Cooler than ice


So, erm, no penguins?

I'd be lying if I say visitng Minus 5 wasn't the biggest highlight of my Sydney trip. What? Not Krispy Kreme, you say?
So yea, the whole bar is made out of ice and the temperature wasn't -5, mind you. It was -14 when we entered.
They dress you up with thick fur coats and gloves and shut you in a lounge for 30 minutes. You get a free cocktail.
I guess any more than 30 minutes you'd get hypothermia or pheumonia. Towards the end my nose and fingers hurt.
There's this device that hangs around your neck. When the time's up it starts blinking and vibrating.
It'd be interesting if you were short.
