St. Louis: Sixth Drunkest City
|Books have been written about our love affair with booze, and all we get is a lousy No. 6 ranking?|
As of right now, the magazine's website has yet to publish the findings, but USA Today has the scoop.
Frankly, Daily RFT is a little disappointed with the results. St. Louis comes in a measly No. 6.
Have the authors of this study ever been to a Blues game, next weekend's Mardi Gras Parade or any one of our smoky dens of sin?
The answer? Not likely.
The poll based its results on the following purported harbingers of drunkenness, all of which can tracked down from the comfort of one's desk:
- death rates from alcoholic liver disease
- auto accidents involving alcohol
- frequency of binge-drinking in the past month
- number of DUI arrests
- severity of DUI penalties
Here's the top ten drunkest cities per Men's Health:
- Fresno, Calif.
- Reno, Nev.
- Billings, Mont.
- Riverside, Calif.
- St. Louis
- San Antonio
- Lubbock, Texas
- Bakersfield, Calif.
