Drink of the Week for Apr 18th, 2002: Zombie

What we had to say

Well, Zombies are pretty much what we feel like right now. It's not really because of all those hydrogeology exams or thesis papers that are due, it's really more because of all the brain-eating. But we won't get into that.

This drink is a classic. Very, very tasty, and a great way to unwind after a long semester. Great meaning it'll put you flat on your ass. What did you think we meant?
