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- Oktoberfest: It’s October. Which means beer festivals, pretzels, and beautiful Germans everywhere you look. (Ok… maybe not that last part, but we can dream). If you’re not drinking beer from a boot, you’re doing it wrong.

2- Adam Sandler: The Waterboy himself is teaming up with Netflix to produce and star in 4 original films that will begin airing in the year 2015. Looks like we wanna grow old with him, too.

3- Michael Phelps: He added another DUI to his record this week. Apparently you can drink heavily AND win an Olympic medal (or 8). So drink away this weekend as long as you have a DD.

4- Ello: The new online social platform is up and running and kind of throwing us off. We’re gonna stick to socializing at the bar for now.

5- The D: Tesla CEO, Elon Musk, released a teaser ad this week announcing a new model he referred to as “The D”. Buy us a drink first, Elon.
