drinking stories

Date rape is a serious problem that can be tricky to stop. Sure you could watch your drink like a hawk all night, but realistically it's almost impossible to tell when some creep has spiked your drink with a date rape drug. One solution is this specially treated glassware, which clearly warns you if someone has been fooling around with your beverage.
Back in August a bar opened in Paris. This bar is named Dernier Bar Avant La Fin Du Monde which roughly translates to "The Last Bar Before the End of the World." Okay, so it's some kind of doomsday bar, right? Actually, it's a geek-centric bar that caters to fans of all sorts of awesome stuff. From table-top games to Star Wars and Lord of the Rings, many a geeky interest is represented. Once the interwebs got wind of Dernier Bar, people started getting fired up about it. Some who had been there (and others who hadn't) started dubbing it "The Geekiest Bar in the World". Now, I'm not saying that Dernier Bar isn't awesome. Far from it. But in the world? I think that claim is due a bit of scrutiny. That said, scrutiny best left to the experts. So, rather than pass my own judgement, I'm handing the reins over to you: the people. Here's a list of 14 geeky bars, Dernier Bar included. Which do you think is the geekiest? Is there a bar not on the list that's geekier than anything I've mentioned? You decide.
With all those old Soviet-era military facilities lying empty in Russia, so many of them get repurposed into the type of facility that the old Politburo would never have approved of. This gigantic structure, called Bunker 42, lies about 200 feet under the downtown Moscow streets, and has been transformed into something that looks like it's equal parts Star Wars bar and spacecraft from the movie 2001.
