    A binge drinking contest to promote your booze? Who thought that brilliant idea up?

    This is entirely different from our Drunken-Style-Championship.


    Man dies after binge-drinking contest, organizers to compensate
    Updated: 2015-05-05 17:36
    (Xinhua)

    ZHENGZHOU - The organizers of an alcohol drinking contest in Central China's Henan province on Tuesday were ordered to pay compensation of over 70,000 US dollars after one participant died.

    Wang Qiang took part in the contest in Luoyang city in July with a friend. Both men reportedly said they "felt weird" after the competitive binge-drinking session.

    The other man regained consciousness after medical attention, however, Wang was not so lucky. The cause of death was attributed to alcohol poisoning.

    Wang's family filed a lawsuit against the organizers of the event: the Henan Alcohol Association, the Henan Alcohol Association Luoyang Office and Luoyang Siyue Trade Co. Ltd., for their active role in Wang's death.

    The Laocheng district court of Luoyang ruled that the organizers should pay 447,642.36 yuan to the family.

    The defendants did not say whether they will appeal.

    Random yet amusing

    I had a similar situation going into Beijing but instead of chugging it, I had to place it in a briefcase I bought quickly at the airport gift store and check it as luggage. I wrote about that in Shaolin Trips - Episode Two.

    What to do with expensive alcohol before boarding a flight? Why, chug it, of course!

    What would you do if you were about to catch a flight but were then told that you couldn’t bring a bottle of alcohol worth approximately 8,000-yuan (US$1,290) onto the plane? Hands up if you’d down it in a matter of minutes!

    On June 20, a man at the Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport in southeast China was stopped as he was about to board his plane. The reason? Airport officials had discovered a cute tiger ornament in his possession that had an unscrewable head, which subsequently revealed the animal to be full of a high-grade, revitalizing alcohol.

    Now, it might seem strange to seasoned travelers that anyone could commit such a rookie mistake as trying to bring a large quantity of liquid in with their carry-on luggage onto the plane. However, it just so happens that June 20 of this year marked the traditional Duanwu Festival, otherwise known as the Dragon Boat Festival, throughout parts of China. Many people were traveling to be with relatives around that time, including complete airport newbies, so airport security had to deal with an unusually high number of these types of incidents over the past few weeks.

    With hardly any time left before the plane’s departure to dash off and store it in his checked luggage, what was the man to do? Rather than dump the precious, 8,000-yuan ($1,290) bottle of liquid down the drain, he began chugging it in turns with his younger brother, who also happened to be a fellow passenger on the flight:



    ▼ You go, little bro!



    ▼ The tiger-shaped vessel, which could easily be mistaken for a decoration




    Despite warnings from the airport staff that the brothers wouldn’t be allowed on the plane if they were completely drunk, we have to guess that they made it to their final destination safely, although with a bit lighter luggage in tow.

    Hopefully this tale will remind everyone to stay well aware of safety regulations before traveling, so that no one else finds themselves in the middle of an impromptu Oktoberfest at the airport like these guys did!

    Centuries-old alcohol discovered in China
    Lilit Marcus, CNN • Published 7th November 2018

    (CNN) — Bottoms up!
    Chinese archaeologists have uncovered a 2,000-year-old bronze pot that contains an alcoholic liquid believed to be wine.
    The discovery occurred on November 6 in China's Henan province, west of Shanghai.
    Shi Jiazhen, who is head of the Institute of Cultural Relics and Archaeology in the province's city of Luoyang, tells China's Xinhua news agency that "there are 3.5 liters of the liquid in the color of transparent yellow. It smells like wine."
    The maybe-wine was found as part of an excavation of a Western Han Dynasty-era tomb, along with artifacts made from clay and bronze.
    Wine has long played in a role in other important archeological digs.
    Shards of pottery dating from the Neolithic era (6000-5800 BCE) marked with remnants of grapes were unearthed in the country of Georgia in 2017. They contain some hints about the origin of winemaking there, nearly a full millennium ahead of when historians had previously believed the practice began.
    The pottery had traces of tartaric acid, which is what gives wine its tartness.
    Meanwhile, the island nation of Cyprus also holds claim to another historical wine accomplishment: Its Commanderia dessert wine is believed to be the oldest named wine in the world.
    Other than the as-yet-unnamed liquid, the other major discovery in the Henan province archeological dig this week was a large bronze lamp in the shape of a goose.
    Luoyang is rich with historical significance. Its location at the confluence of the Yellow and Luo rivers makes it an important center for trading. It has been the capital of many dynasties, including the Western Jin, Northern Wei and Later Tang.
    The city is home to the Shaolin Temple (sometimes referred to as the Shaolin Monastery), which is famed for its connection to kung fu, and the Longmen Grottoes Buddhist rock carvings, both of which are UNESCO World Heritage sites.

    Bay Area Authorities on the Hunt for Woman Who Stole $4K Bottle of Cognac From a Restaurant


    by Dianne de Guzman Mar 15, 2022, 10:42am PDT
    Cognac At Remy Cointreau SA
    A sticky-fingered patron at Mt. Hamilton Grand View Restaurant in San Jose left with quite the prize: a 100-year-old bottle of Louis XIII cognac valued at $4,000. Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office posted surveillance video and photos of the theft on Facebook. In the video, a woman dips behind the bar of the GrandView and, aided by a male accomplice-slash-lookout, quickly picks up a bottle then leaves the restaurant with cognac in hand. The theft took place on March 8, and KTVU reports the couple was part of a dinner party of 10 that ate at the restaurant before taking the alcohol. And no, there is no credit card for police to chase in this instance — the group apparently paid the $1,600 dinner tab in cash. [KTVU]
    Wonder if she's drunk the evidence yet...

    A woman walked out of a restaurant with a bottle of alcohol worth thousands — and returned it days later, California police said. The Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office said Saturday, March 12, it was searching for a woman who was seen snatching a bottle of alcohol from the Grand View restaurant in San Jose. Surveillance footage showed the woman walking behind the bar counter and taking a bottle from the back. She then walked out of the room, video showed. Deputies said the bottle of alcohol is worth $4,000. A restaurant manager told KTVU the woman took a bottle of Louis XIII cognac that was 100 years old. Days after it was taken, the bottle was returned, the restaurant’s owner told NBC Bay Area. $2 for 2 months Subscribe for unlimited access to our website, app, eEdition and more CLAIM OFFER Someone showed up with the bottle to return it on the woman’s behalf, according to Bay Area News Group. It was still sealed when it was returned, and the restaurant doesn’t plan to press charges, according to the news outlet. “With all the bad things happening around the world, from COVID to Ukraine, I decided to give her a second chance and not press charges,” the owner told NBC Bay Area. “She’s a mother of six who says she’s very sorry.”
    Still pondering a $4K bottle. How much is that per shot?

    Johnnie Walker Blue Label Year of the Rabbit.

    Johnnie Walker Unveils 2022 Lunar New Year Bottle
    By Kyle Swartz - November 28, 2022

    Johnnie Walker Blue Label Year of the Rabbit.

    Johnnie Walker has unveiled their 2022 Johnnie Walker Blue Label Lunar New Year Limited Edition Design, featuring art from Shanghai-based fashion designer Angel Chen.

    The label for the Year of the Rabbit shows a “dynamic, modern interpretation” of 2023’s Zodiac animal, the rabbit, the company says. The rabbit signifies longevity in traditional Asian culture, and as an echo of the Johnnie Walker motto, Keep Walking, rabbits are shown hopping among mountains, the company adds.

    Chen, who studied fashion in the Central Saint Martin College of Art (London), says, “There’s a defiant energy to my illustrations which bring to life the vibrant spirit of the rabbit as it leaps across the design, symbolizing how we need to keep moving forward, spreading goodness throughout the year to come.”

    Johnnie Walker Blue Label Year of the Rabbit, 40% ABV, is available now at retailers until supplies last. It has a suggested retail price of $275 per 750-ml. bottle.
