There's a startling amount of OH in there...

Wow, Providence is more hung over than Boston? Yay, us!

It's funny that they disqualified every Wisconsin town except Milwaukee.

In other news, Jay Cutler is hanging out in San Antonio.

You can always go down to Tri-Pointe Coffee House and read scripture and sing church songs.
 
2013-01-05 09:18:41 AM  
My hometown too. Funny enough, I didn't start drinking until after I left.
 
2013-01-05 09:18:59 AM  
I'm surprised Philly is one the list.
Youn have to stop drinking to have a hangover, right?

I'm an Egyptian!: Wow, Providence is more hung over than Boston? Yay, us!


Ya, but the twin shiatholes of Worcester & Springfield beat Providence.  I blame the fact that no one sane or cool could ever find something to do in those places.

\why yes, I may be biased
\\even if in said 13th ranked city I couldn't find an open bar or packie near a fairly drunk school...in the middle of a blizzard....on my 21st birthday.

The title of the survey is actually misleading.  But hey, welcometofark.jpg and all....

For real! I'm contributing to the Toledo score this morning. Ouch.

To me it seemed the towns that mom and pop could open a bar did well on this list. A lot of places it costs a tremendous amount of money to open a bar. Buffalo is full of small bars and its great.
 
2013-01-05 09:30:00 AM  
Also from Omaha. Not surprised.
 
2013-01-05 09:30:15 AM  
What the hell, New York City? I can't do all the drinking for you.

Yes. I left in '87, and just driving across the border into the damn state makes me need a drink.

I think that chick at #9 wants to blow me.

Hold my beer, I'm making my move.

Yay Ohio!!! Representin' 10% of the list!!
 
2013-01-05 09:45:34 AM  
Must be a population cutoff. My hometown, Watertown, WI has a population of about 22,000 and has between 35 and 50 bars. (i am too lazy to do the proper research atm.)

That would equal between 1.6 to 2.3 bars per 1000 residents. If you go by households (approx 8,500) you have between 4.2 and 5.9 bars per 1000.
 
2013-01-05 09:45:42 AM  
Atlanta didn't make the list? This is an outrage! Link (pic too big for inline)

I've lead enough drunks on pub crawls on the train to increase the percentage by at least a point of two.

Chicago, New Orleans, Las Vegas, Honolulu and San Francisco are major travel destinations for tourism and conventions. They have plenty of bars per household because many visitors want to go there. Most folks I know from OH only want to leave.

Madison absent because of the professionalism.

We in Oshkosh laugh at you.

2013-01-05 09:59:35 AM  
Yes, but I was the most hungover.... Therefore Greenwood, IN deserves an honorable mention.
 
2013-01-05 10:02:20 AM  

Ohiofarker: Yay Ohio!!! Representin' 10% of the list!!


I think you may be hungover. 25 cities, 5 Ohio cities. That's 20%. Sweet.
 
2013-01-05 10:09:24 AM  
Congrats subby, you beat Wisconsin!
 
2013-01-05 10:11:22 AM  
I would have thought Vegas would have scored higher.

Interesting L.A. and Miami aren't there.

Pittsburgh has the best bars.

I guess I need to go to Omaha. I would have never imagined.

The List
Rank City State
1 Omaha NE
2 Milwaukee WI
3 New Orleans LA
4 Pittsburgh PA
5 Buffalo NY
6 Akron OH
7 Toledo OH
8 Worcester MA
9 Springfield MA
10 Las Vegas NV
11 Cleveland OH
12 Honolulu HI
13 Providence RI
14 St Louis MO
15 San Antonio TX
16 Cincinnati OH
17 Boston MA
18 Columbus OH
19 Austin TX
20 San Francisco CA
21 Chicago IL
22 Philadelphia PA
23 El Paso TX
24 Portland OR
25 Denver CO

With 5 in the top 25, Ohio represents 25% of the list (Wo0t!). Texas and Crapachusetts both have three, rounding things out at 12%. Pennsylvania (home of State Penn) gets an honorable mention with 8% of the list.

Startling? I'm quite perturbed that Cbus didn't make the top 5. Because, seriously, we belong there.

/doing my part to boost the score

What the hell is that guy drinking in the New Orleans photo?

/looks like someone drank it already, if you know what I mean
 
2013-01-05 10:22:14 AM  
I think Austin would be higher on the list if they included more data points to determine a result. Downtown Austin every day of the week, most of the coffee shops and restaurants are open at 6 or 7 AM, even on Saturdays when the office workers are home.

Sundays? NOTHING is open until at least 10AM if not noon.
 
2013-01-05 10:24:15 AM  
Does anyone else wonder why there are no Florida cities in the list?
 
2013-01-05 10:27:51 AM  
I think Columbus had a lower score because helmets make us slightly safer.

Also, 5/25 = .2 = 20%. Is the wrong percentage thing a new meme, or are you guys idiots? "Both" is an acceptable answer
 
2013-01-05 10:43:39 AM  
From Omaha, kinda knew it would be us.

We have 4 bars for 2000 people and 5 drinks is a quick stop at the bar. Wonder what our 'index' would be.

johnryan51: Buffalo is full of small bars and its great.


These two words never ever go in a sentence together.
 
2013-01-05 10:47:29 AM  
Oddly different from the list of the 25 drunkest cities recently compiled using similar data. (deslidified for your pleasure)

burpchuck: Does anyone else wonder why there are no Florida cities in the list?


No. Floridians don't stop drinking long enough to GET hangovers.
 
2013-01-05 11:15:48 AM  
The CDC defines binge drinking as having five or more drinks in one sitting for men, and four or more drinks in one sitting for women. The most recent data available was from 2010.
 
2013-01-05 11:18:15 AM  
If that had been a slide show that would have been the bonus
 
2013-01-05 11:23:30 AM  
I'm surprised Texas only had 3 cities listed.  And Austin ranked way lower than I expected.
 
2013-01-05 11:26:01 AM  
New Orleans wasn't #1? This list fails. You can get a daiquiri in a drive thru in The Big Easy.
 
2013-01-05 11:27:36 AM  
A bit late for the holidays, but since we *are* on the subject of Omaha...

We three clods from Omaha are
Spending Christmas Eve in a car
Drinking, drinking, glasses clinking
Who needs a lousy bar?

Ohh...

Drink to Charlie Drink to Paul
Drink to friends we can't recall
Swerving speeding, signs unheeding
Drink to anything at all

We three clods are feeling no pain
Drunk as skunks with booze on the brain
Senses losing, 'Til we're cruising
Into a wrong way lane

Ohh...

Drink to Melvin. Drink to Fred
Drink to those two trucks ahead
Headlights flashing
Screeching, crashing
Drink till they pronounce us dead


/mad magazine parody

NO is a smelly piece of shiat. No one likes it.

sgnilward: It's funny that they disqualified every Wisconsin town except Milwaukee.


Right? 8 bars per 10,000 people? shiat, there's that many bars per block in some of these little towns.
 
2013-01-05 11:44:25 AM  
Is this a reasonable process? Hangover score = 2(number of bars per 10,000 people) + % of people who admit to binge drinking?
