    Lubbock!?!?!? That was a dry county up until a year ago.

    Wait. That totally explains it. Making up for lost time.

    Re: Drunkest Cities

    I would guess by the standards of this study, that IC was not considered a "City"

    Re: Drunkest Cities

    I am going to get drunk very soon to try and help out this ranking. Also everyone in the Irish City of Boston is drunk. How the hell did they make least drunk?


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    Re: Drunkest Cities

    They're probably doing per capita...I'm sure they have a minimum population too because 75% of the towns in the midwest would make the top 100 list if it were that broad.

    Because a lot more people live in the Boston area than the Fresno area?

    They aren't dry any more? Bastards... Go figure they wait until AFTER I visit their town to sell beer in it...


    That said I still remember this drunk guy that got hauled out of our section - he was so drunk that as the cops walked him by us my friend turns to me (we're lik 6 or 7 seats in to the row) and asks me if I snuck a flask of vodka in

    The smell of alcohol coming off this guy was so strong, it smelled like I had vodka with me


    So from that angle I might believe it.


    Oh we will fight, fight, fight for Iowa State,
    and may her colors ever fly!!!

    Boston, home of hundreds of thousands of Irish, is the least drunk?......
