- Ways to Avoid Getting Drunk with Liquor and Beer
If you're the host in a marathon drinking session, hehehe, use strategies that will lessen the impact of alcohol . When you are feeling drunk already, try to vomit what is inside your stomach by hooking the rear of your tongue with your index finger.
- Paulie's Pub & Eatery in West Allis, WI
Paulie's Pub & Eatery in West Allis, Wisconsin, just outside the home of the Wisconsin State Fair park, is definitely worth checking out if you ever happen to be in the area. Stop in for a little bit of fun, music, and great food and beer.
- Callanan's Parkway Pub in West Allis
I ordered a black and tan, which is basically a Harp beer topped with Guiness. My wife ordered a Spotted Cow, which is made by New Glarus Brewing in New Glarus, WI.
In the world there is much that is mysterious, or unexplained. Things that simply have no answer. Such as, "Where did we come from?" and perhaps even, "Who really built those pyramids in Egypt?"
Or how about, "Why have some links in my hubs been targeted while others are not, but pertain to exactly the same thing?"
Those words still come at me with shocking surprise. I have to tell you that it's not often a literal statement to make that one's jaw drops to the floor, but I must tell you I am suffering a slight case of rug burns on my chin. My jaw literally hit the floor.
In other words, don't let the door hit you on the ass on your way out, and thanks for nothing. That's exactly what those words mean. I don't think there really is any other way of looking at it.
Look, all I want to know, and I think it's a fairly simple and fair question, is why those hubs? Why just those links? What is it about The Boston Beer Company that separates it from a link to MillerCoors? Or Sprecher Brewing Company? What is it about MegaMillions official lottery website that separates it from the Powerball website?
Of course you would be wrong. It suggests pacing. It suggests things to eat that supposedly counter the effects of alcohol. In fact, in one of the suggestions GeneralHowitzer writes, "If you're the host in a marathon drinking session, hehehe, use strategies that will lessen the impact of alcohol . When you are feeling drunk already, try to vomit what is inside your stomach by hooking the rear of your tongue with your index finger. This will give you comfort and more energy to withstand succeeding bottles of beers or rounds of shots."
Excuse me HubPages team, but this promotes alcohol. This promotes drinking. In this case it seems to promote marathon drinking and offers a great method to make yourself throw up so that you can keep on drinking despite it all.
Personally I don't care. I like the hub. GeneralHowitzer is offering something of value in his own way. So is the hub about the health benefits of beer or red wine. Neither of these two hubs encourages me to do anything. I have no plans to gang up with with the guys tomorrow afternoon after work and begin a drinking marathon.
Not only is it the right thing to do, but it is the smart thing to do when you are a "private business," as they have pointed out to me in that same cold letter. In business things have to make sense, otherwise people simply scratch their heads and leave for some other place. That'll leave a business like this one hearing crickets instead of the clacking of keys.
What is this hub about?
- Goodbye HubPages
The HubPages writing site has overstepped its bounds, has become involved in a form of censorship, and therefore I can no longer write there.

As I begin to write this, I am reminded of something I have oftentimes said. Be careful to not bite the hand that feeds you. It could be entirely true that, in a way, I do earn some money by publishing my musings and well-intentioned opinions here on
