As all those who've been on a J1 will know – the legal drinking age in the US is a sometimes irritating 21 years.
Which might well pose a problem for anyone – no matter who they are – wishing to herald their 18 years with a champagne toast.
In fact, we've been wondering how a certain Kylie Jenner, who – finally! – turns 18 on August 10, will mark her milestone birthday… considering clubs and bars in her homeland are out.
Well, it has now been revealed that she's come up with a simple solution: jetting out of the United States and hitting Canada, where several provinces boast an 18-and-over alcohol policy.
Yes, Kylie is throwing a mega-bash at Beach Club in Montreal. Basically, it's Canada’s answer to Ibiza – a mini party island with a beach, pool, A-list DJs and lots of booze.
And rather than spending the night necking alcopops and doing shots at the bar while sporadically dipping into cocktail sausages and spicy potato wedges, Kylie's being paid €175,000 by Olivier Primeau, the club's owner, just to show up.
In fact, the reality TV star will be choppered in, landing on a luxury boat that will dock next to a table stocked with bubbly. She'll also celebrate with a giant €2,750 cake.
The venue itself is already gearing up for the unveiling: yesterday Oliver Primeau posted an image of bottles of Moet champagne signed by the famous revellers who have previously partied at Beach Club.
"The collection is about to get bigger," he said via his own account. "Can you guess who we're going to announce next?"
Sounds like it's going to be a night to remember.
