The university of booze
How much should a chap know about vodka? Well I think a person should know enough any form of alcohol to hold his own in a pub quiz, but not enough to be a bore.
I would say my vodka knowledge is rather lacking in this respect. I know how one drinks it, and have a rough idea of the correct range of temperature to serve it at and if pushed I could probably name a few signature vodkas that one should try but that is about it.
That is going to change in a few hours as tonight I'm going to Vodka University. I had no idea there was such a place but they have invited me to attend and so in the name of investigation I must go.
I'm not sure I'm in much of a state to do any investigating, it was a friend's birthday party last night and I'm still a little broken. It was a great bash, she had managed to fill an entire pub with chums and so at every table there were people chatting away happily about all sorts of nonsense. I couldn't stay long due to the dreaded curfew but thanks to the warm weather and a bit of speed drinking I still managed to get quite broken.
So tired, hungover and mildly reluctant to learn anything? Gosh it will be just like being back at university.
