[More added 1/17--check the last slides] With bars open until 4am and politicos ready to party, there will be a lot going on to celebrate Obama's second Inauguration. Even if you missed out on the official ball tickets from the Presidential Inauguration Committee, there are still a lot of events you won't want to miss (in fact, most of the ones here will be better parties, period)! Balls come and go every 4 years, so pay attention to learn what's hot and what's not for 2013.
The Obamas and Bidens have been invited to basically all of the events listed here. They are only obligated to show up to the two official balls but just might pop in when you least expect them to...

After bringing you the low-down on the secret city beneath your feet, we're going to the bottom of your cocktail glass for some Big Apple bartending history. From the Bloody Mary to the Cosmopolitan, check out these specialty drinks first mixed in NYC. And while some of these stories' origins are a bit hazy, they all seem to have at least a dash of truth (or vodka?) in them. We'll drink to that! More»
I know you don't want to acknowledge that the superficial Hallmark holiday is about a week away, but it is, and single people everywhere should be prepared. We know you have excuses for not snagging Mr. Right (again) this year, but save them for your mom. You'll definitely be needing alcohol to either survive the night, so here are ten Valentine's Day cocktails that won't disappoint. More»
If the kids are our future, then the following may be cause for some concern, or rather mass panic. To achieve a quick buzz, many are coming up with a few "creative" ways to get boozey including consuming alcohol through some not so PG places.

Welcome to "Traveling With The 99%," our new guide to getting the most out of your holiday travel—whether you're going by plane, train, boat, or automobile. Today's topic: essential gear.
As you may have read this week, beloved actor and Ted Kennedy fetishist Alec Baldwin made news when he was kicked off an American Airlines flight Tuesday. No, it wasn't a Kevin Smith situation (Alec's actually looking pretty trim these days), but instead because he supposedly couldn't stop playing Words With Friends on his iPhone.
Love 'em or hate 'em, the holidays means many forced family "get togethers," and therefore, double-fisting alcoholic beverages while Aunt Sally yaps your ear off is a must. Most go for the classic mulled wine or eggnog, but we have a new batch of tasty holiday drinks that are good to that very last desperate drop. More»

[Photo via] Well (thankfully) this party escaped our Calendar radar. But that doesn't mean we will forget about a recap post! Apparently some serious and mischievous partying went down in North Sea last Friday night. When the 47-year old Manhattan man came back to his home on Bridies Path after leaving Aug. 21, he was surprised to find used condoms and $170 worth of wine, champagne and food missing from his fridge, according to Patch. I'm imagining something like Jake Ryan's party in Sixteen Candles. More»
Old people! It never really looks like they're having that much fun, does it? Whether it's reading Newsweek (that magazine still exists, right?) with a magnifying glass or filling their refrigerators with batteries, our nation's elderly have perfected the art of making all tasks seem like laborious chores. Even golf, once that most noble of ways for rich white people to escape their hellish families and drink all day, is now the exclusive purview of those nearly too feeble to lift their clubs. Well, we'll let Great-Uncle Cornelius hang on to golf for the time being, because we've got bigger plans: we're taking Bingo back with the Underground Rebel Bingo Club. More»
