Geez...  What the heck time was it before?  You poor deprived Northwesterners...  It's been 2am here in SoCal for as long as I've been able to hit the town.

Had a nice fat lunch on the company's dime after a meeting today.  Tossed back a couple of Sam Adams there.  Feeling much better now...  Ready to polish off the work day, I am!   8)

Yeah--I was gonna say.  Even here in Oklahoma (one of the most backwards states in the nation), the bars are open until two.

Heh, you're all deprived.  It's been 2 am for most for about 15 years here, 3 am for some bars.

Drinking age is 18 :P

In the suburbs, most of the time, last call is around 1:45 AM.  In the city, closing time is more like 4:00 AM.

Now now don't get to hard on us midwesterners, here in WI it has been 2AM boozing ever since I can remember. You want to see backwards drinking take a look down south to the dry counties and no booze sundays. What would a football game be without a little alcohol haze ;)   and for a disclaimer not all  southerners are not backwards just the booze policy.

Ah, you reminded me of what part of the dark ages we were in for the longest time.  Beer and liquor stores, as well as bars, were closed Sundays up until about two years ago.  Only place you could drink was in a restaurant or at a sporting event (football, baseball, hockey, horse racing).  Used to be pretty funny to see the lineups at 1:55 am at the beer stores on Saturday night.  Bunch a drunks making darn sure they had more for the next day.  :D

Ahh yes. Things I also forgot.  When I was out west. (Wyoming) I saw my first all in one booze center. I never knew that they had drive up liquor stores that also had a bar inside. I can see it now a Burger King spin off.
Booze King. Hello can I take your order.And can we super size that for you?
 They also hand out extra large bags incase its a coyote night ;D

I was talking to my cousin's husband, and he's from Alabama.  He went to Auburn, and was always a fan of Auburn football.  He told me that the tailgating for the Auburn-Alabama game starts on tuesday for a saturday game.  And he said they start REAL early!  The funny thing is, he said they all would try to sober up by sunday morning, so they could go to church!

MAn to be college age again. I think if I started on a tuesday for a saturday game nowadays it would kill me (or I would wish I was dead)

 I did catch an Alabama game when I was down south. It was a lot of fun. It was the only other college game I saw besides the Badgers up here.

used to be 1AM, in some ways we are really progressive in others really behind the times...it is so wacky.  Like I'll ever be able to see a last call again for a while though :-*

Heh, that was my first thought when you posted that detail Scott:  why does he care, he'll never be out that late?  Ah, the joys of parenthood.  Notably responsible parenthood.  Oh well, more fun being kicked in the crackers by a rampaging 3 year old when you're not hungover. ;)
