Facebook Contest

We launched this site in early February as a little something fun to do while putting off productivity. Since then we have had over 5,750 pass through the doors in just over two months and the readership continues to grow. This is obviously beyond our wildest expectations for whatever this site could be and we thank everyone for your support. As a way to give back to our readers we are going to be giving away two tickets to the Wednesday May 13 game against the Florida Marlins. These won't be Terrace Reserved tickets, they will be actual good seats. The drawing will be completely random and is open to the first 250 people who become a fan of Miller Park Drunk on facebook. Depending on the turnout we may add a second prize after 250, but for now we'll leave it at this. There is no catch here, just us giving back to our readership. The drawing will take place on May 1 where we will announce the winner in enough time to mail your tickets. Maybe the winner will even get to have a drink with us at the game.

So, like, become a fan already.

(If this game is not good for you or you live outside of Wisconsin we can work something else out, but you have to win before we get to all that.)

UPDATE: Forgot to mention that we are now on Twitter. Do us a favor and promote this contest by tweeting "@MillerParkDrunk Just entered Miller Park Drunk's ticket giveaway http://tinyurl.com/dba27a for 2 free GOOD seats" and follow us.

To Bong or Not to Bong?: A guide to getting drunk

"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.
