The beast stirs up a toxic storm and this time is deadly.
We were at: irish House, Quest Mall, Kolkata
What were we doing there: Sipping on cocktails made Batsman Chris Gayle
What was he doing there: Promoting McDowell’s, Black Dog, Ciroc and Smirnoff
When was the tremor felt: 7-8 pm on 7/04/15
Kolkata was ornamented with all the star frenzy last night, on Tuesday, as the IPL season kickstarted. But former KKR player, now a Royal Challenger, Chris Gayle skips the opening ceremony to spend time with fans. Punctual and non-fussy Gayle reaches the Irish House and chooses a spot right behind the bar. He interacts with ‘fellow’ bartenders and clears his station. Dressed in a plain black t shirt and dark blue denims, Gayle accessorises with gold chains and cross.
What BlabberCat loved:
Especially for BlabberCat, Gayle made ‘Frisky’ a strong Whisky cocktail that was truly a heady experience.
The other cocktails that he made were: Smirnoff Licorice, Black Dog Punch and Ciroc Martini, all are available at Irish House.
When the beast is not hunting: We observed Gayle to be very relaxed, patient, calm and understanding. He broke into laughter frequently that made everyone smile. He put in a lot of effort to entertain the ladies surrounding him and ended up being quite the flatterer. He stole a glance at the television once-in-a-while to keep track of the opening ceremony which he was missing out on. He snacked on Chicken nuggets and orange juice while obliging people with selfies and small talk.
After Irish House Gayle had to go to M Bar where he turned DJ and shook a leg for the already-love-struck fans. The stormy evening finally came to a still only to remind us that this is just the beginning. IPL season 8, 2015 has a lot more in store for us.
