Nights out can definitely be expensive, especially between a large group of people, but only THREE men have managed to rack up a huge £500 ($650) bill from a pub, must’ve been a good night ay?
The Fat Badger in Harrogate, Yorkshire, shared it’s ‘Bill of the Week’ totalling £519.75 after the three men popped in one afternoon, obviously spending as long as possible at the venue, drinking the day away.
The 85 shots of Jägermeister and Red Bull cost a whopping £340 ($441) and it didn’t stop their.. the men also drank their way through six pints of Guinness, four gins, three shots of sambuca, three glasses of wine, one pint of beer and a double tequila shot. Interesting.
Safe to say they were above the NHS guidelines of 14 units per week.
The alcohol was the calorific equivalent of 50 burgers, a huge 14,513 calories.
Andy Caine, one of the men, says they began their day elsewhere where they had absinthe, so just add that to the list. Then, after leaving The Fat Badger, which ran out of Jägermeister, they went on elsewhere.
Andy aslo revealed he had a ‘lion’s share’ of the Jägerbombs and said it was a ‘fairly tame’ evening.
He didn’t realise how much they had drunk, until he saw the pub’s post of the receipt the next day – adding that he didn’t even have a hangover. Yeah right!
“I just really like Jägerbombs. I was happy as Larry that night.
“It was my turn to go to the bar – I don’t know what time it must have been, quite early to be honest with you, but I just thought, oh I’ll get some Jägerbombs.
“Then we just got into the habit really. That’s all it was. I think I took the lion’s share of the Jägerbombs.
“We bought three at a time, three at a time. I think I came back to the table at one point and we’d accrued some so I downed quite a few of them as a bit of a challenge.
“I think I was generally called the ring leader on that one. I’m quite a tall gentleman – we’re all quite well-built lads – so it takes quite a bit of alcohol to put us down really. I’m not an amateur.
“It sounds like a childish brag, but this is quite tame really. It’s embarrassing when I say it out loud.
“We genuinely had not got a clue how much we had drunk until we had seen it on Facebook.
“We had two shots of absinthe before we started drinking for the day. The moral of the story is don’t start day drinking on absinthe or you’ll end up spending £500. What a dickhead.
“God knows how much we spent in the other bars as well. I won’t be checking my credit card, to put it that way.”
Sharing the receipt, the pub wrote:
“I think this week’s ‘Bill of the Week’ just beats the last one. There were only three of them (some ladies helped them with the wine).”
The Fat Badger’s manager Chris Clarke said:
“As far as I’m aware, they did drink all 85 shots themselves. There will likely have been a few that went to other people, but essentially yes, they did drink them themselves.
“I was there the night it happened. The funny thing was they would have done 100. They came and ordered 15 more but we were actually out of Jägermeister.
“They were three really nice guys. They were right as rain at the end of it. They were absolutely fine. We didn’t make anyone poorly or anything like that.
“They were three very experienced blokes who knew what they were doing.
“Next time they come in we’ll have to give them free Jägerbombs. Not 85, but we’ll definitely give them a free one. You can quote me on that – we’ll definitely give them a free one.”
