Summertime is in full swing here in Montreal! The city is full of stuff to see and do. Numerous festivals and tourists have taken over the city and people here are doing one of their favorite things to do in the summer: drink! If you've ever been to Montreal you'd know that we like our evenings to be nice and liquored up when we go out. Not that we're drunks, we just really enjoy our alcohol...sometimes a lot :P My recent adventures south-of-the-border got me thinking about my BG brethren and the numerous times we've shared a glass, bottle or pitcher of something. So I figured I'd compile a list of my BG boys' favorite drinks to enjoy during nights out on the town.
Keep in mind, if ever you spot us out and about, this drinking guide to the BG boyz may be a good way to get yourself noticed :)
If you're trying to get the attention of my buddy, trainer and masseur (yes he just got his certification) Alain LeClair, you're a bit out of luck. Unfortunately, he has a fair deal of stomach issues that mean he has a lot of trouble dealing with alcohol. Your best chance with him is to get him a nice tall glass of water and complement him on his nearly 18 inch biceps ;)
If slimmer fare and six pack abs are your kind of thing, look no further than Skip Vance. Though he may be smaller than most guys who'd approach him, he can drink with the best of them! You'll need to whip out your best Patron to satisfy his taste-buds!
If a compact, muscle-bound hunk is your idea of a good time, Morgan Cruise is happy to oblige. Beware though! This little brute like his drinks surprisingly sweet! A nice Piña Colada or a flute of Champagne will get this beast on your side. You just may avoid a beat-down that way ;) But do you want to? :P
In the no-fuss category, newcomer Ty Alexander is easily satisfied with "whatever's cheap"! Beer will do the trick but if you happen to catch him poolside, he's more than happy to indulge in a nice margarita. Then again who wouldn't? Plus, you'd be poolside with Ty Alexander! Speedos with that drink?
If you want your guy tough as nails with a lot of attitude, the elusive Hawk Rodman is your match. Give him a nice solid vodka and, if he's feeling particularly festive, add a splash of orange juice in there for good measure. try to keep up with him at your own peril as this guy can hold his drinks well!
Sticking in the tough-slim-guy category, Ethan Axel Andrews will be more than happy to share a nice beer with you. He prefers new and different craft beers though, so try and get him something original instead of your every-day corner-store cases of 24!
Sebastian Rios enjoys his Malibu rum mixed with cranberry juice. Granted, not sure how much he can take before losing his senses...he is a small guy and, when replying to my question, described Malibu as being a Canadian rum. Perhaps, he was sipping some while writing because Malibu isn't remotely Canadian...lol
If all-that-and-a-bag-of-chips kind of guys grab your attention, Damien Rush is definitely your man! This gorgeous piece of man also has complex tastes. Though partial to Piña Coladas, he also enjoys his long island iced teas and something called "scorebook bowls" which I've googled and can't figure out for the life of me...there's your conversation starter gentlemen!
And finally, when it comes to me, I'm very versatile with my drink selections :) Though a nice blond beer will be a standard drink, I'm just as happy with mixed drinks containing rum or vodka. If it's summer, a nice pitcher of sangria is ideal. In winter, cuddle up with a glass of Port!
On that note, happy drinking games to you all! And may the odds be ever in your favor ;) Cheers!
