Drinking and thinking

The title of this post is a salute to an old bar trivia team I was on from 2018-2020. We started playing every Tuesday with 4 players, and the group grew to 18; by then we had split up into 3 groups of 6. The bar started a tournament in the fall of 2019 that lasted about 8 weeks ( I didnt come every week but was fairly regular) and we had 3 teams in it; the primary team was called Drinking and Thinking, and if memory serves they finished in the top 3, which earned them a gift certificate for appetizers. We had used several monikers before settling on that one for the tournament, and continued to use it afterward. We stopped playing when the pandemic closed the bars in March 2020, and I now play in Indiana with a smaller group but similar format during the winter months.

Mountain Dew vs hard seltzer– hmmm. I’d rather drink piss than MD, so the winner is the liquor, for me anyway. In fact after I have to drink MD, I would need the stiffest drink on earth to wash it down. Yuck.

I guess Jesus wasnt around to make more seltzer like he made more wine at the wedding back in biblical times, huh? They didnt have enough to go around just like back then. Hey there’s even a Youtube video of the event! Check it out! (Those of you not Catholic may find it helpful; the rest of us find it amusing)

P3 we have a confrontation- I cant believe the blond girl was so naive she didnt know what was going on. Drinking? At OUR party?? Stop the presses! No, start the presses! Heather Burns has herself a story!


  1. Mountain Dew is indeed awful. There was not much drinking going on with the handful of seltzer’s. 3 , I guess you could call pop culture references , come to mind.
    “See if you can find the key to your mom’s liquor cabinet.” Thirsty and Miserable by Black Flag. The whole let’s get liquor plot in Superbad. And I’ve mentioned Freaks and Geeks in the past but there’s a great episode where the geeks get a keg of fake beer for Lynsey’s party. Did you see it? Good stuff.

  2. Well, the star of the first story, Pranit the Greek, is pretty fuckin stupid and naive, so it makes sense that the star of the other story, Hollis the cadet, is just as stupid and naive too. Drinking? At a party full of unsupervised high school kids? Even Helen Keller wouldn’t miss that

  3. I’m still wondering where the teacher is during all this. Several kids are talking about underage drinking in the middle of a lab? Maybe the teacher has been hitting their “water bottle” all morning and is passed out on their desk.

  4. The weirdest part of this SHOCKING drinking is that 6 kids were hiding in the garage during the party in order to partake in their shameful behavior.

  5. I have always heard that Jesus is on the Main Line but since He was born in Bethlehem and raised in Nazareth it’s all beginning to make sense. Wonder if He likes his cheesesteaks wit or witout?

    Today’s post coming directly.

  6. Yeah Mop…. Six kids sharing 2 cans of some shit like White Claw? Good grief… those kids really know how to get after it. No wonder Hollis is concerned
