By the way, I'm not disagreeing with you. Your comment just brought back the memory.
While not 25, I've certainly had my share of 50 and $1 beer specials haha. You gotta love it.

For sure. Just using Chicago as an example since I have the most bar experience with it.

Milwaukee and New Orleans come to mind first. Boston and Chicago are very bar-centric towns also. New Yorkers love to party but I don't think that automatically equals hard-drinking.

NYC is not a super alcohol-centric town. I mean, for one, the city is the most Jewish on earth outside of Israel, and most Jews in NYC are Orthodox, meaning no alcohol.

Of course Manhattan and Brownstone Brooklyn have huge nightlife areas with lots of alcohol-related fun, but I would say, if anything, NYC is less drinking oriented than other major cities.

NYC doesn't feel that Jewish.

NYC has the largest Jewish population of any city on earth. It has a very visible Jewish presence, especially the Orthodox population.

Outside of Israel, it doesn't get more Jewish than NYC.

Orthodox Jews are not abstainers. There is Kosher wine after all. Some Jewish holidays, like Purim, basically require you to get drunk.

Nonetheless, I would expect Orthodox Jews drink much less overall. But NYC's low drinking level probably has more to do with having a large Muslim and Asian population.

That, and immigrants tend to drink less than native-born white Americans in general. Still, even among the white population I don't NYC would rank among the hardest drinking cities.
