For my photos, go here.] Here's a quick bar tour through Wellington I did on the third day of the 42Below Vodka Cocktail World Cup 2010. I started off at Subculture, one of many small basement bar/clubs in the city. It was also one of many venues playing drum & bass music, apparently the official soundtrack of Queenstown. Next up was Skybar, a lounge with clouds on the ceiling and a long cocktail list of mostly... Read more →

For my photos, go here.] After the afternoon's mystery ingredient challenge, we had a party to celebrate... existence at a penthouse in Queenstown overlooking the lake.

For my photos, go here.] More from the 42Below Cocktail World Cup... Last night's party was sort of epic, and then we went to a bar to celebrate. Then today we split up for various extreme adventures. I went on a cliff-side drive that was scenic and lovely and not very extreme, except the part when people in the van started getting carsick. (The funny thing is, those are the people who were originally supposed to... Read more →

For my photos, go here.] This is more reporting from the 42Below World Cocktail Cup in New Zealand. This is the video I took bungee jumping in New Zealand, held in my hand as I went off the cliff.

Then it was time for the second competition. We loaded up buses and headed to a groovy hunting lodge-esque event space for the evening, which had a rock and roll party theme (and a box of costumes to chose... Read more →

For my photos, go here.] I am trying to upload pictures and videos from New Zealand today but the internet is awful slow and I have only an hour, so we'll see what we can see. After 20 hours of traveling I arrived in New Zealand for the 42Below Vodka Cocktail World Cup yesterday. Instead of checking in to the hotel and showering, we went to jump off a bridge. I've never been bungee jumping before,... Read more →

Oh Hello! Sorry I may not be able to get to the internet right now as I am on the way to New Zealand. For the next week I'll be at the 42Below Vodka Cocktail World Cup. I will attempt to live blog the contest as much as possible with content here, on my Flickr page, and on my YouTube page. I'll keep this post on top of the page so random photos below will make sense. Read more →
