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. NHLFinally. After months of lockout depression, the NHL returns this weekend. Drinks are on Bettman.

2. Inauguration – Obama officially begins his second term this weekend. Democrat, Republican, who cares? Drink to America.

3. Fight the Flu – It’s almost impossible to avoid these days, so Qui is giving us an alternate to the flu shot—drink tequila. Doctor’s orders.

4. Sports Failures – After being lied to by Lance and Manti, we don’t know who to believe in anymore. We’ll need a few beers to cope.

5. Sundance – The annual movie festival kicked off this week. Grab a bottle of champagne and pretend you’re partying with the celebs all weekend.
