Drugs, Alcohol, Celebrities And Television Can Be A Deadly Combination


Jet lag? I think not. In this 2007 interview to promote “ER” in Australia, John Stamos was clearly wasted out of his mind. In fact, the first word out of his mouth was “vodka.” He followed it up by reading the host’s lines off the teleprompter and making crude gestures. Two years later,…

The ad is for Australian brewery Jamieson’s raspberry ale which is being marketed as “anything but sweet.” The thing is, the company behind it, The Foundry, forgot to ask Disney’…

Will You Tell Your Kids You Didn’t Inhale?

This is the most bad-ass story my mom has to tell you: Before she married my dad, she dated a guy who rode a motorcycle and she smoked a puff of marijuana with him. She didn’t get high. The End! My dad has never smoked pot, ever, and neither parent experimented with any other drugs.

Are Women Too Insecure To Have Sober Sex?

Do Women Prefer Doin’ It While Drunk?

Who hasn’t had a drink or two before hopping in the sack? I’ll be the first to admit that I’ve been guilty. I mean sex—especially with a new person—can be a daunting task. A nice little buzz can help alleviate some stress or spice things up a bit, right? But hold on one second before…

Starbucks May Start Selling Booze, Too

Because Starbucks doesn’t already take enough of my money, the coffee chain announced it may start selling beer and wine in addition to coffee. Starbucks is currently serving alcohol during the evenings at one of its coffee shops in Seattle and if that pilot program is successful, the company could open others. However, their store…

Sexy Tina Vodka Embraces Nature’s Nectar

It’s already a concern when you’re swigging straight from the bottle. It’s a whole other problem, however, if the bottle is this Sexy Tina Milky Vodka. A Russian variety, this breast-shaped container is just asking for the drinker to put his lips to it. (“Milky vodka” apparently refers to Irish Cream.) If you’re going to…

What Does Fashion Taste Like? Vodka, According To NYC Bar Local 138

Fad drugs may come and go, but drinking will always stay in style. Which is perhaps why NYC bar Local 138 asked fashion designers to concoct cocktails for its summer drink menu.

Booze 101: Stock A Liquor Cabinet Like A Big Girl

Certain things go out of style, but a classic martini isn’t one of them. So, if your idea of liquid entertainment is a pitiful six-pack of Bud Lite, you might want to educate yourself in the language of liquor. (You can get drunk as part of this, but please wait until the end of the…

France Bans “Le Open Bar” to Curb Binge Drinking. Sacre Bleu!

After prohibiting smoking in bars in January, the French government is now cracking down on other vices by banning open bars and happy hours.

Does Alcohol Make Men Better In The Bedroom?

The next time your man blames booze on his inability to, uh, rise to the occasion, you might want to tell him about this recent survey that suggests otherwise. Researchers in Australia discovered that alcohol actually improves rather than hinders a man’s performance in the bedroom. In a study of 1,580 men, drinkers reported 30%…

Excuse Me, Bartender? There A Piece of A** In My Drink

In the land of booze, there’s no doubt that sex sells. We’re used to seeing the half-clad woman on a billboard, covering her crotch with a bottle of vodka. But why do we combine drink names with sex? Is it because of the good laugh we all have when asking a hot bartender, “Can you…
