The Wed or Dead Wager: USA


I hope you are sitting down because here is some seriously exciting news.

The Wed or Dead Wager and a mystery guest are crossing the pond for the first great American adventure. Not just a tourist trip or even a shopping trip.

We are going to visit the big apple to meet women.

Yes it’s a going to be a dating-tastic week of misadventure and delight.

Will Biscuit meet someone who can sustain his interest?
Will Toast faint when surrounded by so many American women?
We will find out in February.

We will be packing laptops so we will continue to report on what happens as it happens.

If you know somewhere good to go, or even know someone who one of us should meet for coffee in Central Perk then please let us know.

I’ve never been to New York, actually none of us have, so we only have films and TV shows as a guide for what it is like. I expect we will probably solve some crimes while we are there, join the mafia, date Snooki and then fall in love at the top of the Empire State building.

After all it’s New York, anything could happen.

    Yaay! And you’ve persuaded Scalene as well! Looking forward to reading the results. Does the US know what’s about to hit it? Am visualising it being like that guy in Love, Actually…

    As a female New Yorker, I will say that, in general, we love British accents… yes, a bit like Love, Actually :)

    Have a great first trip to NYC! You’ll love it. I don’t have many single girlfriends anymore to have you meet and am in a relationship myself, but feel free to email me at ifuseekamy2010@gmail.com if you need recommendations.

    Poor toast and biscuit. The Hotchtic effect is approximately a 11 to 12 hour drive away from your landing point.

    Go here at the very least:

    I can suggest many other things, but that’s a classic.

    I will email you a list of excellent date spots. Unfortunately, February will not be acceptable for lovely walks through Central Park. However, one of you must ABSOLUTELY take a proper candidate on a carraige ride through the park. They supply big, warm blankets to cover up with while riding in the cold. (can make for an interesting ride)

    (ahem.) That is fabulous. If the 3 of you British cousins are coming, I MUST join in the fun. It’s only about 3 hours by train. :)

    Are you 3 hooking up (not literally) with Dates of Wrath whilst you’re over there? Japery and liver destruction guaranteed. Plus Air knows some awesome places.

    I am rather excited about this. I have been drawing up plans to rake in all the cash from whatever source I can, legitimate or otherwise.

    I mean… you TOTALLY don’t need TWO kidneys, right?

  10. January 8, 2011 at 5:50 am

    you cut off like…five years of your life with having only one kidney. sell a piece of your liver. that’ll heal itself. plus, if you’re going to a different country, i figure you’ll the piece of liver with alcohol, so you might as well make money off of it.

    Oh lord! Fun potential.

    I’ll ping you an email, let’s see if we can do something fun with this.

    Molly – I don’t think either one of us knows what will happen (America or the boys). It will be an adventure what ever happens.

    IfUseekAmy – I’m just organising stuff now, yes I’ll hit you up for recommendations we are going to try and avoid most of the tourist traps. If London is like New York you need a guide to point you in the right direction when it comes to nights out.

    LA – 12 hours? We will be there for a week, even if you drive slowly you should be able to make it. HOTCHTIC ROAD TRIP!

    K – Will do, just reading the website made me need to hit the treadmill.

    Eyebrows – We could, but if we out ourselves this blog wouldn’t really work anymore. I’ll try and take some shots with us not in them for atmosphere.

    Wicked Shawn – We would like all the advice you can give, as you can imagine.

    TxtMrDarcy – Yes! That would be hillarious.

    SundaeGirl – That would be a brilliant idea.

    Biscuit – Good work. SELL EVERYTHING.


    AIR – Excellent yes we should do something, I’m sure New York dating is very different to London, so any help/advice/warnings would be welcome.
