Kegs & Eggs for Breakfast
Want all the goodies of kegs & eggs without having to go out for it? Plan one at home. Invite your friends, each person can bring a breakfast item and pitch for a keg, and then everyone gets Sham-drunk at home. Never a bad move.
Host an Alcohol Olympics
My best friend did this on St. Party’s Day while we were in college, and I highly recommend. Get three or four people on a team, the team chooses a country to represent, then the games commence. We had an Opening Ceremony complete with dubbed-over Rick Sebak doc footage introducing each country, Quidditch Pong (Google it and thank me later), Tit Cup (men have tits too and they’re necessary for the game), Kario Mart and wrapped with a Tour de Franzia. While it’s more intricate to plan, it was the perfect alternative to dealing with the drunks and madness downtown – we created it ourselves in a house in Oakland.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced the nominees for the Golden Globes on Thursday morning. There were strong showings for FX, HBO and Amazon, and for films not even out yet.
Unlike the Oscars, the Globes divide films for most purposes into “drama” and “musical or comedy.” So rather than a single best picture category, you have a best drama category that includes Black Panther, BlacKkKlansman, Bohemian Rhapsody, If Beale Street Could Talk and A Star Is Born. The best musical or comedy category includes Crazy Rich Asians, The Favourite, Green Book, Mary Poppins Returns, and Vice. Some notable films not appearing on either list: First Reformed, starring Ethan Hawke; Damien Chazelle’s First Man, starring Ryan Gosling as Neil Armstrong; A Quiet Place, a critically acclaimed horror film nominated only for its score; and Widows, a heist film directed by 12 Years A Slave‘s Steve McQueen and starring Viola Davis.
