A night of experiments

I went out with Julia on Friday. First, because, I'm cheap and I don't like to buy all of my drinks at bars, I asked her to bring something over when she came to get ready at my house. That led to my unwitting participation in the experiment Does Vodka Go Bad? (answer: YES).

So we left my house in a cold state of sobriety. We got downtown, and splitting a pitcher of beer at a skeezy dive bar simply didn't feel like a frugal enough choice in today's tough economic climate. So we went to Long's (experiment: is Long's Drug's the creepiest place downtown you could possible go at 9ish on a Friday night? answer: YES).

Everything there was looking a might pricey, so we ended up selecting a small bottle of Skolvar Vodka to share, and we each got a Gatorade and/or "Juice Drink" for ourselves. Dumped out part of the Gatorade a la Getting Drunk at a High School Dance. And....went to the bus station to drink it. Until the security guard yelled at us. Experiment: Is there anything classier than sneaking sips of cheap mixed drinks on a bus station bench? Answer: NO.

That's a lot of teeth

  1. Two things:
    1.) How, exactly, does vodka go bad?
    2.) Remember the guy outside the Long's with the face that was melting? And how we couldn't avoid him, and he kept turning up? And it was the creepiest thing EVER? That experience seems to fit with the one you describe here in the unseamliness (sp?).

  2. Does vodka go bad if you keep it in the freezer? That's where mine is, right next to the whiskey.

  3. What would make vodka go bad? I know wine can turn into vinegar, but doesn't most alcohol get better with "age"? Maybe cheap liquor can go bad?

  4. Why is everything that you recorded that evening pretty much from the bathroom? Did it have a prettier background than the bus station? - Daphne

  6. We recorded everything in the bathroom because that was the only time that we were consciously aware of possessing a camera. And we're classy.

    Vodka, if opened five years ago and left in a cupboard that entire time, most definitely goes bad. And tastes worse.

  7. I used to cut it with a Slurpee. Regardless of the time of year.

  9. A drink we like to call 3am on a School Night:

    Any kind of liquor
    Any kind of kool-aid

    Mix. Drink.

  11. One time when I was a kid, a friend and I tasted every single bottle of liquor in her parents cupboard. There were over 50 bottles. (Her mom catered from home.) The next week she told me her mom cleaned them out and threw away over half of them because she said they had gone "bad". Ugh.
