Keep the people drunk and uninformed, eh?
2001-10-24 09:20:30 AM

Sales in my sports bar dropped slightly and have actually gone higher and stabilized. This is a good time for sports (Redskins - Cowboys game not withstanding) so there are too many variables to draw a good conclusion. We are also carrying various TV news feed on several sets.

My impression though, is that many were staying home glued to the TV and getting plowed.

I got so drunk the other night I dragged a dead deer into a McDonalds.

I would think that the Cowboys Redskins game would have been a reason to drink more than usual.

O jeezus, like people weren't swigging beer before all the shiat hit the fan. Did you take into consideration that it's football season too?

There's a big conference of beer producers in the most beautiful
town in the world: Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

At the end of the day, all of the presidents of all beer
companies decide to have a drink in a bar. The president of
'Budweiser' orders a Bud, the president of 'Miller' orders a
Miller Lite, Adolph Coors orders a Coors, and the list goes on.

Then the waitress asks Arthur Guinness what he wants to drink,
and much to everybody's amazement, Mr. Guinness orders a Coke!
"Why don't you order a Guinness?" his colleagues ask.

"Naah. If you guys won't drink beer, then neither will I."

Cool... Let us know when your beer consumption per capita matches Canada. Then there will be a front page story...

My ex girlfriend drank about ten of those one night. I stopped holding her hair back at about 3am and went to bed.

"The local beer consumer not only cheered on the pilots, but they drank a lot more Bud and Bud Light as the bombs fell on Afghanistan."

you can't pay for that kind of free advertising

"Beer sales have risen considerably since America went to war"

ok, that was me... didn't think anyone would notice...
2001-10-24 12:06:49 PM  
Fb , "drining?" Is that a contraction for drinking and driving?
2001-10-24 01:02:59 PM  
I would like to take the moment to thank all beer producers for my birth..... thank you. Without your help I wouldn't have been able to see this day.

Seems about right. The night of September 11th I went down to Queens and drank about 500 Bass Ales. Usually don't do that on a Tuesday night.
2001-10-24 01:19:04 PM  
I have been stealing more beer than usually. Does that figure into this?
2001-10-24 01:36:07 PM  
I am glad that someone picked up the slack. I have slowed way down.

MetaFark- I'll remember that post on my next visit to a pizza joint: "I'd like a large pizza, extra cheese, thick crust pizza..and hey, are you still putting cheese in the crust still?"

Heroin and pot sales have also been up, but those aren't as easy to track.
2001-10-24 08:29:24 PM  
I happened to be on vacation that Sept. week,and that gave me all the more reason to get hammered..speaking of pot sales,is it going to be a dry winter or what?..now back to the Fark keg party...
2001-10-24 09:23:16 PM  
I wonder how much money the CIA is making off coke sales.
2001-10-25 03:20:45 AM
