Girl Talk: Don’t Judge Me For Not Drinking

I ran with a pretty tame crowd as a high schooler. We considered it a wild night if  we’d wrapped a musical theater production and all piled into someone’s basement to watch the entire Star Wars trilogy on VHS and surreptitiously make out with each other. I liked it that way, and never sought out anything… More »


Care For A Nice Frothy Glass Of Santorum?

Rick Santorum suspended his GOP presidential campaign yesterday, but we all know more anti-gay, anti-woman asshattery is probably still forthcoming.

On The Rocks

As springtime comes, it’s time to start thinking about all the parties you’ll be throwing and the booze you’ll be consuming.

My Carnival: Blue Body Paint, Blood Poisoning & Beenie Man

Every year, my sister and I go to Carnival in Trinidad and Tobago. For years I have tried to to explain the concept of “carnival” to my American friends.

Dear Prudence Advice Columnist Suggested Possibly-Date Raped Woman Is “Trying To Ruin Someone Else’s Life”

“Trying to ruin someone else’s life is a poor way to address one’s alcohol and self-control problems.”

No, Dear… More »

Who Actually Drinks GIRL Liquor, Alcohol “For Women Only”?

A reader snapped a pic of something freaky at the Zurich airport: GIRL, a lychee strawberry liquor “for women only.”  Let me tell you something: if you bring a big purple bottle of fruity liquor to a party, you’re not getting invited back.

5 Ways To Drink Bourbon

My first bourbon experience was at a dark bar in New Orleans, where I ordered “bourbon, on the rocks” because I thought it would make me sound cool. I took one sip and started retching, so the bartender put a sympathetic shot of cola in my glass. “Try it like this,” he said, and I… More »
