    Really too bad because man can that guy hold his liquor.

    Anyway, any house that wants me, let me know...

    My friend and I would like to be on stand by for !Hufflepuff

    My best spell (Fobidden!):
    Mexican Yeast Infection
    1/2 oz Tequila
    1/4 oz Wild Turkey
    1/4 oz 151 Proof Rum
    1 splash(es) Tabasco Sauce
    1 tbsp Mayonnaise

    Rim the shot glass with mayonnaise then add the liqueurs. Should be filled to the brim so some of the mayo seeps into the drink. Add a splash of Tabasco and in one sweeping motion, lick the mayo and do the shot.

    Anyone up for a forbidden duel ;)

    Anyone got a website that lists recipes for "spells"?


    I fail at drinks that don't involve pink coconut rims.

    OMG Pink Poodle Recipe Below!

    Beryllium's Pink Poodle Recipe:


    Rim:

    - Pink-dyed dry shredded coconut

    Lazy Variant:

    - Undyed dry shredded coconut + pink cake decorator's sugar


    Put that in a saucer and coat the rim of the glass with rum, turn the glass upside down and dip into the coconut. The result should look something like a feather boa that's seen better days.






    Throw the following into a blender:

    1) Some ice (not too much, we're going for a slushie consistency, not the kind of drink that stands up in the glass).

    2) A generous jigger of Dark Rum.

    3) A few spoonfulls of Cream of Coconut (a sickly-sweet non-alcoholic cream you will find in a can, not Creme de Cacao, full-fat coconut milk + simple syrup will do if you're desperate).

    4) Grenadine until it's pink.

    5) Your dignity.


    BLEND IT.


    Pour carefully into glasses.

    Get hammered.



    Men's Warning: You immediately lose all man points if caught holding a Pink Poodle.

    I love the idea of working with drinks that will show Ravenclaw pride so I think so far I might be leaning towards a spell list that includes:
    Blue and Gold
    Brain Teaser
    Ice Cream Genius

    Powerful? Maybe not but I'm going more towards drinks that I found that look tasty with the small hope that anyone who pairs up with me will be stumped as to what to order. ;)

    That pink poodle sounds emasculating-ly delicious.

    I just drove away from a challenge to a street fight. My man points ran out half an hour ago.

    EDIT: On topic: blue and gold has no excuse to not be blue berry schnapps and goldschlager.

    Except, that would be awful.

    Wait a tick... Think I found my spell.

    I don't think that would include cream, orange juice, and ice cream would it? Those are pretty tame...
    I'd drink an ounce or two of cream straight up willingly anyways.

    May you wreak much havoc, SlickShughes!

    Forgot to add: I'll stick to just alcohol things though =) ...even though I wanted to drink ice cream

    I haven't signed up for this, but there's a chance my friends & I (3) might tag along and watch the shenanagins. If the bars get overcrowded, we'll back off. But, question...

    This starts from the PrePAX dinner, but are you planning to walk from the dinner to the first bar? Or drive from the dinner and re-group at the first bar at a specified time? Perhaps this will be announced at the dinner, but I wanted to know if we should be walking or driving to the dinner in the first place.

    Also, in what order are the bars being visited?

    Apologies if this is covered somewhere, but I could not find it. Perhaps that was intentional to keep out the riff-raff (me). :)

    Well, the dinner is taking place within 2 miles of the drinking area, so walking isn't out of the question, but that ends at 8 and the first challenge starts at 8:20, so I'd imagine there'd be a lot of driving. Then again, I'm not going to that shindig, so I could be talking out of my ass.

    So a weak ass question:

    Due to excessive partying in my college years, my body abhors taking shots. Doesn't matter the booze, or composition of drink, but shooting hard A makes me instantly gag. Is there any way I can request that "spells" against me are not shots? I'll pound a drink any day, even if it's vile, but even the most mild shot will make me run for the toilet.

    Are you fucking serious? You've had ALL SUMMER to practice this shit Gryffindor!

    ANYWAY: You can request it, but once you're at the bar since the Challenger buys there's no guarantees. Depends on how much of a dick they want to be. :evil:

    Before you pair up with someone just make sure to ask "Hey are you a dick? No? Ok cool, please no shots."
    I won't order a shot against you if you really can't stand it but I'm one of many potential challengers. Best of luck!

    Actually that makes me think of something. Will I be letting anyone in Ravenclaw down if I punk out a little early (not a lot early, that's no fun) just to make sure I don't have a hangover during the first round of Omegathon? haha with so many people I doubt it'll matter but I guess I want to be polite? Or whatever the etiquette for Triwizard is...

    Yeah, I'm going to tentatively sign up for !Ravenclaw. This will probably be confirmed ridiculously late in the game when I show up at the dinner and awkwardly introduce myself to people.

    My spell of choice is the Orange Fuck You. Triple vodka shot and half a shot of orange soda.

    Some concern has arisen over whether or not people on the crawl can perform "extracurricular" activities during the crawl to raise more money for their house.

    I've considered the subject all day while sitting in my office and stroking my wizardly beard*.

    In my opinion, I do not care if others perform ridiculous acts to raise money during the crawl as long as it happens during the crawl. It will only add to how ridiculous the event is already and everyone is capable of doing the same.

    Like the blue hawaiian, good stuff:

    1 oz light rum
    1 cherry
    2 oz pineapple juice
    1 oz Blue Curacao liqueur
    1 oz cream of coconut
    1 slice pineapple

    Blend light rum, blue curacao, pineapple juice, and cream of coconut with one cup ice in an electric blender at high speed. Pour contents into a highball glass. Decorate with the slice of pineapple and a cherry.

    Eh, after my 21st on Saturday night, I kinda.. only maybe don't want alcohol. Well, maybe one drink, but that's all. Seriously. Bad timing, right before the pub crawl, but a day and a half of misery from the worst hang over EVAR? Hmm. I also agree with the not wanting to do shots.
