The Sambuca Incident

Posted on 2004/04/14 13:50:16 (April 2004).

[Tuesday 23rd March] Chie's friend Shu was going back to Japan in a couple of days time, so this was the last chance for us to go for a drink with him. Kev joined us for the evening as well, partly as a sort of pre-birthday drink. We managed a nice mini pub crawl incorporating three pubs, and it was all going very well until the Sambuca incident. The barman at the last pub on our agenda very kindly offered us all a free glass of flaming sambuca. Unfortunately, three out of four of the glasses had been left to burn for too long and had become superheated by the time we came to drink them, and Shu, Chie and Kev all got very nasty burns on their hands. I managed to escape this by virtue of my glass having gone out twice, and was left feeling very guilty indeed. Ho, hum.
