Couple Days in Brisbane

13Trip End Jun 11, 2009
Last night was interesting as the backpackers I stayed at had a bit of a games night was prizes and what not. Most of the prizes where for trips I had been on or didn't have time to go on but I figured I could trade them for a couple jugs if I did win. I nearly won the first competition which was a thumb war, I took down 5 challengers but a last minute challenger managed to get me because my forearm was already tired and tensed up (that's my excuse anyways). For another competition they called up anyone that could scull (chug) a pint, I figured I could hold my own so I stepped up, worst case I get a free beer. Ends up they never intended to give us beer and we had to down a pint of rice crispies with a cup of soda water mixed with balsamic vinegar to wash it down. You can imagine how pleasant that was and I didn't even end up winning in the end some Canadian girl finished before anyone of the guys had finished half somehow. That also makes me realize that after not really meeting any Canadians for the past couple weeks I would say more then half the bar was Canadians and Americans so that was a little strange.
I'm leaving in a couple of hours for Byron Bay so I'm just trying to preoccupy myself, I might hit up the Treasury Casino and see if I can't make some money to spend over the next few days down the coast.
