Anthony Bourdain Recalls His Craziest ‘Trip’ in The Catskills
If you've run out of things to watch on your favorite streaming service during quarantine, don't worry. Netflix released a new show that takes you on one heck of a trip.
The latest release from Netflix called Have a Good Trip: Adventures in Psychedelics follows a bunch of random celebrities as they tell their craziest acid trip stories. Yes, you read that right. The stories are then acted out by other well-known actors or animated segments.
The late and great chef Anthony Bourdain, who had several ties to the Hudson Valley and Catskill area, is featured in the show.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Bourdain recounts his wildest acid trip that took place in the Catskills. In his episode, he talks about heading up to the Catskills with a friend who just got his permit and they packed the essentials "LSD, weed, Lebanese hash, gin, beer, and quaaludes."
Bourdain continues and explains the guys picked up two attractive women saying "They were exotic dancers. One of them identified herself as Panama Red."
He continues and reminisces on the detour they took to one of the girls' houses where they took "industrial-strength" quaaludes. One of the ladies then proceeds to fall on the ground and is not moving. Bourdain starts to think he's going to jail because he thinks the woman is dead.
Thankfully, the woman pops back up as if nothing happened at all and they continue on with their trip.
Have a Good Trip: Adventures in Psychedelics is now available for streaming on Netflix.
