1,000 Bars in 2006, You Say?

1,000 Bars in 2006Everyone should have a hero - someone who stands for everything they hold dear, exemplifies a life lived well...and drinks every freaking day. We believe we've found that man in Matt Chimento, a young man who has made it his mission to visit 1,000 in 2006. Let's repeat that for the hard of hearing - he's going to visit one thousand bars in 365 days. Some quick math says that's an average of nearly three different bars per day...now that's some gumption.

We first heard about Matt's quest a couple months ago when we stumbled across his MySpace page, but we were convinced that boredom, scheduling problems or liver failure would put an end to it soon enough. Shows what we know - as we reach the halfway point of 2006, Matt is celebrating his 500th bar in Manhattan this Saturday, June 24th. Sadly, we can't make it, but if anybody makes it down to the Mad River Grille we'd love to hear about just how much he punishes his liver at each appearance.

Two (possibly) interesting facts:

  • Apparently, Matt got his idea from another visionary on a similar journey - a mysterious figure known only as The Beer Man. With a name like that, we should teach him the Liquor Snob secret handshake.

  • Speaking of secret handshakes, if you want to get to know the crazy crackers here in the Liquor Snob offices, check out our MySpace page and add us as a friend. You'll find us to be stalwart allies and generous lovers...or whatever it is you need us to be.
