While your beer-drinking habits should rightly take most of your focus, drinking is most often done as a community exercise. If you are not just drinking to “get drunk” (more on this aberration next week), here are some other activities you may want to try:
- Trivial Pursuit. Nothing beats trying to remember what the sam hell Cotton Mather did when the fog of three beers rolls over your eyes.
- Poker. Any variety. Success comes with inhibition and intellect. Don’t get too drunk, or you’ll go broke.
- Scrabble. Triple word score for awesome words? Try coming up with the word “and” after one too many.
Remember that beer is a community beverage designed to make friends. A game of Trivial Pursuit, Poker, or Scrabble may net you a friend for life. Of course, if that doesn’t happen, you still have the best drink in the world in front of you to talk to.
