Very important work
Sometimes we like to do silly things in the hopes of entertaining our readers. Once before, it involved eating the spiciest burger on the planet (we think) and this time it involves alcohol, our favorite.

The Globe, Garden's Grove Belgian pub, holds the "Chimay Challenge" for anyone who'd like to get rather drunk on a quality beer. To win the challenge, and have your photo put up on The Globe's wall, you must finish a 70 oz. chalice of Chimay Triple White in one sitting and without throwing up. Reporters Taylor Hamby, Charles Lam, and our art director, Dustin Ames, all enjoy drinking very much and were up to the challenge. Watch what happened below...

The downside? There isn't a time limit...and you don't get the $60 beer for free if you finish. :( Alas, it is fun. But do plan on having a DD!

When my son was a student at UC San Diego, he made several hundred dollars to get drunk for some study at the med school. A college boy's dream come true!

Those are about the size of the Scorpions at The Peppermill that I have with my breakfast when in Vegas...

I had to stop myself from chugging the entire thing 'cause I didn't want to sit around doing nothing for two hours.

That's what, a little more than 4 pints? 4 pints doesn't sound as much as 70 ounces, does it? Still, I like Chimay, but not quite enough to drink 70 ounces of it. 70 ounces of Pliny, however...

Great job!  Made me very thirsty to watch.

@slop101  It's about two liters or a six pack. Just a little more than 4 pints. Looks intimidating, but not actually that tough.
