DRANKSGIVING

CallToTheBar SM

As far as we’re concerned, America’s true Thanksgiving holiday is today.  On December Fifth, 1933, our forefathers repealed Prohibition, ending the War On Drinks.  So let us give thanks that we live in an age that does not prohibit us from cocktailing when the mood strikes.  And in an age like ours, when does it not?  Some thinking about drinking to mark the occasion:

George Jean Nathan:  “I drink to make other people more interesting.”

David Lee Roth:  “I had to give up jogging, because the ice cubes kept falling out of my glass.”

William Lindsay Gresham:  “The universal solvent of morbid anxiety — alcohol.”

Joe E. Lewis:  “I’m worried.  I just saw my doctor, and according to his analysis there’s every indication that a small percentage of blood is getting into my alcohol system!”
