Dinner with the dentist. After dinner coffee, sugar cubes laced with LSD unbeknown to them. John later thought he was trying to get an orgy going.
At the dinner party in March/April 1965: John and Cynthia, George and Pattie, John Riley (the dentist) and Cyndy Bury.

Yes, that’s right, @Ron Nasty.
It seems awful that John Riley would give them LSD without informing them beforehand.
Really awful. And Pattie suspected that John Riley was guilty of more than that:
No matter what he was going to do in our mouths, he would give us intravenous valium. All of the Beatles went to him and we took it for granted that this was what happened – no one questioned it. We would go into a deep sleep and wake up not knowing what he had done. I watched him trying to revive George once by slapping his face. It was sinister – he could have been doing anything to us while we were out

My hot take is that after the Beatles split they went down the paths of spiritualism, solipsism, alcoholism, and Paul McCartney
