Walk into most bars in any city in America and you’re likely to see a few staple items; beer taps, bar stools, various tables, and, of course, at least one television. All seem entirely appropriate for the atmosphere — except for the last one. What’s the deal with the plethora of televisions flooding our bars?
Some of you are no doubt runners, capable of overcoming man’s natural laziness and hauling your butts to the gym. Some of you may even have the strong legs and iron stomach necessary to partake in the traditional beer mile, that pinnacle of athleticism and speed drinking in which you race around a track and chug a 12-ounce […]
In an NBA that’s definitely divided into a world of haves — such as the Warriors and the Cavs — and have-nots, one thing that unites fans is griping about sky-high beer prices. Along with wins and losses, the cheapest priced beers at NBA arenas actually vary quite a bit. We examined last year’s beer prices around the […]
We’ve officially entered the transitional weeks between summer and fall that are really only important for one thing: the return of football season. Starting this week, giddy fans will spend most waking hours from here to January devoted to their favorite teams (both real and fantasy) and counting down the hours between weekly tailgates.

Infrastructural and political instabilities still plague the country. And then there was the sewage leak that led to drug-resistant super-bacteria being found in waters off some Olympic beaches. […]
Want to go to Dartmouth? Good for you. That’ll cost you just $69,474 a year. That price tag might seem insanely high and definitely includes a cost category vaguely labeled “miscellaneous,” but think of what you’re getting: it’s an Ivy League school, probably a great first step toward a super-corrupt political career, and—wait for it—the […]
Sports bars might not be your thing, especially if you don’t like sports, or don’t like them enough to endure a wall of flat- screen TVs and a lot of sports-themed profanity. But for many, sports bars have become a way to gather with like-minded fans (and sworn sports enemies) and catch a game. Plus […]
Some of us—let’s say those of us lesser versed in the poetry of the sport—need beer, maybe quite a few beers, to enjoy a baseball game.
