Seattle, you have a drinking problem.
It's true and it's about time somebody told you. ;) According to the CDC, Seattle is ranked 18th among the 50 largest U.S. cities for the amount of people who have gotten drunk in the last 30 days(yesterday doesn't count). Even worse, in the Northwest alone, Seattle is ranked #1, beating out Tacoma and Spokane! Guess we're all a bunch of lushes. In our defense, we have way more bars and people than those other cities. We also have professional sports teams which basically equal drinking. More info here
