From Milwaukee to Burlington, Vermont - what are the 25 drunkest cities in America? Researchers used three metrics to capture this, the average alcohol consumed per month by an adult, percent classified as binge drinkers, and percent classified as heavy drinkers. They pulled data from Centers of Disease Control and Prevention in each city. They then took the average drinks per month and weighted it 50 percent against binge drinking and heavy drinking (each 25 percent) to get their final ranking.

I'd imagine Reno and Las Vegas would make any list for excessive behavior. #1 Boston... Irish? Would be interested to know how many of these cities are college towns, and whether students make up a good percentage of the binge drinkers (as stats from emergency rooms).
