We've All Been There: "SELFIES!"

Your hair is done, your makeup is on and your outfit is perfect. All you have to do is pack that wristlet and you’re ready to head out with your friends. Money? Check. ID? Check. Camera? Check. Before you leave, you mix a few drinks and have a mini-dance party with the girls. Two rum and Diets and a few old school Britney songs later, it’s time to head out. But not without a “SELFIE!!”

The Weekly Ten: The Little Things I’m Thankful For

It's Thanksgiving week. You know what that means: more food than you’ll ever be able to eat, run ins with family members you'd really rather avoid and those awkward moments when everyone gathers together to say what they’re thankful for.

Halloween Drinks & Treats

Remember the fun days when your mom prepared disgusting looking food for your favorite friends? When you had to stick your hand into a box and feel something gross like slimy spaghetti? Just because you're in college doesn't mean the childish fun has to stop.

We’ve All Been There: Does He Like Me?!

You met him on the first day of class. He showed up late and took the seat next to you. As the professor droned on (and on) about the books you need, the upcoming group projects and the exam schedule, you two sat in the back of the lecture hall and whined about how awful the next 10 weeks were going to be.

Overheard: Things We Like to Do

(Girl, bringing a drink back to a table.) Guy: Whad'ya get? Girl: It's a gimlet. Guy: Oh. We usually freeze those. Or put them in the gravy.

One Month Challenge: Sober, Week 4

It's here. My final sober weekend. Even though this month has flown by and been not only easy, but totally productive, I am at the point where I am truly glad it's over. For the most part, going stone cold sober hasn't really been as challenging as I expected it to be. But that all changed on Wednesday. I don't know if it was the playlist was I listening to or the stress mounting, but I hit a wall and for the first time in 25 days, all I wanted was a giant cocktail.

Intro To Cooking: Autumn Drinks You’ll Fall For

My bartending style tends to run less towards the carefully measured, tried-and-true recipes and more towards the “What’s in my fridge right now?” trial-and-error method. I rarely use actual measures, because what is “good” depends on how many people are drinking, how liquored up they want to be, and how well they hold all that liquor.

Cosmo Says the Darndest Things: November Edition

My dearest Cosmo has always had a special affinity for body language analysis (I think they’ve done Speidi like 6 times). Now they’re taking it to the next level and making it all easy, convenient and user-friendly for you! Cosmo understands the trials and tribulations of dating, especially when we need to figure out the bizarre and complex behavior of the male species.

Halloween Spook-tails!

Halloween parties are freakin’ awesome. And it’s a known fact that us college kids will be running rampant all over the country come Halloween night. What other chance do we get to play beer pong as Kanye West and Taylor Swift (stopping the game mid-toss with a "Imma let you finish..." before snatching the pong ball from each other)?

It’s National Tequila Day. Let’s Drink!

Who doesn’t love having a few shots of tequila? This writer doesn't. I can usually manage with the lime and salt included, but still; there are tons of things I'd rather experience than the burn of tequila as it runs down my throat followed immediately by my stomach trying to send it back.

Cut Those Cocktail Calories in Half!

We all know that summer marks the beginning of an endless season of barbecues, outdoor cocktail parties, and weekend vacation getaways where the food is always in abundance and the drinks never stop flowing.
