Well, I wasn't at "the bar" per se unless you count the liquor cabinet at Chez NakedYoga "the bar." Anyway, got up early to do some bar review, in time to be able to take a 2-hour break and watch the Confederations Cup match between South Africa and Spain. Had 2 fresh gin & tonics (Tanqueray and Schweppes). Great middle of the day relaxation after intense studying and a heat index outside of ~105 F.

Wow. Pretty solid self-control there.

You're not missing anything with respect to Jagerbombs. I think sake bombs are overrated, and I definitely had a few too many Irish car bombs on my 21st birthday. Bombs have gotten a little passÃ© for me (including the ones in Iraq
). Vodka + Red Bull sucks... but I'll admit I drank a lot of sugar-free Red Bull during exam time in law school. Amstel and Yuengling are pretty good, but I have to seriously question any consumption of Miller, whether it's High Life, Lite, Ultra Lite, etc. Your regrets are well-taken... don't give in to the piss-beer!
