AP_AIKEN_DEBATE_141007_DG_16x9_992-1We’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. Clay Aiken for Congress: The former American Idol star is running for congress in the second congressional district of North Carolina. We want to raise a glass to this “Measure of a Man”—hopefully the entrepreneurial entertainer can make it through the heated race.
  1. Lauren Conrad gets a haircut: The queen of The Hills chopped off her beautiful long locks that we’ve all looked at in envy. We might need to mull over her new hair-do with a cocktail or two.
  1. Pasta Please: Count down to World Pasta Day this Saturday for a carb-loading celebration—as if we needed another reason to drink wine.
  1. MLS says “see ya”: The regular season for Major League Soccer comes to an end this Sunday. If you’re planning to watch, we suggest sitting on your couch, relaxing, and (most definitely) drinking.
  1. Nor’easter is over: After being bombarded with terrible weather this past week, many parts of the country are finally seeing the light. Celebrate by cracking open a few brews and soaking in some newfound sunlight.
