Kansas City is not one of the 25 drunkest cities in America

We apparently appreciate the sit and sip here in KC.
Your liver may disagree, but according to The Daily Beast, Kansas City is not one of the 25 drunkest cities in America. This is a good thing. The annual survey bases its rankings on the number of alcoholic drinks consumed by an adult in a month, the percentage of a city's population classified as binge drinkers (drinking that leads to blowing above a .08) and the percentage of the population classified as heavy drinkers (averaging more than two drinks per day for a man and one drink per day for a woman).

Boston tops the 2012 list while St. Louis comes in at 23rd with a whopping 18 percent of the city being binge drinkers. Chicago (eighth) and Milwaukee (third) were the only Midwest cities to crack the top 10. So raise a fizzy cider or carefully measured cocktail - here's to another year of being able to hold our liquor.
