    No, just a reaching attempt at humor on my part.

    Were you hoping for the strong arm stretch reach around? No, that isn't me, but I wish it were!

    I made it through the experience. It was a pretty damn good time. Live Irish folk music, drinks, friends, family.

    In total: 4 Jameson's 18's, about half a Smithwicks, and somehow got conned into an Amaretto Sour.

    Maybe I took it easy cause I didn't really get drunk....although I was feeling it to say the least.

    Just "feeling it" is the best intoxication. You avoid the idiotic decisions of drunkeness and the boring righteousness of sobriety. Well-played.

    Pick a drink and stick with it.

    Do this. Ordering something different everytime will make you appear an amateur and a cad.

    I for one enjoy a double Jack on the rocks as my preferred drink, every bar has it and its simple.

    Also, it can play havoc with your stomach.

    This is untrue, at least in my case. On most Friday, Saturdays, and Sundays (and sometimes 2-3 days during the week) I'll drink wine all day at work, grab a beer before I leave work, and then at the bar I usually have at least one of each of the following: A beer, a mixed drink (not necessarily a cocktail but a gin and tonic or something), a shot of tequila, and scotch.

    I have yet to have my stomach be fucked up from that.

    My head, most certainly.

    Bullcrap. I've never had issues with lots of different drinks. And I've been doing that with regularity. I have a friend who's been hanging out with me for the past few weekends who just turned 21 not long ago, so I've been taking it upon myself to introduce him to the cocktail world. I've made it a point to not repeat a single drink. Neither of us has ever had an issue. The only time I've had a stomach issue, it was due to quantity, not type. And if you think people are actually keeping track of what you drink each time and judging you based on it... Unless you're the guy who keeps ordering fruit daiquiris (or any other sweet shit that people would judge you for drinking as anything more than a one off), no one will care. Also, have you tried Evan Williams instead of the Jack? Aged longer, better flavor profile (IMO) and cheaper. And really, are you at a bar for simple? The entire point of such an establishment is that they stock loads of stuff and make all the random drinks so you don't have to. Bars are there so you can get your Harvey Wallbanger fix, because really, who wants to stock Galliano at home, or for trying scotches that you don't want to pay for without a taste, or for having those zombies that you just don't want to deal with making.
