Eh, just a beer actually.

Let's say you're in an unfamiliar area and walk in to a bar you have never been in before. You appreciate a nice cocktail, but don't know anything about this bar's bona fides. What do you ask for? [more inside]

Brooklyn afternoon bar crawl – can it be done?

Planning an afternoon bar crawl around Park Slope / Cobble Hill / Carroll Gardens areas, but I'm having trouble coming up with bars that would be open on a Friday afternoon (after, say, 2p). Any recommendations? Closer together is great, outside patio/drinking a big plus! [more inside]

I CAN TAKE ANY ONE OF YOU MOTHERFUCKERS!!! No, wait, I'm just building a cup pyramid.

Australians of Metafilter, I want to hear from you! I've long heard that turning your glass upside down in a bar in Australia is the same as saying you think you could take anyone in the place. For some reason, this idea fascinates me. Is it true? Do people actually do this? What happens when they do? Where did it come from? [more inside]

How to drink in Oahu without meeting tourists

HawaiiFi: I'm going to Oahu for a week after just getting dumped by the local Hawaiian girl I was meant to go with. I wouldn't really go somewhere that touristy otherwise, and have no intention of surfing or going to hotel bars. What I would like, however, is an authentic local experience, in some seedy, out-of-the-way bar. Any suggestions? [more inside]

A round on the house

I was in a bar the other night and the bartender passed out a poker chip to everybody in the house, which was, I found out, how the bartender or bar owner buys a round for everybody. I never saw this before. How widespread is this tradition (a round on the house via passing out a token to everybody?)

Help me get drunk in style!

Inspired by this New Orleans drinking post, but not ready to commit to making my own, I must know: Where in the San Francisco Bay Area can I order a Sazerac? (If you can tell me of a bar that makes them in Oakland, I’ll buy you one.)
