Online gambling is usually a solitary activity – you might be interacting with others via the site, but you are sitting on your own. Alcohol lowers inhibitions, as we all well know, and makes anything seem like a good idea. Therefore it can interrupt your ability to make a sensible bet, and a bad bet might end up seeming like a very good idea indeed.

Both alcohol and any online activity can act as time warps – ever been in a club for what feels like twenty minutes, online to find out that it’s actually two a.m. and the bouncer is not your friend? Or had a ‘quick look online’ for Christmas presents and managed to spend an entire evening on Amazon? So combining the two together can be deadly for those who have time and budget limits for their online gambling.

Alcohol and gaming both cost money. For those who have gambling budgets this isn’t such a problem, although a glass of wine or four might make gamblers inclined to over step their budget. Drink can also make you a bit morose, which can lead to reckless or ill-considered behavior (like putting your life savings on red, because *hic* issallajoke, righ’? *hic*) that can damage your finances.

Online gambling and alcohol mix less well than live gambling because there isn’t the same ‘party’ atmosphere. Online casinos don’t have tall, good-looking women walking around handing out drinks – there are no distractions. If you want to try this for yourself the you could play the best Canadian online slots games at LuckyNuggetCasino.com/online-slots. Behavioral scientists have made links between alcohol and gambling addiction in the past – both are repetitive, both are habit forming, and both should be handled with care. Unlike in a ‘bricks and mortar’ casino, online casinos can’t tell if you’ve had enough – so it’s up to you to monitor your behavior.

Everything in moderation can lead to a very good time indeed. Both gambling and drinking have to be approached with a healthy mind set, which means doing neither too much or for too long. Online gambling is a fantastic hobby when well-managed, so why ruin it with drink? The Australian Government has this very interesting page about alcohol and gambling, when they mix well and when they don’t. Give it a read – The Right Mix.

The A-List of Celebrity Cocktails – Top 10 Celebrity Cocktails http://www.sofakingdrunk.com/2013/05/02/the-a-list-of-celebrity-cocktails-top-10-celebrity-cocktails/ http://www.sofakingdrunk.com/2013/05/02/the-a-list-of-celebrity-cocktails-top-10-celebrity-cocktails/#comments Thu, 02 May 2013 20:31:56 +0000 http://www.sofakingdrunk.com/?p=2576 To those in the know, the moment when a person becomes a bona fide celebrity is not when they first grace the pages of a trashy magazine, nor when they first get recognised in the street. It’s only at the point when a person has a cocktail named after them, that they truly pass beyond the frontiers of our normal public realm and into the absurd and adored world of real fame. So who’s made it onto the celebrity cocktail A-list? Without further ado, here are our top 10 celebs available in liquid form at a haunt near you:

  1. Barack Obama – The big dawg. In global terms, they don’t come more famous than the President of the United States of America, Barack Obama. Alongside a Nobel Peace Prize, Barack also has a number of drinks named after him to his credit, often involving a tropical juice-based nod to his Hawaiian heritage.
  2. Britney Spears – Something sweet and tacky with this lady’s name attached to it is never more than a few bars away in most cities.
  3. Graham Norton – In a Graham Norton cocktail, fruity flavours and a generous amount of brown sugar around the rim are both a must. The last bit is pretty gross when you think about it.
  4. Margaret Thatcher – A number of bars in the UK have taken to serving Bloody Marys as Maggie Thatchers in the wake of the iron lady’s demise. There’s no doubt that these concoctions are suitably divisive, with ingredients including tomato juice, celery and Tabasco.
  5. Jack Bauer – Drinkers around the globe celebrate the 24 star with this jager-based concoction that’s guaranteed to keep you going around the clock!
  6. Nathan Fillion – A Canadian favourite. Smooth but with a fruity bite. Get some dark rum in there, after all, he was captain of a space pirate ship! Knock one back whilst playing on Intertops Casino in homage.
  7. Jimi Hendrix – This purple vodka and syrup-based cocktail will have things looking a little hazy in no time at all!
  8. Satan – Whether or not you actually think he’s real, the Devil still looms large in our public consciousness, which is probably why there are several drinks named after the sod. They say he’s got all the best songs, so why not the best cocktails too?
  9. Paul Gascoigne – If you’re after proof that bar staff are quite cruel people, look no further than the ‘Gazza’, a drink featuring a stomach-turning combination of numerous spirits – both wicked in its humour and grim for the customer!
  10. Vladimir Putin – This vodka-heavy cocktail will have you riding a horse topless through the woods and play-wrestling with huge dogs in next to no time at all. Or that’s what you’ll think you’re doing at least.

Convenient Beer Bottle Bongs http://www.sofakingdrunk.com/2012/10/30/convenient-beer-bottle-bongs/ http://www.sofakingdrunk.com/2012/10/30/convenient-beer-bottle-bongs/#comments Tue, 30 Oct 2012 21:31:49 +0000 http://www.sofakingdrunk.com/?p=2568 If you have ever been to a party (stupid question) then you will probably be aware of funnel bongs. Dome shaped with a foot of tubing that allows you to quickly down a beer…or two. They are usually great party starters! The only problem with them however is their size. Yeah, they aren’t as big as a fridge and we aint complaining that our lives end when we have to carry them, but in today’s world, smaller equals better (Yeah, that’s right, Steve). For that reason, a beer bottle bong is perfect!

Beer bongs, although compact, still allow you to down your beer in one go; in fact, due to small straw-like tubing that allows air to replace your beer that you drink, you should theoretically be able to down your beer even quicker than a standard beer bong would allow you. They also give a whole new meaning to the phrase pocket rocket.

Beer bongs are not only a great hit amongst college students, party partygoers and frat-parties, but the fun of competing with others to down a beer will even get your Granny to use one:

If all else fails, they are extremely cheap and make great Birthday and Christmas presents! Especially when you are strapped for cash and you don’t want to be that friend who is shit at buying gifts.

Please comment below if you have had a chance to use a bottle beer bong before and what your thoughts are compared to a standard funnel beer bong.

If you have never home brewed beer before, it is a great hobby that will become a passion of yours once you see and taste the great quality beers that you are able to make right in your own back yard!  Whether you like Pale Ales, IPA’s, Brown Ales, Blonde Ales, Stouts, Porters, etc., you name it, you can brew it!

You and your friends and family will have a blast brewing because you get to appreciate all the fresh ingredients that go into making beer!  There is nothing like smelling the the fresh hops before they get tossed into the kettle, or the roasted smell of the barley as it steeps.  Home brewing will give a much greater appreciation for beer and help you to expand your tastes for different styles of beer.

This 4th of July we will be brewing an All-American Pale Ale.  What better way to celebrate this holiday than brewing an American Ale!

Find Cheap Beer Near You – Save on Brew http://www.sofakingdrunk.com/2011/09/29/find-cheap-beer-near-you-save-on-brew/ http://www.sofakingdrunk.com/2011/09/29/find-cheap-beer-near-you-save-on-brew/#comments Thu, 29 Sep 2011 19:29:41 +0000 http://www.sofakingdrunk.com/?p=2490 The internet is full of — let’s face it — useless shit. Remember Subservient chicken? Yep, that was time well spent.

BUT WAIT!

Every once in a while, the internet makes us go: Hrmmm. These guys are onto something.

SaveOnBrew

The idea is — put in your zip code (or better, your full address) and some sort of magical internet gnomes find all the lowest advertised beer within X miles of your location (there’s a radius filter — 5 miles, 10 miles, etc.) Sort of like Google for beer.

You can sort the results, and then click on the beer to get all sorts of useful details, including a handy dandy Google map that shows you where you can go to get the suds. If we’d had this back in college, we could have saved our folks a ton-o-cash!

The results show domestics, imports, crafts and ‘adult flavored beverages.’ I put in my zip code and found more than 60 deals within 5 miles of my zip. Pretty cool! Due to the nature of how craft beers advertise, there are fewer there than we’d like to see. But as those craft beers grow up, so will their advertising budgets and then they can get in and mix it up a little better with the big boys.

As of this writing, they say they’re just “a couple weeks away” from their mobile app, which will make this thing about ten thousand times more awesome.

Try it out and tell your friends. That’s what beer buddies are all about.

BEARPONG Review, Bear Pong Drinking Game http://www.sofakingdrunk.com/2010/11/03/bearpong-review-bear-pong-drinking-game/ http://www.sofakingdrunk.com/2010/11/03/bearpong-review-bear-pong-drinking-game/#comments Wed, 03 Nov 2010 23:17:28 +0000 http://www.sofakingdrunk.com/?p=2383 Bear Pong Review Drinking GameI know you are all familiar with Beer Pong, but have you ever heard of Bear Pong?!

This is a fun new take on the classic Beer Pong Drinking game that we all know and love to a whole new scale!  BEARPONG is oversized portable Beer Pong that can be played anywhere!! It does not require unnecessary tables and is extremely portable. Bear pong can be played pretty much anywhere that you have some open space; your backyard, the beach, a park, tailgates etc.  And the whole game comes in a handy carrying case that makes it easy to take with you.

This is a well made game with quality materials.  The buckets and carrying case are high quality and are sure to last a long time.  The game itself is not a drinking game… but it can definitely be adapted to fit your needs!  Just like beer pong, everywhere you play there seems to be slight variations on the rules and when to drink.  BEARPONG can be adapted in the same way.  Here you can find the classic rules, straight from the BEARPONG.com.

Bear Pong is a ton of fun to play with your friends and family and a well needed twist on the game of beer pong!  Beer Pong was getting a bit old and needed a change.  And for all you college students, this game will motivate you to get you out of your dingy dorm room or frat-house and enjoy some fresh air for a change!  We highly recommend ordering yourself a BEARPONG kit.

CLICK HERE TO ORDER BEARPONG!!!

Feel free to post comments below if you have had a chance to play Bear Pong and what rules you like to play by… especially if you have made this game into your own drinking game!

Disposable E-Cigarettes Review, Bar and Restaurant Electronic Cigarettes http://www.sofakingdrunk.com/2010/10/28/disposable-e-cigarettes-review-bar-and-restaurant-electronic-cigarettes/ http://www.sofakingdrunk.com/2010/10/28/disposable-e-cigarettes-review-bar-and-restaurant-electronic-cigarettes/#comments Thu, 28 Oct 2010 17:54:48 +0000 http://www.sofakingdrunk.com/?p=2373 Disposable E-Cigarettes Review

Disposable E-Cigarettes Review

Electronic cigarettes (aka e-Cigs) are a new thing to have in bars and restaurants. These cigarettes  give off nothing but water vapor, making them legal to smoke anywhere, anytime!  Disposable e-Cigs have no tobacco in them making them virtually harmless, but thy do have a dose of nicotine in them to give you your true cigarette fix without having to step outside to smoke.  These disposable e-Cigarettes by Blue Cigs come in a variety of flavors like Original Tobacco, or Menthol.

Currently you cannot buy these disposable e-Cigs online, you have to be at a bar or restaurant that carries them.  A single disposable e-cigarette will cost you around $12.  I know what you are thinking… “$12 for one cigarette?!  That’s ridiculous!”  The Blue Cigs Disposable e-cigarettes are more than just a single cigarette.  A single disposable e-Cig will last you about as long as a pack and a half of real cigarettes. Another bonus for these disposable cigarettes is that they give you a lot more vapor than the standard e-Cigs that are out there.  But this comes with a small price, the disposable e-Cigs are slightly larger than your typical cigarette or e-Cig.  The size however, is not anything overwhelming by any means.  In our opinion it is a good trade off because you get a huge cloud of vapor from the disposable e-Cics compared to the standard e-Cigs that are on the market right now.

The disposable e-Cigs have a pretty good flavor and although different than smoking a real cigarette, they are very similar in a lot of ways:  The smoke/vapor from an e-Cig seems a bit lighter than a real cigarette, but on the positive side the smoke doesn’t stick to you at all and leave you reeking of cigarettes all night.  The vapor is heavy and thick enough to blow smoke rings and hangs in the air longer than expected.  You don’t need a lighter to use the e-cigs, and there is no limit to how much you have to smoke at one time.  You can take one puff and put it away for later, or sit and smoke on it for a while. And probably the biggest advantage to smoking these disposable e-Cigarettes is that you don’t have to step outside of the bar or restaurant that you are in to enjoy them.  Smoke anywhere, anytime, indoors, outdoors, and when you have used up your disposable e-Cig, you just throw it away!

NFL Colts Kicker Arrested for Public Intoxication After Early Morning Swim http://www.sofakingdrunk.com/2010/10/22/nfl-colts-kicker-arrested-for-public-intoxication-after-early-morning-swim/ http://www.sofakingdrunk.com/2010/10/22/nfl-colts-kicker-arrested-for-public-intoxication-after-early-morning-swim/#comments Fri, 22 Oct 2010 16:06:30 +0000 http://www.sofakingdrunk.com/?p=2367 61844622Wait… aren’t all NFL kickers drunks?  Isn’t this just expected of them.

From the AP:

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) – Indianapolis Colts punter Pat McAfee has been released by police following an early morning arrest for public intoxication. McAfee was released just before noon Wednesday, about six hours taking a pre-dawn swim in a canal in an Indianapolis nightlife district. Officers say the 23-year-old, second-year player from West Virginia had a blood-alcohol content of 0.15 percent, nearly twice the legal limit if driving in Indiana. McAfee is the fourth Colts player to be on alcohol-related charges this year. Team president Bill Polian says the team will gather facts before imposing discipline.

After being asked how much he had to drink by the police, McAfee replies “”a lot, cause I’m drunk.”  Simply brilliant!

Why Do Drinking and Smoking Go Together? http://www.sofakingdrunk.com/2010/09/23/why-do-drinking-and-smoking-go-together/ http://www.sofakingdrunk.com/2010/09/23/why-do-drinking-and-smoking-go-together/#comments Thu, 23 Sep 2010 22:44:39 +0000 http://www.sofakingdrunk.com/?p=2339 Drinking & Smoking are like a married couple; where one is the other is sure to follow.  Why is this?  Why do Drinking and Smoking go hand in hand?  Why is it that after a few cocktails or beers, you suddenly want to smoke a cigarette with your friends, even if you aren’t an everyday smoker?

This is a something we have thought about for along time and can’t seem to come up with a good explanation for why this is.   People that don’t normally smoke all the sudden want to have a cigarette after drinking a couple beers… whats the deal with this?!  We would be the first to admit that we are guilty of this too.  We aren’t smokers by any means, but after a couple cocktails, a smoke starts to sounds pretty good!

E-CigarettesWe don’t have an explanation for why this is.  The only real explanation that we could come up with for why people smoke after a having a few drinks, is just simply that they don’t care as much. Their cares about how they smell, what they might be doing to their body, and what other people might think of them go out the window. Either that, or they just feel really cool for those 2 minutes sucking on that cigarette.

But every time after you smoke you wish you hadn’t because you stink the rest of the night, yet next time you go out and drink with your friends you do it again.  A pretty cool alternative to cigarettes are the new E-Cigarettes.  E-Cigs are electronic cigarettes that have No tar, No tobacco, No ash & No smell! Plus since you don’t burn any tobacco, they don’t give off any harmful smoke, so you can smoke e-cigs anywhere, anytime!  These are definitely worth looking into whether or not you are a smoker.  They have all kinds of different flavors and different levels of nicotine that you can get.  Especially if you are somewhere that doesn’t allow smoking, you can still get your fix.

Trader Joe’s Vintage Ale Replica Home Brew Recipe http://www.sofakingdrunk.com/2010/08/27/trader-joes-vintage-ale-replica-home-brew-recipe/ http://www.sofakingdrunk.com/2010/08/27/trader-joes-vintage-ale-replica-home-brew-recipe/#comments Fri, 27 Aug 2010 16:50:43 +0000 http://www.sofakingdrunk.com/?p=2322 Trader Joes Vintage Ale Replica RecipeAs we quickly approach the holiday season, every year we look forward to trying Trader Joe’s Vintage Ale.  Every year we buy a case and taste test it against the previous few years of Vintage Ale that we have had stashed away aging.  This year, The SofaKing has been doing a lot of home brewing and thought it would be fun to try and replicate the Trader Joe’s Vintage Ale recipe.  The only problem is, we don’t have a recipe to brew.

To all our readers and home brewers: if you have tried to replicate the Trader Joe’s Vintage ale at home and have had pretty good success, please post a comment below with the recipe, or shoot us an email at TheSofaKing@sofakingdrunk.com.

The TJ’s Vintage Ale is one of the best beers that we have ever had and would love to try and make it ourselves.  We have been scouring the internet trying to find a decent clone recipe that looks legit but keep coming up empty handed.  Help us out this holiday season and post a clone recipe of the Trader Joe’s Vintage Ale below.

Cheers, and Happy Holidays!!!
