I have, over the years, partaken and originated numerous drinking related activities. A friend of mine and I once went on a motorcycle trip and tried to drink at 100 different bars. We failed. We drank at 77. However, our rules were strict and our will was weak. We would not count as a bar anyplace we had a meal and, of course, we could not count a bar twice, even if we went back to it. Then, of course, there was the let's have another syndrome.
I also, with another friend, organized a Bar Trek in New York. This was an event where you needed to have one drink in 26 bars in one day to complete. In 5 years only 2 people actually completed this event. I was not one of them.
Now, for the last couple of years, I have had it in my head that I could have a drink in 1000 different bars within a year. I have discussed this with my wife, who thinks I am crazy, and she has agreed to support me in my endeavor.
I have also rejoined a health club and am going to prove that my tour of the bars can be completed while maintaining, and even improving, my overall physical well-being.
My journey will begin January 1st, 2005. I will keep you up-to-date on my progress on this BLOG
