When it comes to beer everyone and their mother refers to Oktoberfest as the place to be. Granted there’s no question that Oktoberfest is probably the single coolest drinking festival in the world, that doesn’t mean we don’t have our own parties here in the USA.
You’d be surprised at how much this country celebrates beer other than at fraternity parties and tailgating events. We have a strong affinity and respect for beer and some regions like to show it proudly.
Check out these 6 awesome beer festivals….
1. The World Beer Festival
If you happen to be in the Raleigh, North Carolina area you might want to check out the World Beer Festival. Oddly enough it’s a charity event (for which charity I have no idea) that showcases over 300 Southeast specialty beers from 150 national and international breweries. Get your drink on.
2. Belgium Comes to Cooperstown
You had me at Cooperstown. First of all, any excuse to get to Cooperstown is cool enough. Second of all, held on a Saturday in July, the Belgium comes to Cooperstown features over 200 Belgian style beers that visitors can sample. Plus you can dance around a bonfire!

1. Raped by a Sharpie Marker
No, this isn’t the kind of ” Sharpie Rape ” you see in most schools that really just means getting marked on by a Sharpie (a permanent marker) unexpectedly. This is actual, sexual, penetration; using a Sharpie. In 2002, seven football players from Methodist College in North Carolina were arrested on hazing charges for restraining a freshman, stripping him of his underwear, writing all over his butt and smacking it numerous times. The worst part is that to “seal the deal”, as it were, the player with the most ironic position-name, Antonio Wilkerson (wide receiver for the team) sexually assaulted the freshman athlete with a Sharpie marker after everything had been said and done. He, along with the other Methodist players involved, were suspended after their November 14 arrests and did not partake in the team’s final game; unfortunately because getting benched, or even sitting down, was probably the last thing on the victim’s mind.
2. Cocaine or Dildo: Your Choice
Sororities are just as sexually cruel, if not infinitely moreso, than Fraternities. Looking at this list, it’s apparent that the women in Sororities are more interested in emotional and social humiliation than the males. Males tend to angle towards the physical feats of strength or disgustingness. Both (freely) exercise public humiliation, but the levels of both differ and definitely run deeper in female circles. FOR EXAMPLE…
The Hazing Prevention Center, one of the leading non-profit organizations working to eradicate hazing, receives hundred of emails from traumatized victims of sorority and fraternity hazing. One e-mail was from a girl who reported that she had to either use a dildo in front of all her “sisters” or take a hit of cocaine. So it’s either your morals… or your morals? Or your common sense vs… your common sense? It’s a toss-up, but an elicit drug that can cause permanent brain damage and is HIGHLY illegal or sexual, social, public humiliation? Which would you choose?

In honor of this year’s St. Patrick’s day here is a nice little video of the history of the legendary Saint Patrick. Knowing all about him won’t cure your inevitable hangover you are going to have tomorrow morning but at least you can drop some knowledge over a couple pints of Guiness with your friends tonight. And on that note it is time to start slamming them back.

College is a wonderful time, heavy on debauchery and light on real responsibility and during those four years (or five, or six, or…) you can get away with pretty much anything. Want to wear a tutu to class in lieu of pants? Hey, why not? Want to get blitzed and streak bare ass naked through campus on a random Tuesday afternoon? Screw it, you’re young and people expect you to be wild. But then college ends, and pretty soon you find out that all those quirky things that you got away with in college aren’t looked upon quite so well in the real world. I’m not judging here –- hell, I am guilty of several of the following myself -– but here are nine things that you did in college that you can’t do in the real world without people thinking you’re pathetic.
9 Sleeping until noon every day
With some creative scheduling you can pull this off in college. People will just think you’re a party animal and will mark you as a fun guy. After all, who functions before noon? But in the real world, people will just think you’re a lazy bum, an irresponsible man child incapable of straightening up and flying right. They won’t care that you are a night owl or that you didn’t get to bed until six in the morning because you were up until dawn drunkenly riding laundry carts down a hill on campus with your friends. They’ll just shake their heads and wonder when Johnny will get himself a nice job and a cubicle to call home every morning. Look, I don’t make the rules. Maybe you shouldn’t have insisted on taking that extra class so you could graduate on time. Sucker.

How About a Tall Cool Glass of Winning? I Give You the “Tiger’s Blood with a Dash of Adonis DNA” Cocktail07 Mar 2011, written by Revelation
We found the secret to Charlie Sheen’s endless win streak: Tiger’s blood and Adonis DNA have been hacked, and the recipe is below.
A take on the traditional Bloody Mary, this cocktail was created by the mixologists at the Moroccan restaurant Fifty Five in New York City. And just like Sheen himself, the cocktail is extremely potent. Besides the Bragg Aminos to give you a protein energy kick, there’s heat from ginger, chili peppers, wasabi, and two types of radish. The Glenmorangie Sherry provides the punch, while the olive juice, citrus and balsamic vinegar kick in some high-end flavor. So grab your Goddesses, mix up a few glasses, and prepare yourself for some winning.

You’ve heard it before: Ruckus Juice, Mule Kick, Hillbilly Pop, Mountain Dew — the nicknames for moonshine, an often misunderstood spirit of Appalachian heritage. But just like your personal tastes, moonshine has also done its fair share of growing up, thanks to modern craft distillers. Now, the high-proof corn whiskey is not only legally available, but delicious to boot. And yes, it still packs a mighty wallop. Take Ole Smoky Tennessee Moonshine ($25+) for instance. The family company, based in Gatlinburg, TN follows centuries old secret recipes to create a superior moonshine using local ingredients from East Tennessee farms. Their 100 proof shine is even available with batch soaked cherries and sold in mason jars. Yee-haw, indeed. You can buy it here for just $25.
Like anything else, drinking is fun and awesome, if done in moderation. There is a very thin line from going and drinking with your friends, to becoming a full blown alcoholic and going to the bar every day after work solo and drinking until closing time. Well if you wanted to know if your excessive drinking has contributed to your city being one of the ten drunkest cities in America congratulations, keep it up.

Ben Franklin turned 305 a couple days ago and to celebrate, here’s a list of expressions meaning “inebriated” that Franklin first published in the Pennsylvania Gazette on January 6, 1737, apparently he loved getting shit faced. But first a quote from Mr. Franklin himself to get started.
“The Phrases in this Dictionary are not (like most of our Terms of Art) borrow’d from Foreign Languages, neither are they collected from the Writings of the Learned in our own, but gather’d wholly from the modern Tavern-Conversation of Tiplers. I do not doubt but that there are many more in use; and I was even tempted to add a new one my self under the Letter B, to wit, Brutify’d: But upon Consideration, I fear’d being guilty of Injustice to the Brute Creation, if I represented Drunkenness as a beastly Vice, since, ’tis well-known, that the Brutes are in general a very sober sort of People.”
The Drinkers Dictionary
He is Addled,
He’s casting up his Accounts,
He’s in his Airs.
Block and Block,
Been at Barbadoes,
Piss’d in the Brook,
Drunk as a Wheel-Barrow,
Has Stole a Manchet out of the Brewer’s Basket,
His Head is full of Bees,
Has been in the Bibbing Plot,
Has drank more than he has bled,
As Drunk as a Beggar,
He sees the Bears,
He’s kiss’d black Betty,
He’s had a Thump over the Head with Sampson’s Jawbone,

Like I’ve said before SNL just isn’t that funny anymore. The only time SNL manages to pop up around the internet is when Andy Samberg is invovled with a new SNL Digital Short, and here is a prime example. Samberg runs into Pee Wee Herman at a bar and they end up getting shit canned together, hilarity ensues.
