Chug, Chug, Chug, Chug
I wanna go to college for the rest of my life, sip Banker’s Club, and drink Miller Lite…
Okay, (for some of us) long gone are the days of university where drinking games were a pre-night out staple, and if you refused to skull the last king during Ring of Fire you were automatically assigned ‘four fingers’ as penance. Even though we may not be as willing to down everything but the kitchen sink these days, we still love a good game of beer pong if the occasion should arise. And whenever somebody busts out those iconic red cups, it’s game on and suddenly we’re all beating our chests, chanting ‘down it‘ as another ping-pong ball splashes into a another cup of Tsing Tao. Sound familiar? It’s time to re-live your glory days with these top beer pong bars in Hong Kong…
