A pub in West Yorkshire has revealed their ‘Bill of the Week’, a boozy receipt which adds up to a staggering £519.75.
The Fat Badger in Harrogate shared the bill on their Facebook page, which reads like a recipe for the hangover from hell.
A whopping £340 was spent on 85 Jägerbombs, during what one of the three drinkers describes as a pretty ‘tame’ afternoon pub crawl. One of the three mates – 35-year-old Andy Caine – admitted he had enjoyed the ‘lion’s share’ of the Jägerbombs.
The remainder of the bill shows how the pals supped through a variety of bevvies, including three sambuca shots, three glasses of wine, six pints of Guinness, four gins, one pint of beer and one double tequila shot.
Andy, an engineer from Harewood, West Yorkshire, had no idea how much the group had knocked back until after he spotted The Fat Badger’s Facebook post.
He has now spoken out about his part in the humongous bill after the post went viral:
It was my turn to go to the bar – I don’t know what time it must have been, quite early to be honest with you, but I just thought, oh I’ll get some Jägerbombs.
Then we just got into the habit really. That’s all it was. I think I took the lion’s share of the Jägerbombs.
We bought three at a time, three at a time. I think I came back to the table at one point and we’d accrued some so I downed quite a few of them as a bit of a challenge.
I think I was generally called the ring leader on that one. I’m quite a tall gentleman – we’re all quite well built lads – so it takes quite a bit of alcohol to put us down really. I’m not an amateur.
It sounds like a childish brag, but this is quite tame really. It’s embarrassing when I say it out loud.
Andy revealed the trio had kicked the day off with a couple of shots of absinthe, and that he has no idea how much they must have spent in the other bars:
We genuinely had not got a clue how much we had drunk until we had seen it on Facebook. We had two shots of absinthe before we started drinking for the day.
The moral of the story is don’t start day drinking on absinthe or you’ll end up spending £500. What a d***head.
God knows how much we spent in the other bars as well. I won’t be checking my credit card, to put it that way.
48-year pub manager Chris ‘Clarkey’ Clarke revealed the lads only stopped drinking once the bar had ran out of Jägermeister, describing them as ‘three very experienced blokes’.
Bafflingly, Andy said he hadn’t suffered a hangover following this hardcore bar crawl.
