Has the Captain Cook Hotel ever been the same?

There is the possibility of me going back to the Captain Cook Hotel in Paddington this Thursday night before I go to watch a Waratahs trial. For those who didn't have the pleasure back in '04, it was the scene of an unlikely post-party party.

It was 766 days ago - the day of my 21st birthday celebrations. Mum and Dad had put on a ripper of a party during the day at our old place adjacent to Randwick Racecourse. From memory, the following events happened:

  • Paff decided to use skills learned as one of the Ox's barmaids (and one of the hottest) to pour herself a couple of jugs of beer, then proceeded to notify the barman of his professional shortcomings.
  • There were holes in the walls of the men's, after someone played demolition expert.
  • Lane tried to get to know several of my female invitees.
  • There was nakedness at the bar. Enough said.
  • One of the attendees may or may not have made relations with my younger sister outside the front of the pub.
  • The barman gave me free shots because he didn't think I'd drunk enough. Then I vomitted in a nearby laneway.
  • Willis & Hoy literally carried me home. Mates!

Here's a few old photos of the events prior to the debauchery:

Then some idiot gave me a wig and everything started to get loose.

Unfortunately, I don't have any pictures from here on. However feel free to email them to me if you have any tucked away in a random computer file somewhere.

So anyway, I'm possibly off there again later this week. Hope they don't remember me.

i know commenting about a blog so long after it was posted isn't right, but i wanted to add it was a beautiful post party party at the captain cook and to thank you for not only letting me see the demolition display but urinating in front of me too. Good Friend!

Becks - I'm kind of glad your comment was posted well in the depths of the blog. My head still hurts from that audaciously violent car garage.

Sorry about the urine by the way.
