clever Dan -- don't know how I happened upon your site, but you made my day with your quips !

By Anonymous Anonymous, at 6:26 PM  

I'm 5'7". People over 6' look like giants to me.

Why didn't you say hi?

By Blogger dan, at 11:53 PM  

I had seen you earlier but wasn't sure since I had already had 2 Warsteiners(SP) and my share of apple cider schnapps or whatever they pour.

Downstairs I did not see you in that photographically documented moment while you were mid-swill. I hope you flicked.

I don't doubt our paths will cross once again. I also live in S MPLS and have participated in many events and frequented bars that you have documented.

I'll have to remember a sharpie next time for your autograph.

By Anonymous Anonymous, at 2:43 PM  

Just curious, was that a Gordon Biersch Brewing party? I have seen that giant boot before.
