Today’s Reason To Drink

Taylor is not invited to the pub crawl.

So I’m having a little pub crawl this weekend, and I’m worried nobody is going to show up. Facebook says there are only 263 people going and 3,400 interested.


I’m actually crapping my pants and praying those numbers won’t really be accurate. I mean, who can really trust Facebook these days anyway? All people seem to post are rants about statues or quotes from poets.

What happened to the good old days of airing your dirty laundry all over social media, or picking a song that sums up your day?

Wish me luck, keep your fingers crossed that nobody shows up, and don’t blame us if there’s a line to get to the bar.

It’s Friday! Do you know where I can get some beer?

Thinking about going to that Girls Rock Louisville karaoke thing at Zanzabar tonight … but it doesn’t start until 11:30 p.m. Yikes! Can this Grandma make it that late? Depends on when I start, I suppose.

Designed by my little brother, Doug.

Here’s the first look at this year’s Gettin’ Drunky in Kentucky pub crawl T-shirt.

Don’t say I never give you exclusives.

Mark it down in your calendar: Saturday, Sept. 9, 7 p.m. at Outlook Inn.

Head to Facebook and look up the event so you can hear about the first shirt sales. It’s first come, first serve — and it’s a limited supply.

Today’s Reason To Drink

Beer is king in America.

According to the latest Gallup study, 62% of Americans drink alcohol. And of those drinkers, 40% prefer beer, 30% prefer wine and 26% prefer liquor.

But what about the 38% who don’t? You know, maybe they’ve never felt the optimism and excitement of happy hour, but I bet they fit into their pants.

Another interesting fact the study found: Less-educated and middle-income Americans tend to choose beer. Well duh. Budweiser is the lubrication of the middle class, isn’t it? This Bud is for NASCAR, Walmart and you!

Anyway, the liquor — let’s just say bourbon — statistic is the highest it’s been in the study’s 25-year history. Woot!

Knowledge is power.
