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…

Girl Talk: Everyone Saw Me Cry

“The important thing is that nobody saw you cry,” my mom kindly consoled me over the phone, after I told her how I had behaved like a drunk toddler at my friend’s wedding the night before.

“But mom, that’s just it, everyone saw me cry,” I tried to explain to her quietly, not…

The Slush Mug Is Back And Ready For Freezing!

When I was growing up, one of life’s greatest pleasures was going over to my grandmother’s house and making Coke slushies and microwaved s’mores. These days, I can still make s’mores when I’ve got the hankering, but my homemade slushie cravings have long gone unquenched because I lacked the proper device — but not anymore!

Earlier this week, Vinny was seen loading his bags into a car outside “Jersey Shore”‘s Seaside Heights house as he allegedly quit the show. Days later, The Situation stormed off, too, huffing and puffing to the paparazzi that he, “the bad guy,” was quitting, too. Drama, drama, drama.

Give Your Brew A Citrus Injection

There are few greater summertime pleasures than an ice cold beer with a freshly squeezed lime floating inside it.

Girl Talk: Why Being Drunk Is A Feminist Issue

Last weekend, I stood on the subway platform, thumbing through a magazine and grumbling about how the next train wouldn’t arrive for another 11 minutes. As I waited, more and more feet descended the stairs. Two pairs caught my attention — one was manicured with bright red polish and strapped into a sky high silver…

Girl Talk: Too Drunk To Be A Victim?

“There is no justice for drunk women,” begins Andrea Peysner’s New York Post column, “It’s Open Season For Predators In Uniform,” about the acquittal of a cop accused of raping a drunk woman in her apartment. “A Manhattan jury yesterday had to decide whom it hated more: a rotten police officer who admitted he lied,…
