The Drunk Thread

post #1 of 755
Thread Starter 

I'm not drunk, but I've had two Kiltlifters tonight (anyone familiar with the brew can testify that it's one good reason for living in Arizona), and it's the first bit of alcohol I've had in a month since committing to cutting calories like crazy, and working out like a motherfucker.

 

I'm in between parties tonight, and I thought in my few moments of downtime, it might be fun to start a place for people who've been sampling libations to post their (slightly/highly) inebriated thoughts and feelings. Or thoughts and wisdoms on the art of drinking. Maybe we can cut down on the number of posts made to the depression thread, and maybe we can solve some of the problems in the "When your relationship ends" thread.

 

And hell, I think we can probably tackle some of the issues in the Politics sub-forum, too. What do you say, Chewers? Let's get toasted, and make the world a better place.

Since my relationship recently ended, I'll have more free time to focus on my drinking.

One of my wife's co-workers gave her a mason jar of strawberry moonshine, Midnight Moon, for this last Christmas. Very smooth, almost overwhelmingly sweet liqueur. Haven't gotten smashed on it, we tend to pour a few shots on the weekends with family (in laws visit frequently).

I really want a really nice bottle of premium tequila. It's the only kind of alcohol I can sip on.

I'll be over here in the corner if anyone needs me...

Drinking a few glasses of gin before my red eye back home.  I'm trying to justify that I'm just getting drunk so I can actually sleep on the plane.  In reality, I think I just want to get drunk because it's fucking awesome.

A GFC sighting.  I'll drink to that.

CHEERS TO ME!

Drunk thread? Oh ho ho HO.

 

Ho. H...hwah. Tired now, sorry. Will try again tomorrow.
 

post #9 of 755

This thread is a bit redundant for me. I'm at least half in the bag every time I post.

 

Cheers, gentlemen.

To test how drunk you are, try clicking on the thumbs up icon under my post as quickly as you can. If it takes you more than ten seconds to locate and click the icon, you're probably really drunk. Keep trying until you succeed and then go to bed.

I picked up a 1.5 pint bottle of Hop Juice Double IPA from Left Coast Brewing Co. the other day. It's been another crappy day at the office, so I popped it open and decided I would unwind with half of it.

 

I'm not even done with the glass, and my fingertips are tingly. This is some good stuff, with a nice bitter yet floral, hoppy taste to it. Highly recommended.

I am pretty fuckin' drunk. Four Peaks has re-introduced their Bourbon-Barrel Kiltlifter, and our very cute waitress told us that they had a standing competition to see who could sell the most of it is, so... yeah.

 

Absolutely amazing take on an already great beer. And the cute waitress bailed on us when her shift was over, without even telling us that we helped her win the contest. So, that was a bummer.

post #13 of 755

On Thursday, I picked up a new beer (Bell's something-something) and while it wasn't "bad" per se, it was a bit too hoppy for my taste. 

 

 

So obviously, I drank the whole six pack in a sitting, so that those last couple wouldn't be lingering in the fridge. I believe this to be an excellent example of heading a potential problem off at the pass.

I won't say that "never hit on the server" is a hard-and-fast man-law, but "never expect it to amount to anything, no matter how flirtatious s/he is being" is probably a solid rule of thumb. 

 

 

I don't frequent Hooters, mainly because when I'm shoving wings/fries/beer down my gullet as fast as possible, the LAST thing I want is a theoretically* hot woman in a skin-tight outfight hanging out pretending she's interested in talking to me. Also, the food is overpriced and just OK, and once I was there with a big group and they stopped selling us beer because apparently they have some RIDICULOUS rule where they won't serve you more pitchers of beer than there are people at the table (i.e. if you're hanging out watching the game, and there are four of you, you can only order 4 pitchers total during your time there). 

 

 

* - at the Hooters I've been to, the talent on display really hasn't been all that exceptional

No one adheres to that rule more firmly than I do. I won't hit on any woman who's on the job, unless she's giving me unquestionable cues. Just thought it was kind of lame that we won the contest for her, and she didn't even stick around to close our tab.

I've never actually been to Hooters, but someone once brought over some Hooters chicken wings, and they were great.

 

I'm just saying, don't put down their chicken wings.

 

Carry on.

post #19 of 755

 I'm over Hooters. I'm not going to eat overpriced food because a hottie in shorts serves it. I'm just not that easily amused anyone.

 

 I'm currently drinking a Yuengling, but I'm a fan of PBR. While I do like that its cheap, I think it tastes great. I find it offensive that its stocked next to crap like Keystone.

 

 One of my simply pleasures is to drink while watching concert DVDs.

We have a chain hereabouts called Buffalo Wild Wings (I know they're regional, not sure if they're national) - their wings CRUSH Hooters. 

post #21 of 755

The absolute best chicken wings I've ever had were at a wedding. I couldn't believe the flavors these wings had. I still miss them and remember that September day fondly.

post #22 of 755

NEVER buy absinthe. 

 

 

Not that it's terrible, or anything, but if you aren't a fan of anisette, it sits in you liquor cabinet and mocks your manhood for the better part of a year - "that poof Wilde would have finished me in 2 days, why is it taking you 8 months?" etc. 

post #23 of 755

I tried it once and I REALLY didn't like it.

post #24 of 755

Someone gave me a bottle of Templeton Rye.  Said I would try it Saturday night when I had a free few hours to just enjoy it.  Saturday night comes by and already half of the bottle is gone...like I could wait 5 days for that awesomeness.  

post #25 of 755

Absinthe is vile.  That licorice taste is simply repulsive.

It's not something I'd drink on a regular basis, but I enjoy absinthe.

I very recently discovered Bulleit Bourbon.  I am convinced that it will be the death of me.  That is some tasty, tasty stuff.

Haven't tried their Bourbon, but LOVE their Rye.

 

How sweet is the Bourbon?  I tend to avoid  it, since I have a strong aversion to Jack Daniels.

I have a bottle of the Bulleit Rye as well.  It's OK, but nowhere near the GIMME GIMME I NEED I NEED I NEED factor of the bourbon.

 

I don't find it to be too sweet at all.  I don't particularly care for Jack Daniels either, so you might really like the bourbon.

Bought a bottle of the Bourbon, and it's the exact opposite for me.  Love the rye, could drink it neat any time, but I find the bourbon just okay.  Should make a great Old Fashioned, and it is nice and smooth.

I always run out of rep when I read the forum after I've been drinking.

 

So many people just benefited from my weakness.

It's me and Svedka tonight. Svedka. Oh, Svedka, Svedka, Svedka, my dear Svedka. As quickly as you go into me, you come back out of me. (Not as puke, I know how to handle my shit.)

 

I generally go through a handle about every week and a half or so. Is this too much? It is not for you or me to say, perhaps not even God. It simply is.

 

Beers, too. Gotta chase them shots. Good beer is nice, but 'Gansett will do.

What's a good beer in the US?
post #37 of 755

That's a pretty heavy question bro.

 

My go to affordable choices lately are Harpoon IPA and Porkslap Pale Ale. If I feel like spending a little more, a variety pack from Left Hand out in Oregon. It goes on from there...
 

post #38 of 755

Beer from any of these guys are good:

And this is fantastic:

I owe Judas an apology, the Bulleit Bourbon is really growing on me.

PBR gets shit in some circles for being a "hipster" beer, but as a certified* beer snob, I think that if you're going cheap + drinkable, PBR is a pretty solid choice. Definitely prefer it to most of the swill BudMillerCoors sends our way (fun fact - PBR is actually brewed under contract by Miller Brewing)

Had 3(possibly 4) of my margaritas last night; woke up missing my pants.

Tequila, I've missed you, my old friend.
post #42 of 755

Fuck y'all. I'm on the wrong side of two bottles of Chardonay.

 

I've had to move back in with me folks about 3 weeks ago and I'm half in contact with my proper ex who I should have married, but who now is married and has a little baby boy.

 

I feel like a proper fucking loss, but don't worry I'm about to man-up sometime about now.

 

Fuck it. Fuck it all..

 

Love you CHUD.

Well I've just seen that drunk post from me (about 5 up) and all I can say is when the fuck did I start drinking Chardonnay? Have no recollection of posting that.

Belated thanks for the concern folks.

Eesh.

It's alright, mate. The Internship came out that month. It was a terrible month for all of us back in 2013.

Yeah. June of last year fucking sucked for me, too. I ended up on a short tailspin that you can all read about in the "When Your Relationship Ends" thread, if you're so inclined to do some digging. Though, I don't know why you would be. Sadly, I'm still feeling the ramifications of what went down in June, almost a year later.

 

Anyway, I'm at home and on the other side of an IPA, a Kiltlifter, and witnessing the absolute worst, most depressing Guns N Roses cover band I've ever seen. Like, if that neighbor you avoid grew a Hulk Hogan mustache, threw on some extensions and a bandana, and forgot all the words to Night Train and instead just made screeches and guttural noises into the mic... it would be better than what I just saw.

 

Never go to biker bars, kids. They are the most soul-sucking, spirit-shattering places on earth.
