Bottomless beer for USD $5...
Need I say more....
Ok I may aswell or this will be a really short journal entry...
After a great day of relaxing on the beach and doing lengths in the pool, I felt like a big night out was in order. Coincidently, I had taken note of a sign I had seen at one of the bars on Jalan Legian. A bar that for the low price of 50,000 RP, you could get bottomless beer.
It sounded too good to be true....needless to say, when Matthew got back from his Padi course, I told him of it. Just after six (the start of the beer offer), we left to grab a quick bite to eat and then check out this unbelievable offer.
We had to endure another typical Bali power cut so dinner took a lot longer than expected then it was off for a 6-11 happy hour of free or as close to free beer.
Forget the relaxation on the beach....THIS was Heaven!!
It was not just any old beer either, it was Heineken! This pub offer was just asking to be taken advantage of.
Not surprisingly, we were not the only ones to know about this offer. We could not find a seat in the beer garden so sat on a step until I got talking to a really fun Welsh girl in the queue for a top up who inivted us to join her and all her mates; Olly, Sarah & Anna. Once again, in the queue to get my free top up of beer, I got talking to Russell & Rael who soon joined us, a Welsh man and a Scot. I was little surprised that our growing crowd of friends were predominently from Ireland & the UK.
This is the point where things would start to get hazy as the beer kept flowing steadily but once the bottomless beer ran out, we were off.
We soon discovered that Bounty is a cross between a night club and a sauna. The place was boiling hot. There was not a soul in the building not sweaty the alcohol out of all their pores. In fact, I reckon we were all sweating it out of us far quicker than we could drink it!
We owned the dance floor from the moment we entered.
I can't really remember much about the music but I do know it was great fun dancing to it. They had those cages on pedastels around the place. Myself & Anna owned one of these until Rael was substituted in for her. At the risk of looking gay, we did what any guy would have done...asked every girl that walked by to squeeze in and join us.
While I was in the cage dancing, I had left my "thongs" just outside the cage but to my horror somebody theived them! I have had them for the last couple of years at this stage. Who would want them?? The bouncer set off to find them and eventually came back with two flip flops for me. They were not mine nor were they from the same man or person. I had the right flip flop of some gigantic man and the right flip flop of some small girl.......so I carrie don dancing with two right feet!!
This did not stop the night and us lads carried on like the troopers we are and made our way into Paddy's, the other big nightclub in town.
What a great night out and made some great new friends....oh and found where Heaven has been hiding, not bad for a days work.
