Drinking Diversions

As the weeks drag on, people start looking for new and innovative ways to drink. Bar hops to a string of increasingly disreputable gin joints are a thing of the past. Chugging beer with a hand down their pants while watching sports ball is out, too. Tailgate? Pool parties? Strip clubs? Nope. Nope. Nope.

What’s a bored lush to do? Just turn to your friendly neighborhood internet. Now through the end of May, check out the live show, Quarantine Crawl, with me as your host. Each Saturday night at 9 pm EDT, I “bar hop” to a different venue in my 1kSQFT apartment, joined by four friends to drink and talk.

Since you need some drinking to fill up Friday, take a visit to Joe’s Bar. Joe likes to hang out with indie authors and artists, so there’s always someone interesting bending the elbow with him.

 When you’re not in the mood to go to a bar, but just want to lounge around while drinking, there are other shows to watch. All the fun of a chill hang out, and none of the awkwardness of someone opening a drawer they shouldn’t have. 

 

Spilling Ink https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCHLN1ZKiMbfmO2pVgV12YMw/featured

Go behind the book with authors and hosts Katie Salidas, David Jones, and Jason LaVelle as they give you an inside look at all aspects of the publishing industry. Meet the authors working their way to the top of the slush piles, and see what it takes to bring a story from idea to print.

From the esoteric to the bizarre, you never know which way the conversation will turn. Drinking games are not advised while viewing. Just let the laughter kill you instead.

If gaming is more your style, you can always drink along with Norgy and their “quality trash” streams. 

 

Madison Metricula Roberts https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCwvsjKzlnvJVPvv8jNs5HJQ

For game streams and music, drink along with Madison. You might even find a knitting lesson or two in there. 

 

Cruise around youtube, drink in hand, and let us know what shows you like to watch! 

 

(Please drink responsibly. Don’t fucking spill it.)
