It's that time again - time for all of you to pretend you're going to get a healthy start and drink less come the New Year, only to see that fall out the window in about the first 20 seconds of 2012. Well, here's for trying. We're winding down 2011 by doing something we rarely have done over the few years we've been booze blogging here at NY Barfly - we're taking a few days off. We'll be back on the flip side of the New Year to continue bringing you news of everything you need to know about liquid culture (isn't that such a mature-sounding way of putting it?). Until then - it's the week between Christmas and New Year's Eve - why are you reading this, shouldn't you be drunk already?
