ever since I was 16 and started drinking in bars on a fairly regular basis ... I stand.
and usually .... at the bar.
I will stand at a table if need be ... but prefer a spot at the end of the bar ... usually one stool in ... Cath takes that stool ... I stand ... and the rest of the crowd gathers around. Just can't drink comfortably sitting.
I think it goes back to the old days ... bars I "learned the trade in" ... sitting was an invitation to a sucker punch. U have a sense of humor like I do ... U better stand. Also ... standing ... U feel the drinks add up. Lotsa people are suprised by their drink total when they decide to "take a stand" ... stand up ... and quickly fall over.
