    Primal booze at a convention

    I'll be away on a business trip for eight days. I know there will be drinking (a bunch of writers hanging out? Oh yes, there will be drinking), and lately, wine has been hitting me hard after just one glass. Any booze recommendations? Sure, I could go the no-booze route and have club soda with lime. But for those times I'd like something with a kick...what do you suggest?

    Wine doesn't sit well with me (always get a headache). Clear alcohol seems to do the least harm. Having plenty to eat helps too of course.

    Here's Mark's post on booze:

    That said, I'm a beer guy. If you prefer beer, take a bit of a holiday and don't beat yourself up. That said, use good practices otherwise. Eat as primally as possible, get some sleep, some exercise, etc.

    Long ago. Neat. Recall not liking it. But tastes most definitely change...

    Actually, if I want to feel "tipsy" after just a drink or two and not be tempted to have more, eating well away from the drinks is a good idea. I find myself actually, strangely, less likely to get drunk this way. Much easier to tell when you're nearing your limit.

    Eat a good meal full of nutritious stuff later on to quell any stomach issues if you need to. Or, just sleep it off.

    I do fine with red wine myself. Something about white wine doesn't sit well with me though. I usually avoid it. And yeah, vodka or rum are pretty good liquor choices for most. You can go NorCal Margarita if you want to impress your friends with your sophistication though (they don't need to know what it actually is).

    Scotch and soda has never failed me either though.

    Also, bonus points if you can convince a friend to down a mixed "four horseman." xD

The metal in my head clangs and clings as I walk - freaks my balance out. So the natural thought is just clogged up. Totally clogged up. So we need to unplug these dams, and make the the natural flow... It sort of freaks me out. We need to unplug the dams. You cannot stop the natural flow of thought with a cling and a clang..."
