We’re not the type of people who need a reason to drink. If we’re breathing that’s reason enough. But for those who need more, here you go:

1. National Coffee Ice Cream Day – Just when we thought it couldn’t get any better, it did. In honor of this dairy delicious day, mix up a White Russian for yourself, ice cream and all.

2. Nude Pics – This is old news by now, but take it as a lesson. If things get a little out of hand this weekend, it might be smart to shy away from the cameras.

3. Joan Rivers – The woman who could insult your outfit, but still make you love her has sadly passed. Toast this comedy legend with your most elegant drink this weekend.

4. US Open – Things will sure be heating up this weekend on the tennis court. The champs of the US Open will be determined this weekend, so try your best to pretend you’re into tennis.

5. New York Fashion Week – As the most high-end designers strut their stuff on the runway, don’t be scared to indulge in a drink and face the reality that no, you will never look as good as those models.
