Curbing dangerous binge drinking on a college campus? An admirable goal. Slut-shaming women whose inhibitions melt away when soused? Not so much.
The University of Minnesota debuted a new anti-binge drinking campaign called “The Other Hangover,” which warns students to think about how their reputation will be tarnished if they do stupid things… More »
I should have known better than to meet handsome Dan at one of the seediest bars in Brooklyn, but looking into those baby blues that were a good four or five inches above mine, I couldn’t help but feel weak in the knees. He took my number and after a few texts we decided on… More »
A week before she went to jail, Lindsay Lohan did an interview and photo shoot with Vanity Fair. Now, Lohan’s sultry cover is out just days after she has been released from rehab. Well-timed, Lohan. Well-timed.
Her spiel, the blog Styleite noted, is “typical Lindsay. Denial, denial, denial.” Everything you think you know… More »
Earlier this week, Ami posted about a recent article that said it’s becoming more common for women to have the occasional drink while pregnant. We polled you on what your drinking policy would be when you’re pregnant and over 4,700 of you responded. I suspect the results were shocking no matter how you voted, in… More »
I don’t get out much.
You can tell from the way these sexy legs of mine perfectly match the white background on your computer screen.
Even worse, I don’t get out of the bedroom much. Instead, I sit cross-legged on my bed for hours on end—my laptop perched on a tray in front… More »
At a recent dinner party, my friend’s roommate poured guests another glass of white wine. It smelled crisp, cold, and juicy—clearly the sort of wine that prickles the gums, softens the face and transforms a summer evening into one soft-hued hum. She stopped at me. I held up my glass of sparkling non-alcoholic apple cider. More »
I feel like I’m always reading some new study about the best kind of alcohol to drink to help maintain your figure or even lose a few pounds. Last I remember, I was celebrating the study that found that red wine keeps you slim. But apparently that is no longer the case. … More »
We’ve come a long way from “99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall” when it comes to name-dropping alcohol in music. Today’s artists get paid big bucks to sing about certain vodkas, or have a name-brand bottle of booze appear in their videos. But then some alcohol-inspired songs seem to be purely organic, created… More »
We kind of started approving of everything Justin Timberlake does after he shed his N’Sync-era brillo pad curls and excessive denim. The upcoming ads he directed for his 901 Tequila, however, throws his infallibility back into question. Justin seems to have followed the “when in doubt, make it about sex” logic that so many… More »
L’universe de Chocolate has a new ad campaign to promote its Chocolate with Whisky truffles. No, it’s not a scantily clad woman on a bed or a happy couple enjoying a truffle while walking arm in arm. It’s a bunch of “drunk babies.” Like this little guy, who looks like he passed out in his… More »
Introducing the juice box for grown-ups: Single serving wine glasses by Wine Innovations. Here’s a classy alternative to sipping a brown-bagged beer on the commute home on the Long Island Rail Road, or toting an entire box of vino in your lunchbox. (Although we’re hoping you do neither.) The disposable packaging seals six ounces of… More »
There comes a moment (or a couple hundred) in every young woman’s life when she says to herself, Man, I wish I hadn’t been so effing drunk. Of course, the natural remedy to these scenarios would be to, um, not drink? Or, you could drink Outox. The beverage, which was released today in France, has… More »
Forget your box-o-wine, this boxed beer from Home Draught is class to the max. Buuuurrrrrp. Or not. [Notcot] … More »
At an after-party for the MTV Movie Awards on Sunday, Lindsay Lohan’s SCRAM anklet went off. The thing is supposed to monitor whether the person wearing it has any alcohol in their system, which leads us — and the judge who immediately issued a warrant for her arrest — to believe that LiLo was drinking.

Juuuust kidding. This is actually an Italian public service announcement to discourage women from drinking when there’s a bun in the oven and reads, simply, “When Mama drinks, baby drinks.” The disturbing ads, which will appear on buses, billboards and in women’s restrooms throughout the Veneto region, are in response to recent findings that 65… More »
High school and college students will go to incredibly stupid lengths to get drunk and/or high. I mean, remember the morning glory seed craze of 2009? But the latest is even worse—binge drinking … through their eyeballs. Those who pour vodka into their eyes claim that they feel the alcohol’s effects instantly. Evidently “vodka eyeballing” More »
