Lots of beer & wine!
Benfica – we really ‘got on it’ on this trip. It was a great trip, but I will say (and it’s not some silly boast) that the beer & red wine consumed was obscene. The food was good, too.
On Tuesday afternoon we had a lovely meal. We arrived at the restaurant after a decent beer session in the main square and down at the port. I had some nice big prawns as a starter then a big veal chop to follow, washed down with too much red wine. Then back on the beer before the game and then again after it. Red wine was the nightcap at the hotel until they shut the bar at about 2.30am.
After the square beers at midnight a few of the others went to a club down at Doca, by the big bridge, which was reportedly an all-nighter that was ‘well worth it’. I went back to the hotel at 1.15am from the main square – I was full, as was the guy I travel with. All the sky sports lot were at the bar when we got back. Then that bigoted manc knt walked in briefly. Did I mention that? 😉
