Joe Thursday Jan 17 02:03 PM
Is that a product placement in your hotel or are you just glad to see me

And there are several in Iceland that are built at the beginning of every winter, recieve guests, etc, etc, and then melt away as summer arrives, only to be entrely rebuilt the next year.

Is is just me or does the entrance to the Ice hotel look like one of those Absolut ads?

It's definitely not just you ... that was Joe's point in the second post in this thread.

I think I saw some sort of thing of the Travel channel a while ago where they visited this place. You sleep in fur beds and they have a bar where the cups are made entirely of ice.

I imagine ice cups would be awesome at keeping your drink cool, but I would think your hands would get damn cold too.

Well, it's not milk they were drinking, it was Vodka - that way they can pour you a drink that won't melt your cup.
dave Friday Jan 18 06:03 PM
Hmm. Correct me if I'm wrong, but if you pour something that is warmer than 32ºF/0ºC on some ice, it's going to at least partially melt it, correct?

That's the whole point of it being alcohol, it can be chilled below the freezing point of water and still stay liquid.
