Barbarian Drinkfest: Be There the Ides of March
It's time for another Bay Area Regional Bloggers and Readers night out. Let's meet up on Wednesday, the 15th of March, at Ben & Nick's Bar & Grill , at 6 PM until Bart closes.
I know it's a school night but we want to start before all the amateurs come out for St. Paddy's day.
Which makes me think of this interesting essay I found at Waiter Rant about What Your Drink Says About You, here a select few of his observations:
Cosmopolitan – Prissy, over ordered and passé. Favored by Manolo Blahnik wearing Candace Bushnell devotees who spend all their money on shoes but live in rathole apartments. Rapidly becoming an old lady drink.
Sidecar – The last time you got laid was 1932.
Chardonnay – You know what you like. Boring. Predictable. The Missionary Position of White Wine.
Pinot Grigio – You’re pretentious or don’t know what you like. You follow the herd. The Circle Jerk of White Wine
Chocolate Martini – You’re immature or have a sweet tooth. Good for masking the taste of Roofies.
Vodka on the Rocks – You want to get drunk as fast as possible.
Gin neat – Only for mad dogs and Englishmen.
Campari and Soda – You’re a gourmand. A good aperitif. A bitter drink for bitter people.
Manhattan – Old fogey drink. Stuffy. Where did I put the bitters?
Sweet Vermouth on the Rocks – You’re so old that if you’re not already in the grave you soon will be.
Pinot Noir – You’ve seen Sideways. Nuff said.
Galliano –You’re a waterbed, lava lamp, reel to reel, gold chain wearing, wall to wall shag carpet loving, swinging 70’s disco fool.
Gimlets – You’re old fashioned and like to drink. Usually the libation of classy cerebral babes"
Rob Roy – You’re an alcoholic.
Margarita – You’re fun, good in bed, and naughty with a sense of style. If you don’t have it with salt you’re a wimp.
Shirley Temple – What? Are you five years old? On the wagon? Get the fuck outta here.
Bloody Mary – You need an excuse to start drinking before lunch.
Mint Julep – You’re a hospitable Southern guy/gal. Good stuff. Rarely ordered.
Tequila – You’re not afraid of spending a little time in jail.
Champagne – You’re reserved, classy, or a stripper.
Vodka Red Bull - Party person, young, possible cokehead.
Southern Comfort –Where’d you put the Lynyrd Skynyrd eight tracks? I know I saw ‘em around here somewhere.
Mojito – You’re not afraid to try new things, have low frustration tolerance and are prone to wild rages.
Rum and Coke – You’ve been arrested for assault once or twice.
