    Sadly I’ve got to drive home this afternoon. Otherwise I’d have a glass in hand.

    Pretty sure it is directly tied to how many relatives you are around.

    The first NFL kickoff signifies that it is okay to consume anything in sight IMO.

    On another note, when does everybody eat? I feel some people eat oddly early. We typically eat around 3-4

    To me, this is how I have always looked at it.

    If you wake up TO have a drink, it is too early.

    It you wake up AND have a drink, you are in the clear.

    A friend of mine always does a Thanksgiving Eve party with an open bar and oyster shucker. I am nearly too hungover to move, but I’m cooking. This is pretty much my flu game.

    IMHO it is never too early, as long as alcohol is not the main thing being consumed. You got a big, hearty breakfast looking at you? Coffee & Kahlua. Tequil-osas are a good twist on a mimosa if you don't care for champagne.

    Plus it's a holiday. Pace yourself but enjoy.

    Probably eat around noon this year. Usually do 3 or 4 but with kid waking us up at 5 we just decided to go ahead and get it going. Gives me time for a second wind for dinner.

    Love champagne taste wise, body absolutely revolts. I get the absolute worst heart burn, real bummer. We used to do champagne and peach schnapps every NYE. I can shake, or drink off, a hangover. But when it feels like you’re morphing into a dragon I’m out.

    I decided having a sazerac at 1130 with my in laws neighbor was a good idea. Of course this was after tearing through wine and then a Manhattan after dinner.

    Headache has subsided, pooping and showering before heading to the festivities. Bloody Mary is an hour away I think. Happy thanksgiving dickheads!

    Came to tmb for reassurance. Thankful for you guys being a bunch of degenerates and making me feel better about myself.

    Bout to pour up a little Four Roses small batch I got on special pre-black Friday sale from my favorite package store.

    I'd be starting right about now but I'm saving the booze for tomorrow when UNC plays because I'm old and drinking two days in a row just isn't even fun anymore, gonna pop a gummy soon though
