    #18 Columbus, OH

    5 bars per 10,000 households

    16.8% admitted to binge drinking

    The CDC defines binge drinking as having five or more drinks in one sitting for men, and four or more drinks in one sitting for women. The most recent data available was from 2010. Trulia’s figure is derived from the number of bars as reported in the census’ County Business Patterns section, divided by the number of households in that metro area.

    I would have assumed this was because Columbus is a college town, but lately the high number of older YP’s I have seen three sheets to the wind in the SN is saying that is not just the case.

    Well, we do have a thread about how to cure hangovers on this site, so I guess this shouldnt be a surprise to anyone.

    Not encouraging, but not a surprising statistic.

    18th?! We can do better! Unfortunately, I can’t contribute due to pending liver failure, but I know I did my part.

    At least we beat Portland and Austin.

    With Akron, Toledo, Cleveland, Cincinnati, and Columbus on the list, we should at least get something for the most hungover state. Maybe this study can be used to convince Kasich we need that rail corridor to making drinking between cities easier and keep all these drunks off the road.

    Though, this should also fit into the whole liquor funding new jobs program.

    At least they’re wearing proper safety gear.

    To be honest, that’s a pretty good idea… Especially when the streets and sidewalks are covered in ice.
