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. Nemo: He’s coming. If you live in New England, we advise you start drinking now and hope for the best. If not, raise a glass to your poor friends buried in two feet of snow.

2. Grammys: The music awards show happens this Sunday night. Our drinking game: take a sip every time you hear the names Kanye or Swift. You’ll be cut off in no time.

3. Mardi Gras: One of the biggest parties of the year happens this weekend in NOLA. So grab a drink, throw on some beads and celebrate.

4. Spring training: For all of you baseball fans, the trucks are finally arriving in Florida this weekend. Here’s to a season filled with beer, baseball and more beer.

5. Chinese New Year: Sake anyone? We’ll be having some in honor of the Chinese holiday this Sunday.
