Admiration for Conspicuous Drunks
« on: May 13, 2010, 11:41:18 PM »
Had the pleasure of hanging with flyingbison and emerge tonight.  It was fun to have beer and friendly conversation as well as showing Steve some of the new places in Chicago that just opened up.  I wish it was more than a few days, bro.  If you are reading this and can go to the Bad Apple you must try the hangover burger that comes with two kinds of pork and a fried egg. 

After going to Half Acre we were awarded with free cans of Gossamer.  Not bad and the weekend starts tomorrow.

When our evening ended we parted ways and I got on my bus to go home.  I have always been envious of the lushes who would drink on the bus without worry bit I could never summon up the courage to do the same.  Tonight, however, I was armed with craft beer in a can and six beers in the belly.  I popped open my beer and brought out my book and went to town.  I convinced myself, rather easily, that what I was drinking would be mistaken for an energy drink.  It's bright yellow after all.  No need for brown paper.  A shame I just discovered this.

Where do you drink that's not socially acceptable?  Besides work.

I'll pour a beer into a big ass insulated coffee mug and walk around a couple small towns when I am taking a little mini-vacation. :shrug:

We do car bar when we want to save money. Usually involves parking on the street and downing a couple of brews (always out of a glass, never the bottle) before going someplace. Usually we bring along peanut butter and jelly sandwiches so we don't have to buy food out, or we'll split an entree or something instead of buying two.

I have a couple car bar experiences that were lots of fun. We were doing a trip I think it was 2008 when the Badgers had clinched a share of the basketball Big Ten title and had one final game at Northwestern to win the title outright on my birthday, no less. My buddy kept wondering and worrying about where we were going to drink before the game because he was having a hard time finding a bar within walking distance, and I would ease his fears by reassuring him that in case of need, there was a bar in my car. We wandered around for a while and tried to find some place to get a drink, said fuck it and chilled out of the car for an hour drinking while parked on the street. I think there were four of us that day. The Badgers won.

Another great one was enjoying some Central Waters Mud Puppy Porter while parked in front of the Old Faithful Inn at Yellowstone, trying to get a round in me before visiting the bar at the Inn. We were camping for two weeks (one night in a hotel in the middle to break up the trip, but otherwise sleeping outside every night) and so every comfort such as visiting the bar was very much appreciated, even more so when you already got a beer in ya.

I ended up drinking 9 times my body weight in beer, broke three glasses over my head, 7 over others, ordered up 17 hookers for a little afterparty, held a cabbie hostage while running his cab through the Madison capitol doors, and I grabbed gator's ass.

Never done that.  I have poured beer into an inflatable sheep's ass though.

Surprisingly, he wasn't present.

Well, discretion and politeness goes along way with public drinking scenarios....no one cares if you're drinking on the bus if you're doing it quietly with your headphones on or something

So what about when you drink on the bus?

I probably couldn't do this sober but it made David Sedaris funnier.  My laughter was the only nuisance caused indirectly by drinking.

I miss good stories like this, from BL and Dr. Nick. You still drinking on the bus, GB?

How did you find this thread?  It is ten years old!

No, that was probably the only time.  I feel the stares too much.

feels like now is prime time to be drinking in public spaces. things are more lax. on Friday or Saturday evenings i'll walk the dog while drinking a beer (or two). have even walked past, waved at and chatted with cops in the parking lot while my dog runs off leash and i sip a beer.  they don't care :shrug:

I searched "Yellowstone", and Nick's post popped up. Fun to revisit.

Can't say i've imbibed publically much beyond my porch and bar patios. I remember drinking a Hacker-Pschorr in a paper bag like 20 years ago.

Indianapolis has no open container laws, as long as you're not in a car.  Public intox can still kick in.  They even publicized this fact when the Super Bowl was here.  I've seen people walking down the street drinking out of half growlers.

How did I never see this thread before?  I don't recall where we went that specific trip, but I do recall getting some free short-fill cans at Half Acre.

Was this the time we met up at Fountainhead?  10 years is a long time.

Good point.  Although, my memory was a lot better 10 years ago.  I think.
