Rules for the Savvy Drinker

Savvy Drinker in Stupid HatAs an outsider you might think drinkers (or drinkists, as we like to call ourselves) follow no rules. After all, the typical drinker lives outside the rules, shunning the uptight rules laid down by the uptight few. There is an element of that, but there are some rules you have to follow if you want to exist in the subculture, both to ensure your safety and your ability to exist in a bar without being laughed out of it.

We've found a list of Rules of Drinking over at Esquire that we thought fit the bill pretty well. The ones that stood out for us included the following, but head on over to their site for a whole bunch more:

#1 - There is no such thing as a chocolate martini.

#22 - Jack Daniel's. Rocks.

#28 - No one but the bouncer cares how tough you are, and he already knows you're not that tough.

#53 - If you're the first in a group to arrive and you start a tab on your card, you deserve exactly what's coming to you.

#63 - Two singles are better than one double.
