I'd say this is a site for us, but it seems to be male-dominated in that detestable Maxim magazine kind of way.

Hello, new members!
We're very lazy and don't update the community often. Obviously.

Because I am currently out of work, I've had to resort to some drastic measures to get myself sufficiently tipsy over the past few weeks ... thought I'd share my advice.
- Have two or three of your favorite beer in rapid succession, then switch to PBR tallboys. If anything, you'll think you're drinking water. If PBR is your favorite beer, we might have to do an intervention. Drinking beer isn't just about getting drunk - you must enjoy the taste of it above before all else.
- Don't eat much (but preferably nothing) if you suspect an evening of alcoholic debauchery will be taking place in the near future. People might call you a cheap drunk, but hell, at least you'll be drunk.
- Start drinking about an hour and a half before the sun goes down. You'll be shitfaced at a decent hour (instead of two o'clock in the morning). You can then go home, be in bed by ten-thirty, and still get up and do what you've got to do the next day with a minimal hangover. The earlier you start, the more time you have to sleep it off!

Having been recently reminded that I'm co-owner of this community, I will celebrate that fact and issue a PSA of sorts:
Australian wine = good.
New Zealand... ish? wine = v. v. bad.
Really. This stuff makes the baby Jesus cry. It tastes like Chardonnay that hasn't bathed in a while. But dammit, I paid 10 whole dollars for it, so I'm going to drink it. Or perhaps not drink it, and just keep it around as an emergency supply. Because emergency alcohol supplies are very good to have, especially when it's winter in Massachusetts and you can't buy beer at the grocery store. Bitter? Me? Never.

I might have to leave the community ... I had five beers Friday night, only to get a raging hangover that lasted until eight p.m. on Saturday.

I am seriously out of practice.

Hey, nicomaureen: can you believe we have this many members?

kittycat159 i am pleased to have found that many have such a profound love for THE beer, shiner. you would think every texan would have had at least one, but it seems rare in the far west (El Paso).

I don't know if anyone pays any attention to this anymore, but . . .
My boyfriend has a sinus infection, so he thought it would be a good idea to drink a Corona (at least to put himself out of his misery, to paraphrase). I said, "But wouldn't you rather have a hot buttered rum?" I got right to it, even though the reasons were a bit selfish . . .
Because the holiday season is right around the corner (according to Wal-Mart, anyway), I thought it would be an excellent idea to post this fine recipe from www.food.com. It says it serves 12, but I doubt that very much. Here goes:

1 stick unsalted butter, softened
2 cups light brown sugar (I'd put a bit more, personally)
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
pinch ground clove (I used some allspice instead of the nutmeg and clove - you be the judge)
pinch salt (as we only had salted butter, I passed on this)
lots o'dark rum

Cream butter and spices together. Refrigerate until firm. Spoon ~2 tbs of mixture into mug. Add 3oz rum (ha!) and top off with boiling water. Stir - unless you're planning to drink it all in one go.

2:06 pm - Alcohol Review 2004

rutabaga
I know there are a few of you out there who aren't very adventurous in the alcohol department: you know what you like and stick to it . . . or perhaps you avoid certain drinks entirely because they have some sort of negative connotation)? I've been guilty of both, but trust me when I say that with roughly $50 and a group of friends who won't rag your ass for too long, you can have a lovely evening exploring the complexities of all sorts of "spiritous" beverages. Here are my recent forays into the "girly" department:

Smirnoff Ice Green Apple Somethin'-or-Other
They must be using Nashville as a test market for this because I went to the Smirnoff Ice site and they're pretty much disavowing any knowledge of such a drink. Adam found some at the Circle K on Belmont a few weeks ago, and holy shit, it's tasty. It's like a green apple Jolly Rancher - only you drink it and it has the ability to make you drunk. If you're lucky enough to come across it, buy some. I highly suggest it for situations in which you want to be inebriated but don't want to taste the alcohol.

Cherry Bomb
This is normally served as a shooter, but I see no reason why you can't have it as a drink. Of course, those of you with penises may feel more comfortable drinking it quickly . . . but either way, it's good. You must have Xtreme cherry vodka and Red Bull. Like another of my favorite shots (the Car Bomb), you just drop your cherry vodka - shot glass and all - into the Red Bull and guzzle. Mmmmmmmmmm.

Pineapple Upside-Down Cake
Once again, a shooter that makes a damn good drink. All's you need's some vanilla vodka (if you're planning to make this as a shot, don't waste your vanilla Stoli or Grey Goose - get Smirnoff Vanilla Twist or similar), a splash of pineapple juice, and a dash of grenadine. Shake your vodka and your p.a. juice with ice, strain, and add the grenadine (which, ideally, will float on the bottom). This must be my favorite shot of all time.

I had more drinks to share, but I'm actually getting kind of bored (or thirsty . . .).

10:23 pm - New Member raves about Shiner

zadriana
This is probably old news, but as a Shiner Fan, I must post.
When Shiner Light came out, my two drinking partners and I were a bit let down.
How could the citizens of Shiner, Texas bring another light beer into existance whild compromising the name of Shiner, whose beer I trust implicitely.

Thank God, it was good. Not only was it good, but it stuck to it's guns, and didn't let anyone down.

I heartily approve of Shiner. And as such, I will now proceed to drink some.

My regular bar, a place called Valhalla in Houston, has $.85 12oz of Shiner on tap. Which isn't bad. They also have Lone Star and St. Arnolds.

You'll find me there every Tuesday night.

So here's to beer.

6:57 pm - hello

utilitarian
I just started drinking again after a 14week stoppage because of school, got way to drunk to much last spring so i had to take a break this fall to bring the old GPA back up..but i'm back on the wagon and lovin it, well i was for 2 days till i got my wisdom teeth pulled, but this weekend i will be back and hittin it hard...


just thought i'd tell you about the best weekday special i have ever seen: In Sheboygan Falls Wi, there is the bar called The Ostedler, and on Wednesday night they have a 9$ all you can drink taps special. The great thing about their taps is that they don't have any domestics on tap.. Newcastle, Guinness, Harp, Bass, in season Leine's, Goose Island, Blue Moon, just to name a few...Needless to say during the summer me and my work buddies went there every wednesday night and spent our 9 bucks and drank a shit load of beer, and then we came walked home, about a 10 min walk to kohler where i am from..and Tore down "Welcome to KOHLER" signs that we then had to spend 3 hrs the next day replacing because that was our job...Great times, and out bosses never figured it out...But anyways, if you are ever in eastern WI and want to get a great deal let me know and we will got get fucked up on the best beers in the land for 9 dollars.

nicomaureen, do you still have a copy of the bar tab to end all bar tabs? I lost mine in Adam's car.
For those of you who don't know, that was the night when Sarah and I had a $140 tab between the two of us. Even if we hadn't been drinking at Opryland, it still would've been around $70. Obviously, we are very proud of ourselves, so much that we kept the tab as testament to our drinking abilities.

4:19 pm - Drunken n00b..

holyguacamole
Hi there. I'm Tommy. I'm 21. I live right outside of Montgomery, AL (saddening, yes..) and I'm faithfully bonded with my life-partner, Newcastle Brown Ale. Never thought I would find a community on LJ to post about drunken escapades, but here it is, and I am impressed. Glory be to those who've made this possible.

Now, with that out of the way.. drunken glory story!

Went with a few of my friends to this pool hall we always hang out at in Montgomery called The Breakroom.. where they serve Newcastle on tap. Fucking beautiful, it is. The bartender at this place knows me by name and always knows what I'm up there for. Also fucking beautiful. So anyway.. to make a long story short, I ended up drinking the equivilant to 3 pitchers (give or take a 10 oz. mug), getting really pissed off for some reason (I'm by no means an angry drunk.. I can't even remember why I got pissed), and tried to walk home (around a 2 hour walk from where I was) in 30 degree weather. My friend ended up talking me into coming back inside, so I passed out in a pool of beer on the table-type deal they have set up in the middle of the place until it was time to leave. Ended up sobering up sitting on the computer somewhere around 5 this morning and I've been here ever since. I'd rather be drinking..

To comment on that phrase I just typed, I take a line from good ol' That 70's Show:

"Kelso, every lameo hippie in the history of time has used that quote."

7:36 pm - hair of the dog

nicomaureen
So I woke up at 8 this morning on my couch, with all my clothes on, the TV blaring, and a plate in my lap containing a half-eaten chik pattie. This is what happens to you when you drink for 9 hours straight. I stumbled up to my room, shut off my angry alarm clock, and fell into bed. Woke up 2 hours later, dying of thirst. I went to the kitchen and found that the gallon jug of grape gatorade still had a few cups left in it, so I took it back to bed with me and drank up. Around 11:30 I awoke yet again, gatorade jug still in hand, to AZ blaring James Brown at maximum volume. I kicked the wall and tried to go back to sleep, but it was useless. I got up and showered and ate a veggie burger, then discovered that not only was there not a drop of milk in the house, my cigarettes had gone missing at some point during the night. I hiked down to Mickey Mart where I purchased half a gallon of milk, half a gallon of ice cream, and a pack of cigarettes. I ate a giant bowl of ice cream and played Tricky for a couple of hours (very very badly), then ate most of the cereal in the house with my new-found milk. Played more Tricky, watched Real World and Monster House with Lyci, then went over to Justin's where we were going to start brewing beer. Downed a very large Mike's Hard Lemonade. Then, and only then, did I start to feel normal again. But looks like I'll be recovered for Robin's party tonight. I can feel my liver cowering in terror.

current mood: semi-normal at last

10:44 am - Friendly reminder

nicomaureen
Yup, it's Friday, and you know what that means! All of you must do your duty to the community and get slobbering drunk tonight! Yay! If any of you Obies wanna hit up happy hour at the Feve, drop me a line. Incidentally, I've noticed that a bunch of people have joined, which is fucking awesome, but I sadly have no idea who some of you are, so if you wouldn't mind introducifying yourselves, it would make me happy. I mean, you're perfectly welcome to lurk for the rest of your life, but that wouldn't be any fun, would it?

As you were.

current mood: sleepy
