This DGAF Strategy Is the Only Way to Win the Dreaded Bouquet Toss

As a dude, I'm biased, but I love the bouquet toss at weddings. Not only because I'm usually so drunk I can't feel my teeth, but also because it's the only game you can win (existentially speaking, anyhow).

How to Drink All Night at the Holiday Party and Not Be That Guy

Listen, drinking all night is not healthy. But it's holiday party season, that perfect storm of open bar and all of your colleagues waiting to see who will be this year's obnoxious, puking, passed out and/or dead person at the party. Don't be that guy. » 12/12/14 5:00pm 12/12/14 5:00pm

MEMO: There's a Bourbon Shortage, Stock Up

It pains me to have to type that there may actually be a bourbon shortage, but we'll get through this together. The most important question to ask ourselves: Is this news real or bullshit? » 11/26/14 6:35pm 11/26/14 6:35pm

Study Says We Hit the Bottle Harder on Gym Days

If you have ever been compelled to have a cold one of a few after one of those really intense workouts (something to which I am completely and utterly unaccustomed—the exercise, that is), know that you're not alone. » 9/23/14 3:10pm 9/23/14 3:10pm

The Drunken Lawless Masses Are Menacing Commercial Flights

There is a lot to feel anxious about when traveling by air: you are in a sealed metal container hurtling through the sky; there could be a supernatural menace lurking in the cargo hold; sometimes they play reruns of Two and a Half Men on the little in-flight TVs.... Increasingly, though, a different type of terror… » 8/01/14 4:00pm 8/01/14 4:00pm

Drinking Red Bull and Vodka Makes You Want More Red Bull and Vodka

Middle-Aged Party Moms Can Drink Boring Young Ladies Under the Table

Now that I'm hurtling toward my middle-thirties, I don't drink nearly as much as I used to. I got drunk once this week—on Sunday, by accident, kind of—and three days later my head still feels like it got screwed on sideways, I started crying because my boyfriend was "making a weird face" and wouldn't admit it, and I… » 6/04/14 3:45pm 6/04/14 3:45pm

Science Proves that Beer Goggles Are Real, But Are They Really So Bad?

Bad news, frat boys. (Or good news? I'm not sure.) It turns out, according to a new study, that "beer goggles"—that thing where you get wasted and then you accidentally think that ugly people are hot and then you wake up the next day like, "GROSS! A MONSTER!" because you are inherently better and more valuable than… » 5/14/14 12:30pm 5/14/14 12:30pm

Cider Is Fucking Awesome. End of Story.

This has been a winter of cider-shame. Shame at glancing down at the recycling in my apartment only to note that its only contents are dozens and dozens of empty bottles of Angry Orchard cider. Shame at ordering cider at a bar in front of people ordering cocktails. Shame at being gingerly handed a tall blue can of… » 5/01/14 4:50pm 5/01/14 4:50pm

Wine Time With Mindy Kaling, Marissa A. Ross and a Delicious Pillow

Mindy Kaling sat down for Marissa A. Ross's "Wine Time" series to take a crack at wine-tasting. The two, dressed like Paul Giamatti and Thomas Haden Church from Sideways because duh, indulged in a Francis Ford Coppola Diamond Collection (which sounds more like a Godfather-themed crystal figurine set at Kay Jewelers)… » 3/19/14 10:40am 3/19/14 10:40am
