"irish blokes" Brussels Favorite Tip by bakpakchik

Brussels General: 440 reviews and 549 photos

Favorite thing: The Irish are so funny. They drink way too much. At least the ones I've met. Did I tell the story about the irish guy at the 3 ducks in Paris? Maybe i should put this on my paris page instead ... oh heck, i'll put it in both places. Well, I had seen him drinking way too much one night and the next morning, when I was having breakfast, he
sort of waltzed down and crashed at my table. He looked pretty bad and I asked him if he was okay. In his thick irish accent, he said something, the gist of which was that he had apparently drunk too much last night and had passed out in the courtyard - though he
couldn?t remember it at all. I tut-tutted and reprimanded him about the vices of too much alcohol. Then I noticed that he was holding a glass that read ?smirnoff?. I was horrified. ?are you drinking again??
I asked him. For goodness sake, this was nine in the morning. ?No,? he said. ?this is just water.? And then he passed out again. Right in front of me. I couldn?t believe this guy. I was a little suspicious and I smelled his drink. Sure enough. Vodka, not water! So
that?s irish blokes for you.
