This is kind of an odd experience. On March 18, 2016, Mark, his wife, Mary Ann and I were at Mama Kwan’s in Nags Head, North Carolina for lunch. We had just arrived for a weekend at the beach and headed over to MK’s for fish tacos. (The fish tacos are pretty good, not the best I have had, but the others seemed to rave about them. The other food is good.) Mark instigated this experience by ordering Bud Lite Limes. Bud Lite Lime is a refreshing beer that really does not taste like a beer, rather it tastes like a lime soda. It is low in alcohol so you can normally keep drinking them without worrying. Between he and I, we drank all the Bud Lite Limes they had, according to Emily the bartender. However, our feat had unintended consequences. Along with the two shots of Fireball, I was done in for the day. It is really tough to have a hangover in the afternoon, especially when you want to enjoy the beach. Needless to say, I offered to be the designated driver the rest of the weekend.
The first time we had this kind of experience was several years ago in Edenton, North Carolina, where Mark (again) and I went to a small bar and had several Coronas. We had enough to completely wipe that bar out of that beer. As with Mama Kwan’s, I had a similar fall out, perhaps worse as Coronas are bad beer, if you can even call it beer.
