You want to feel like you’ve earned that frosty mug of ale in front of you before lifting it to lips. Or at least I do and assume a few others out there do as well.
So, may I propose gathering together to volunteer, or do good in some capacity - maybe spend an hour picking up litter at a local park - or visiting a pet adoption agency and making a collective donation, etc.
And then...and this is where it gets good...and theeeen hitting the pub to throw back a few drinks, rub elbows, laugh loudly and often, discuss philosophy, Voltaire, Jabba the Hutt, Chevy Chase movies, the military industrial complex, Niburu, new wave music, cheese, etc. And, of course, loudly bragging about deeds well done so everyone in our vicinity at the pub may know that we are their betters!
