A quick aside: I need a research assistant. Someone I can turn to (virtually or for real) and say, for instance, "How much did a shot of cheap whiskey cost in 1959?"
Because looking these things up for myself usually means I end up at sites like this: Modern Drunkard Magazine's World's Best Drinking Songs.
I was going to save that link for a later post, but I thought it was important to inform you of this weekend's National Drunkard Convention, running today through Sunday in Denver.
From the website:
What to Expect: The tribe uniting. The elite inebriates finding each other. The best and the booziest. Ever go to a bar and wish there were some real goddamn boozers on board?
So what's your favorite drinking song (mine is "Streams of Whiskey" by The Pogues)? And how do I avoid massive distraction when doing online research?
And what was the price of a shot of cheap whiskey in 1959? Help!
