The fearsome news Voltron that is the Daily News Beastweek has compiled a list of the 40 Drunkest Cities in the US, using the average number of drinks consumed per person in a month. So how did your city fare?

Well, the results are somewhat surprising! Here are the top ten:

  • 1. Milwaukee, WI
  • 2. Fargo, ND
  • 3. San Francisco, CA
  • 4. Austin, TX
  • 5. Reno, NV
  • 6. Burlington, VT
  • 7. Omaha, NE
  • 8. Boston, MA
  • 9. Anchorage, AK
  • 10. San Diego, CA

So most of those make sense. Boston, obviously. The Midwest, clearly. But San Francisco? That seems odd. I guess you have to factor in all the fancy wine and fruity cocktails consumed at summer garden parties. (Everyone in San Francisco is gay, you see). Otherwise America’s gay lagoon doesn’t strike me as a very drinky-drinky city.

    @ed Yes but I don’t have to clean the toilet or call my lawyer to bail me out. 😉

    The hilarious thing is reading this while your buzzed and living near Omaha.
