Are you a lady? Do you love to go out drinking, but hate always ending your nights passed out on the bar table with vomit in your hair, since you’re just too darned stupid to regulate your own alcohol consumption? (Don’t worry no one blames you, you’re just a woman, you don’t know any better!) Do you wish that there was some way for you to walk out of the bar at a reasonable hour, with your dignity intact and your dress unscathed, without ... Read More
This might strike as a funny double standard to quibble with (as it involves the ever- dubious devil's brew), but I'm interested today in the gender divisions across bar culture. As a frequenter of the, ahem, “libation establishment” – and a former bartender of two years – I like to think I know a thing or two about drinking culture. And here's the sorriest fact of things, friends: it's a  truth universally acknowledged and assumed ... Read More

Then our trivia night is the trivia night for you! Join us in Brooklyn this coming Wednesday, ... Read More
      We’ve all been taught that drinking isn’t very ladylike: my mother cautioned me as a child not to drink before I was of age because she “embarrassed herself” in her youth. I never asked any questions, and I didn’t drink more than a sip until that lychee martini I had on my 21st birthday. On the other hand, my father got made fun of for not liking alcohol in his younger days; today, people still tell him to ... Read More
Retail giant Urban Outfitters is under fire (again) for shirts that glorify drinking. Let’s ignore the fact that: 1. These shirts are dumb, and 2. These shirts are stupid, and also 3. These shirts are not clever, and pay attention to the fact that the majority of Urban Outfitters shoppers are 18-24. Ruh-oh.
