I'm Engish, Irish, German, and French - I drink all of those lol.
Not a fan of light beer. I worked for the marketing company responsible for the PBR comeback about 10 years ago.
Yes, I admit it - hipsters are partly my fault. Sorry world. Free 30 packs anytime I wanted. That was pretty nice.
It's the PBR and lighter - well, cheaper - beers that do to me what r0xor said ^.
I have a wheat allergy as well so I always wake up feeling like I have a head and chest cold if I drink cheap and/or lighter beers. I do enjoy wine, I
used to be a buyer for a wine bar as well.
Spirits, not so much anymore. Vodkas ok, whiskey never again, the night can only end with yelling at my friends or with "whiskey you-know-what," and
either way is not how I ever want to end a night.
I have to admit - I'm really addicted to run & eggnog. Well, eggnog anyway. So most times I throw some rum in it. Getting to warm here for that now -
I also wanted to say, we do have monthly events here in Chicago that are all ages, drug-and-drink free. I know some of the teens are probably taking
something, but whatever, "John, they're only dancing."
But I work these events, so I'm there at 6, don't get home til 2, and it's work. When I get home I'm like damn I need a drink! It's exhausting.
But I love doing it because I think it's great, when me and my sister were little my mom took us to parties - not all but some - and it was cool, I
love the kids at them, and it's also great that people who maybe are in rehab or just trying to recover have a place to go on a Friday or Saturday
night that's not a bar.
Did any of you see that article floating around about "Empaths are More Prone to SAD"? I think there was a thread here even...well duh. If I'm
sensitive to people's energies, I don't want to be around a packed room of intoxicated people.
Anyhoo one of those events is tomorrow night, 1st one at a new location, so looking forward to that.
