“I drink to make other people more interesting.” ― Ernest Hemingway In the great world of tending bar there is a myriad selection of customers one would encounter; The Social Drinker, The Self Defined Outcast, The Fish Out of Water, and last but never the least, The Freshman. Each level of drinker has its advantages in social circles and also has equal negative repercussions. Most of these classes aren't built from years of drinking, rather are formed through the personality traits they already have developed through their childhood and young adulthood. Only when alcohol is introduced to the equation, we see these great classifications shine through and become polished for all to enjoy. In the wild, one would typically encounter the common Social Drinker before all others.
It was a bonding activity, an excuse to gossip like women, and an escape from their home life. In Ferguson’s essay on Rip Van Winkle, he states that there was a “male drinking cult that pervaded all social and occupational groups” (532). It wasn’t an outing or successful get together unless the party was drinking and made sure everyone knew they were doing so. The tavern, or inn, in Rip Van Winkle is described as a “perpetual club of the sages, philosophers, and other idle personages of the village”(Irving 44). The bar was a gathering place where men could get together and complain about their lives and the inner workings of the town, and, because of their drunken states, there was no blame placed upon them because they were not responsible for their actions.

Therefore they have different experiences while attending bars. One of the typical bars, for the age group of eighteen to twenty-four year olds, is the college bars and clubs that are located throughout every major city.
The Combined Effects of Alcohol and Caffeine Associated With a Variety of Health Risk Behaviors Combing caffeine with alcohol is becoming a growing popular trend for people who are going to have a long night of partying: as high as 54% of college students (Heinz, Wit, Lilje, Kassel, 2013). Although the partiers find this mixture to be helpful, researchers in this article find that there may be a correlation between caffeinated alcoholic beverages (CAB) and risky behavior (i.e. driving under the influence, unprotected sex, etc). This study was intended to outline the effects of caffeinated alcohol on affective, cognitive, and behavioral measures specifically in young drinkers. Heinz et al.
In popular culture, we see alcohol as a medium to release inhibitions and socialize. The consumption of alcohol is major social activity that is practiced all around the world. It is seen as a custom when individuals become of age, but when does drinking alcohol become more of a burden than a fun activity?
