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. Elves Hit The Shelves – For all you parents, we hope your elves have made it everywhere from the mantle to the toilet (hopefully the kids remembered to flush.) And if you forgot, well, grab a beer and get on that tonight.

2. $0.55 Whoppers – This weekend the Whopper turns 55 so Burger King wants to give them to you for just fifty five cents a pop. Sounds like the perfect occasion for a burger cocktail hour.

3. The Nominees Are… – The 2013 Grammy nominees have been announced. L.L. Cool J and TayTay Swift even announcement the list themselves. Start planning your drink menu for the award show.

4. Bacon TV – A new TV show titled “The United States of Bacon” is set to premiere on December 30th. Coincidentally, we have a Bakon Vodka review coming in the next few weeks. Perfect timing right?

5. Drinking Games – Thanks to our reader @cdeluca15, we’ll be playing drinking games all weekend in order to prep for the holiday celebrations that are bound to get competitive. Practice makes perfect.
