Top 5 Drinking Holidays

fourth of july

Caitlin Reid, San Diego – Ah, holidays. Whether you love them or hate them, holidays are notorious for binge drinking. Sometimes as a joyous celebration of the togetherness of family and friends, other times as necessary escape from the togetherness of family and friends, the presence of booze at any holiday gathering is welcome. Thankfully, it’s almost always socially acceptable to get your drink on at a holiday party or dinner, and there is an array of specialty drinks that only appear on the shelves once a year that you’ll kick yourself for missing out on a few months down the road if you don’t partake  (mmm…eggnog…).  At Caveday, we enjoy a good stiff drink on just about any holiday.  But in our opinion, there are a few select days of the year that always seem to make the masses a little thirstier than others. So without further ado, here‘s our picks for the top 5 best drinking holidays.

rehab in vegasPenny Harcourt, Taos – Well, if the daffodils in my yard can be trusted, summer is finally on the way! Summer, the season of baseball, backyard barbecues, beach days; and of course, hand-in-hand with all these events, day drinking.

The Walk of Shame


the walk of shame
Caitlin Reid, Los Angeles – After a night of hardcore partying there are few words more ominous, more heartbreaking, more dreaded than “Walk of Shame”. The glory of a passionate connection followed by a cuddly sleepover is almost always masked by this parade of embarrassment. You wake up in the morning and the panicked search for your underwear and dead cell phone begins, mascara burning your eyes, head pounding, nausea building; all of your normal hangover symptoms, however crippling they may be, take a backseat to the fact that you must gather what little pride you have left and march yourself home wearing the remnants of last night’s saucy outfit. Take a deep breath. Go to your happy place. Put one foot in front of the next and hold your head high, girl: this is your walk of shame.

The Holiday Guide For Alcoholics

drunken santa claus

Medina Maitreya, San Francisco – Ah, the holidays are upon us yet again; Time for jolly over-eating, jollier over-drinking, and usually a lot of over-spending. And if you’re like most people you can also expect family squabbles, possible DUI’s, and of course… hangovers.

Let’s start our discussion with the family dynamic.  Psychologists say we all have expectations of family love during the holidays. We want the occasions to be “perfect” and usually go through a great deal of trouble trying to make it so.  In fact, we count on the holidays to make up for the rest of the year.  I mean, my family maintains its “harmony” by keeping a safe and comfortable distance from one another during the rest of the year… and somehow we’re all just fine with that.

Caveday Invades India

caveday in indiaMatt Elmore, San Diego – Namsate, my friends.  Caveday’s resolve in quest for the best hangover cure knows no bounds.  This month I had the pleasure of visiting India, home of one of the world’s most ancient cultures.  What did I think of the Taj Mahal? The Ganges?  Couldn’t tell ya.  During the daytime, we were way too hungover to even consider venturing out into the mayhem.  The operation was to see how the Indians get down.  Mission accomplished.  To put it lightly, we got bombed in Bombay on the daily.

The Burning Man Hangover Survival Guide

burning man artMedina Maitreya, San FranciscoBurning Man is an annual week long event held in the Black Rock Desert in northern Nevada. It takes its name from the ritual burning of a large wooden effigy on Saturday evening. In 2008, 49,599 people attended Burning Man. The event is described by many participants as an experiment in community, radical self expression and radical self reliance. To some it’s a spiritual experience. To others it is ultimate artistic fulfillment. And to a select few thousand it’s hedonistic debauchery at its finest.

Hangover Pill Review: Drinkwel

Drinkwel hangover pillsNicole Novak, San Diego – Similar to supplements like ‘Liver Rescue,’ the ‘Drinkwel’ hangover cure is an all-vegetarian capsule meant to ease your suffering on that worst of days: hangover day.

The gelcaps are packaged in a little bottle that comes in a little satchel with a little tag for instructions – very Alice in Wonderland but they go down smooth and feel all natural while they’re doing it. There’s kind of an herb-alicious multi grain scent to them, and the ingredients list reads like the salad section at Applebees. Below it, “embrace the oxymoron: become a healthier drinker.” Hmm.

The Best Movies for Hangovers

Caitlin Reid, Los Angeles – There are many strategies to surviving a Caveday: find and devour satisfying food, remain horizontal for the majority of the day, avoid bright light, to name a few. Among the most fulfilling things you can do to counteract a killer hangover is watch a movie. Wrapped up in your coziest digs, warm in bed, watching a movie can be one of the best hangover cures out there.

A great way to pass the time and escape the horrors of your current reality, we highly suggest this Caveday activity no matter the degree of your hangover. It is important, however, to choose wisely when it comes to film selection. What may be your favorite sober movie could set a disastrous downward spiral into motion, sending you deeper into the inevitable depression that comes along with being hungover.  Fear not! We’re here to help you in the selection process.
