I think I have a problem with the definition of "binge drinking". I fI recall, it was having 5 drinks in one "sitting". If this is the standard, then nearly everyone I go to clubs with (who drinks and doesn't have to drive themselves home) is a binge drinker in the course of a night of clubbing.
It seems to me that the cases of extreme alcohol consuption that are life-threatening are done mainly at house parties anyway.

Isn't this ban on drink specials ON THE WEEEKEND? Majestic's special is a Monday thru Thursday special right? So where is the conflict?
