We're #6! We're #6!

Sun Times article:
  • The Web site for Forbes magazine ranked Milwaukee as "America's drunkest city" and placed Chicago at No. 6.
  • Milwaukee was followed by Minneapolis-St. Paul; Columbus, Ohio; Boston and Austin, Texas.
  • And surprisingly, party towns Las Vegas and New York City ranked No. 14 and No. 32 respectively.
Well, of course Milwaukee was number one. IT'S MILWAUKEE! But we're surprised more college towns didn't end up at the top of the list. Any volunteers to help boost Chicago's ranking this weekend? We'll be trolling on Rush Street this weekend.

As a graduate of Milwaukee's Marquette University, we welcome the results of this survey with great pride. Between the University of Wisconsin (Madison) and Marquette, we know of no other colleges that routinely held kegger parties on weekdays.

As we used to sing, "Notre Dame can have their Golden Dome. Just give us our Milwaukee foam."

Well, I can understand that. There are really only two things to do in most of those towns, drink and fornicate. If you saw some of the inbred people there, you only have one choice, drink.

More seriously, those towns are tavern friendly. Chicago and its aldercreatures hate taverns and would like to reintroduce prohibition. If I am not mistaken, since King Richard has taken over, over one half of the taverns- not the joints that serve food to get a license, but real bars, neighbor hood bars, corner taverns. All gone.

If we want to be number one we have to open up the license process and let more taverns flourish.

Let the booze run through the streets!

King Richard is at war with all neighborhood taverns, bars and "social clubs". They don't kick into the coffers of the king so off with their heads!!

A big time casino means lots of campaign contributions. Where as neighborhood joints may be places where people might launch campaigns for alderman or committeeman. He and his property developer friends are trying to turn Chicago into a bedroom community. How did some of them get huge tracts of C.T.A. land on Clark St. and at North Avenue and Cicero, for nothing? Did you ever notice on the expressways at morning rush hour as much or more traffic is headed to jobs outside the city as into the city.

Pardon me as I open another Schlitz, at home, and try to keep up the image of Chicago.

There's one guy over there they call "Doc Holliday". He's a fucking pro saucer.

On my last police shooting, he told me to talk to the Deputy. When I asked which one, he said...

"The one in the middle, kid."

I heard that Area 1 has a retired hairdresser over there. Rumor has it he's a HUGE boozehound. The guy also is some kind of wing-chung, hong kong phooey nutjob. A badass metrosexual -- what an oxymoron. I guess that explains his multiple personalities. Looks like each one of his personas has a drinking problem.

Anyway -- The Jagerbomb recipe was allegedly invented the last time he got shot. His bleeding arm was dripping into an open vat of Redbull, and the crazy fucker downed it. Viola! Jagerbomb!
