Returning to the 50's

It was the Tuesday night RPG tonight. Well it was us and very little playing. In fact we are still quibbling about what to play. So meantime we decided to have a steak and martini night. Well that drinking component might have been one small slaves doing...

See they had never tried a martini before. This is hard to imagine. Those things are an ode to alcohol. So armed with some rather good gin and vodka off we set. Actually we also had a shaker, measure, glasses, vermouth, ice and a heavy cast iron pan. Err... that last one was for the steaks just so we are clear... seen what he cooks their food in normally L

Suitably armed we rocked up to find that she hadn't eaten all day. Now on martinis that is just asking to be stonkered in about 10 minutes flat, so we did the steaks first... which was rather a shame. The idea is to get a bit of a buzz and then kill it with some solid food. But anyway, off we set on our exploration of alcohol...

We started off with a twoo martini; which for the record is gin swirled gently with an olive trim, not some fancy flavoured crap. They sat there sipping cautiously. It tastes really good and then tastes not so good he reported. It was interesting to note though that when the booze hit his system (about five minutes flat) that was elevated to those things get better with every mouthful. She said so these are like gin? So really a martini is a rich person's way of having shots. Yeah think they had a firm grasp of the mechanics of a martini J

For the next round one did James Bond or vodka martinis... which personally one prefers. Sipping the edges of their glasses like two small birds their eyes got very bright. Oh yes those are good was the verdict. Now that was his last one... he is not a drinker, though he did agree that olives taste way better when drowned in booze (and he hates olives). She on the other hand was a convert... as she said they go with everything including cigarettes. Frankly nothing should go with that noxious habit, but then one speaks as a reformed smoker J

So there we are... finally found a way to make Tuesday night RPGing so much better. All that was needed was to get rid of the game component and add liberal amounts of alcohol. Who knew it could be so simple? Scampers off to unearth the cocktail handbook...

Perhaps with a few martini's under ones belt, the idea of a level 6 mage attmepting a level 15 fireball is not so bad after all?

Round of applause from over here. That sounds like a good evening.

Actually with enough martinis under the belt the whole idea of RPGing isn't so bad...

@Vixen You know attractive as you make that idea seem, one will have to respectfully decline your gracious offer. Looking at it one can't help but feel that not only is one the wrong person for the job, but that the singular lack of reward may be something of a sticking point :D

awwwww... no fun at all. and who says there will be no reward? If I'm drunk enough you just might convince to to log on as Red and block YOUR owner :D
