OT - My Home Town Made the Big Time (hic)

Recommended Posts

My home town has finally made the big time. We came in 2nd in the list of cities with the highest percentage of drunks.

 

U.S. News & World Report says Palm Bay-Melbourne is the second-booziest metropolitan area in America.

 

The magazine's survey ranked communities on percentage of residents who drink heavily. The source of the statistics was not named, but three Florida metro areas made the list of "America's Top 10 Booziest Cities:"

 

 

1. Reno, Nev. 9.4%

2. Palm Bay-Melbourne 9.1%

3. Boulder, Colo. 9%

4. Austin, Texas 8.8%

5. Charleston, S.C. 8.7%

6. McAllen, Texas 8.6%

7. Naples-Marco Island 8.5%

8. Riverside, Calif. 8.4%

9. Cape Coral 8.1%

10. Barnstable Town, Mass. 8%

 

After reading that I really need a beer

Wowza Ronnie!

 

And just 3/10 of a point behind Reno! :laugh:

 

So I gotta ask - You play in the local pubs and have seen the folks they're talking about... Does this surprise you?

 

Not judging - just askin'. :cool:

 

Stay safe!

No, I'm not surprised at all. There can be a LOT of alcohol served during a standard night, and there are quite a few popular watering holes around.

 

Makes me glad that it takes some time to tear down at the end of the night. Gives the inebriates a chance to get off the road before I drive them.
