Overview

Most people have a few drinks to relax after work. For Zane Lamprey, however, having a few (or a few too many) drinks is work. But he’s not complaining. Zane has circled the globe knocking back an endless variety of booze while capturing his imbibing exploits for the cult-hit TV show Three Sheets. And now the Indiana Jones of alcohol consumption has gathered a round of his most amusing adventures, fascinating factoids, and tips for adventurous tipplers into this, the ultimate pub crawler’s memoir. Join him as he ventures, glass in hand, to
 
• Ireland, where whiskey was invented, drinking is a way of life, and beer is the best medicine
• Tanzania, where the popular “bee brew,” engortorogi, was accidentally discovered by a woman trying to poison her two-timing husband
• Las Vegas, where the scary-to-look-at, tasty-to-sip, and impossible-to-finish-alone Witch Doctor is a better bet than the gaming tables, and a bacon martini is a savory way to wash down Sin City’s famed $777 burger
• Japan, where the celebrated sake is brewed like beer and once featured saliva as a secret ingredient
• Poland, where vodka is the equivalent of America’s apple pie (one of the most popular brands is infused with flakes of gold) and lovers of beer constitute an official political party

Zane also sips champagne in the French region that gave the bubbly its name and heads to Tequila, Mexico to sample the infamous local spirit from the blue agave plant. He also bellies up to bars in Scotland, Jamaica, Argentina, New Zealand, Belgium, St. Martin, South Africa, and Taiwan. Each destination is a new adventure in libation.

Packed with anecdotes, recipes and drinking games, and more hangover remedies than you can shake a swizzle stick at, Three Sheets makes for a delightfully intoxicating cocktail.

From wine and champagne to beer and whiskey, Zane takes us on a hilarious journey into the world of intoxicating goodies as well as hangover cures from around the world.

    Lots of fun!

    We drank along with Zane during the episodes of "Three Sheets" on MOJO and FLN and now we can drink along with this book. From Zane's explanation of the term "Thee Sheets to the Wind" to the maps and pictures from the show "taped" to the pages, he shares with us some of his rather unusual travel experiences. Not exactly a travel guide, not exactly a beverage recipe book, not exactly a drinking game manual but a really fun combination of all of them.

    Zane has a "cast of characters" (old friends and a monkey he included in the show) and he re-introduces them to us. He has a way of making the reader feel like a personal friend and has already bought us a drink! (See introduction.) He also has every good comedian's ability to laugh the hardest at himself!

    As someone who has been eating and drinking with the "locals" both in this great country and other parts of the world, I agree with Zane that getting out there and mingling in the bars and watering holes is the best way to experience local culture-not on a tour bus.

    I'm not at all surprised to find the book is well-written-so was the show. Zane took it all on the road with the "Drinking Made Easy" tour last year. Lots of fun!

    Cheers!

    Ultimate

    If you're a fan of the show you will enjoy this book. If you simply wish to know a little more about the alcoholic beverages we love to consume, it is a great read. It will make you laugh while you learn about the different beverages and customs of some really great countries.

    Good show = Good book

    I bought this book for my husband as he travels alot overseas for his job. We used to really enjoy watching the show together and were dismayed when it was taken off the air. Before, my husband would research online to find the places on the show when he traveled. Having the book is much more convenient for him. The book itself, like the show, is witty and full of interesting regional facts. You get not only the best local pubs, but also local delicacies and new ideas for hangover cures, not saying that they work. Wether a fan of the show or not, if you enjoy finding good local pubs to have drink with good people when you travel this book is for you.
