Drink club is Mykel Board's hobby. He does it for love... and certainly not money.
BUT, it's an expensive hobby, in time (website, emailings, business cards, photo-shopping, research).

DRINK CLUB is a weekly social gathering of drinkers from around the world.
NOW we've got a guestbook. Add your comments! See what others have to say. It's right here!
WELCOME TO OUR NEW MEMBERS !
if you lose the details on your way, you can always get
recorded information from
THE DRINK CLUB LINE at 1-212-674-7018 (#1). (Put the number in your cell phone!)
Also, LOOK AROUND IF YOU DON'T SEE US! Sometimes restaurants have back rooms that are
hard to spot. AND ASK, we'll usually tell a server that we're DRINK CLUB if anyone asks! In any case,
you'll see the drink club sign on one or another table. (That's the sign at the top of this page.)
Drink club is in no way affiliated with the ibec Language Institute. It is an open organization. Anyone not
horrible can attend. That means no one currently affiliated with SONY, CompUSA or the
Morgan Post Office facility is allowed.
And look at the analytics. Looks great, doesn't it?
1. Tell everyone you know about DRINK CLUB.
2. Tell everyone you know about DRINK CLUB
3. Never eat before DRINK CLUB.
4. If it's your first night, you HAVE TO drink. (But not
alcohol, if, for some weird reason,
you don't drink it.)
5. You can (and should) bring friends and strangers to DRINK CLUB.
6. PAY YOUR FAIR SHARE! Don't forget to leave
money for tax and tip!! This is NEW YORK.
We tip 20% or AT LEAST twice the tax. Servers live from their tips. Giving 10% or less is
STEALING! I don't like the system any more than you do, but that's the system.
7. On the DRINK CLUB closest to your birthday, you have one drink free.
8. If you can't find us TEXT Mykel at 646-379-4490. NO PHONECALLS PLEASE!
9. Make sure you check EVERYWHERE. We're not always easy to find. We may be in a back room-- or outside!
10. ASK FOR DRINK CLUB if you can't find us. We'll usually
tell the bartender or Maitre d' or some drunk lying
on the floor near the entrance.
11. Try to come EARLY-- or at least on time. That way we can score a table, and the on-time folks won't feel so lonely
IF NO ONE SHOWS BY 10:30, MYKEL LEAVES!!!
12. FEMALES are encouraged to join us. We don't bite. This is NOT a boy's club!

Raise a Glass to Beer -- Beer Isn't All It's "Cracked Down" to Be
RAISE A GLASS TO BEER
Beer drinkers tend to get the short end of the stick. While wine connoisseurs are thought of as chic and sophisticated, beer-drinkers are routinely portrayed as slothful, pot-bellied creatures planted in front of TVs. In one memorable news exposť several summers ago, beer drinkers on working-class Rockaway Beach in New York City were arrested (no open containers please), while the mayor sat comfortably ensconced among wine sippers at a philharmonic orchestra concert in Central Park.
But now there's good news for beer drinkers -- it turns out that by and large alcohol is alcohol, and socioeconomic stereotypes aside, the health benefits of beer are not all that different from the benefits of wine. Of course the key word here is moderation -- most experts advise no more than two alcoholic beverages a day for men and no more than one for women. So what's so good about beer?
