It's a staple at wedding receptions, and sometimes the wedding itself; birthday/retirement/anniversary parties; even youth events. (Why else would it be called a "Bar Mitzvah"?) Alcohol is a powerful force, whether you feel it's used for good or evil.

What do you think the drinking age should be? Why? Twenty-one. I grew up in Montana, and they experimented with it being 18 there at one point. It didn't work, so they changed it back to 21.

What do you think has a bigger effect on sobriety: alcohol or marijuana? Alcohol, because it is more widely available; it's got a bigger effect because more people are drinking it.

Would you rather live with a barista or a bartender? I like coffee and I like beer ... bartender, what the heck.

What do you think the best name for a mixed drink is? Slow Comfortable Screw Up Against the Wall.

What do you think the drinking age should be? Why? Personally, I think if you are old enough to go and fight for your country, you should be able to drink.

Do you have a most-embarrassing thing you've done because of alcohol? I don't know if it would be embarrassing, but we used to run around naked in college.

What scene do you think of when you hear the phrase "happy hour"? People trying to get in as many drinks as possible before [happy hour] ends.

Would you rather live with a barista or a bartender? Definitely a bartender — female. I just love the beer.

What do you think the drinking age should be? Why? Oh boy, that's a tough question. Maybe 50, because some people are too irresponsible to handle it. I actually think the drinking age should be 18.

Do you have a most-embarrassing thing you've done because of alcohol? It goes like this: "Where are my pants and why does my head hurt?"

What scene do you think of when you hear the phrase "happy hour"? I think of people coming in, in business suits and ties, and sitting around and drinking a few rounds and maybe grabbing a burger.

What do you think the best name for a mixed drink is? I think the best name I've ever heard is a Knock Me Down and Fuck Me.
