How to Act the First Time You Go to a Bar

Everyone remembers their first time at a bar. Whether they were 17 with a fake ID, or they actually waited until they turned 21, it's relatively exciting experience. It's like when you don't have to sit at the children's table for holiday dinners anymore -- you finally get to play with the big kids.

Friday Faves: Being Drunk Makes Everything OK

The truth is, alcohol lowers our inhibitions…and standards…for everything. We do things when we’re drinking that we’d never, ever, in a million years consider when we’re sober (like mixing ranch dressing and brownies).

Blackout Mistakes: Should They be Forgiven?

"What happened last night?" Ahh, the blackout. These words have become oh-so-familiar over the past two years I've spent at this fine university. Sunday mornings - Gatorade and a McDonald's breakfast sandwich in hand - I sit in my living room with my roommates, attempting to piece together the events from the night before.

The Morning After: The Oriental Rug Incident

It was a couple days after Christmas and my sister and I were at my parents’ cherished retirement pad in Florida.

We decided mimosas were in order... until I had a sip, remembered single handedly slamming a bottle of bubbly the night before and replaced the champagne with vodka.

College Myths Debunked: Liquor Before Beer…Doesn’t Make That Much of a Difference

There it is, the golden rule. Liquor before beer and you’re in the clear! The thing is, I know this isn’t true, I knew on my 16th birthday that this “rule” was BS. The amount of alcohol you drink—not the type and not the order in which you drink it—determines how drunk you get.

Weekly Ten: Sober and Loving it

For the past four weeks I have stopped drinking. Like, completely. I know - scary. Especially for a girl like me who loves to pair a drink with every time of the day. 9:30 AM? Bloody Mary. 11:45 AM? Margarita. 12:00 PM? Vodka Cran. 1:30 PM? Harpoon Summer Ale. 6:00 PM? Dirty Martini. Make that porn star dirty. You get the picture. I am definitely no lightweight.

Being Drunk Makes Everything OK

It's no secret that alcohol changes people. After a night of drinking, we're often surprised by what we may or may not have done during a night of debauchery. Oftentimes we end up with great stories, but there are also those nights that leave us wondering how the hell we ended up on a stranger's couch with only one shoe, a purse full of ping pong balls, and 17 new phone numbers in our phone...

An Open Letter To “That” Girl

Dear Drunk Girl, Hi sweetie. Long time no see. I take that back. I saw you last Friday. Same place, same hazy look in your eyes, different black dress that falls down to expose your bra. This one doesn’t have vomit on it… yet! Congratulations.
