Show 15 Monday 17 April

Watch today's show at grouper or YouTube.


Kia Ora, in Stick News today: be careful what you order at the bar. Getting on the piss in America could cost you thousands.

In the United States of America there is a casino called Foxwoods Resort. Inside the casino, there’s a new bar called the Mezz Ultra Lounge. At this bar, you can buy a martini for $3000. It’s served in a traditional martini glass and comes with a pair of earrings.
But it’s not the first drink to have a ridiculous price tag. At the Blue Bar in New York you can buy a diamond martini for $10,000. Since the cocktail debuted in 2004, only two have sold.
And in 2003, at the Ritz Hotel in London you could by the Robb cocktail for $87,600. No-one took advantage of this fantastic offer.

The Daily English Show has also announced it’s joining the luxury drink market. The D.E.S vodka orange is available for 1 million yen.
It’s served in a martini glass and contains vodka and orange juice and comes with a slice of orange and one ice cube.
And that was Stick News for Friday the 14th of April.

Sarah Hey Tom, how’s it going?

Tom  Hey, we’re supposed to be meeting at 7 tonight, aren’t we?

Sarah Yeah.

Tom  I’m running a bit late. So I don’t think I’ll be able to make it by 7.

Sarah O.K. Ah ... What time can you come?

Tom I can probably get there by half past 7.

Sarah O.K. Um ... Do you know how to get to the restaurant?

Tom Yeah, I’ve been there before.

Sarah O.K. then, well, we’ll just go there and you come when you can.

Tom O.K. Sorry about that.

Sarah No, no. No problem ... I think some of the other people are going to be coming a bit late too, so ... so that’s fine.

Tom O.K. See you then.

Sarah Bye.
