Three Men Rack Up £500 Bar Bill - Drinking 85 Jägerbombs

Three Men Rack Up £500 Bar Bill - Drinking 85 Jägerbombs

A pub has shared the eye-watering bill three pals managed to rack up - featuring 85 Jägerbombs.

The Fat Badger in Harrogate, Yorkshire, shared it's 'Bill of the Week' totalling £519.75 after the trio of fellas popped in one afternoon last month.

The 85 shots of Jägermeister and Red Bull cost £340 - and the men also drank their way through six pints of Guinness, four gins, three shots of sambuca, three glasses of wine, one pint of beer and a double tequila shot. The shot to pint ratio is all off here. I feel sick just thinking about it.

To look at it a different way - they put away 147.4 units of alcohol or 49.13 units each, way above the NHS guidelines of 14 units per week.

The booze was the calorific equivalent of 50 burgers, coming in at 14,513 calories or 4,838 calories each, again way above the daily calorie intake recommended by our pals at the NHS who suggest adult males have around 2,500 calories.

And if that list of drinks isn't enough to give you a hangover, Andy says they began their day elsewhere where they had absinthe. Then, after leaving The Fat Badger, which ran out of Jägermeister, they went on elsewhere.

One of the drinkers, Andy Caine, says he had the 'lion's share' of the Jägerbombs and said it was a 'fairly tame' evening. I'm not sure about that, mate.

Thirty-five-year-old Andy says he didn't realise how much they had drunk, until he saw the pub's post of the receipt the next day - adding that he didn't even have a hangover. I'm calling BS on that.

Andy said: "I just really like Jägerbombs. I was happy as Larry that night.

"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.

"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 dickhead.

"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."

Sharing a photo of the receipt on its Facebook page the pub wrote: "I think this week's 'Bill of the Week' just beats the last one. There were only three of them (some ladies helped them with the wine)."

The Fat Badger's manager Chris Clarke said: "As far as I'm aware, they did drink all 85 shots themselves. There will likely have been a few that went to other people, but essentially yes, they did drink them themselves.

"I was there the night it happened. The funny thing was they would have done 100. They came and ordered 15 more but we were actually out of Jägermeister.

"They were three really nice guys. They were right as rain at the end of it. They were absolutely fine. We didn't make anyone poorly or anything like that.

"They were three very experienced blokes who knew what they were doing.

"Next time they come in we'll have to give them free Jägerbombs. Not 85, but we'll definitely give them a free one. You can quote me on that - we'll definitely give them a free one."

Now look, I'm not your mum so you don't have to listen to me, but it goes without saying that drinking 85 shots of Jägermeister in a single sitting isn't a good idea for your body or your wallet - so please drink responsibly.
