"Luther said I could learn some things from you. I already know how to drink" - The Sting
Of course you know how to drink. I wouldn't doubt it for a second. You've probably never had too much to drink and thrown up. Or said something you shouldn't have. Fell down, been thrown out of a bar, attempted a backflip or chewed your arm off to get away from a girl you woke up next to. You've probably never kissed a dude because you thought it would be funny or split your pants or threw up at a bar ON the bar. You know how to drink, you wouldn't do these things.
Here's the thing, I have. I've done all those things. I have done more stupid things while I was drunk then pretty much everyone you've ever met. I've ruined more relationships, spilled more tequilla on myself, sent more regrettable texts and had more heads shaken at me (oh, you) than my entire readership combined. Is this something I'm proud of? Of course not. I wish I could drink like a normal person and do normal things. I wish I had more than three readers. It's just that when I drink I am fairly certain that I can do a standing backflip and will later have to throw up. These things happen. So while you may think you know how to drink, I'm going to tell you how NOT to drink at Opening Day. It's my pleasure, really.
Today is the first full day of games and everyone is getting their first chance to root for their team... except us (and Giants fans). This sucks and it's kind of lame that the team has to play a game, fly from San Francisco to Milwaukee, then play a game the next day; but whatever. The Giants need their rest! They played an exhibition game yesterday! If you're feeling sad about it, know this: it could worse.
There have been some infractions at the Skydome at “past events as a result of these infractions, the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario announced Saturday that it is suspending the liquor license for Rogers Centre for three event dates in 2009.
The first suspension date is Tuesday, April 7, 2009 (Toronto Blue Jays vs. Detroit Tigers).
I like beer. A lot. This may surprise you, but it's true. I like to drink beer. This season at Miller Park there is going to be a new beer for us to try at Friday's Front Row. It's from the Buffalo Water Beer Company that is located on Water Street and it's called Bison Blonde. Is this news? Not really. I am sure the beers at Friday's Front Row change frequently and I don't bother drinking most of them. However, this one has caught my eye. I think that it was made specifically for me because while I do love beer what I really love is buffalo wings and this beer was created to drink while eating buffalo wings. SERIOUSLY!
Inspired by an intersection and our love of spicy foods, particularly Buffalo wings, America’s number one “finger food,” the Buffalo Water Beer Company was formed in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 2007. With a lack of beers on the market dedicated to complementing hot foods, a group of Brew City beer enthusiasts took on the challenge of producing a beer to fill the void.
After several months of beer taste-testing , the Buffalo Water Beer Company finally found the perfect formula for its flagship beer, Bison Blonde. With a moderate alcohol content of 4.4% ABV, Buffalo Water’s first ever beer is an ideal match for spicy foods. Whereas higher alcohol content beers generally cause bloating, especially while eating, Bison Blonde is a lighter, golden lager that you can just keep on drinking.
Seriously, I think I have been waiting my whole life for this beer. I hope they don't let me down, but if it really does go well with wings I may have found the answer to life, the universe and everything.
I am going to try this out and let you know how it goes. FINGERS CROSSED
