Reno, Nevada. #10 drunkest city in America

Men’s Health has compiled a list of the 100 drunkest cities in America.  How did they create this list?  What criteria did they use?  We have no idea and they don’t say in the article.  But, if it’s on the internet, it must be true.

What’s great about this list is that Salt Lake City, Utah which is right next to great skiing, is the most sober city in the USA.  Not making us look too fun SLC…

time to step it up Salt Lake City.

NEVER FEAR!  Reno, Nevada to the rescue!!!  Reno is ranked 10th drunkest city in America, is next to great skiing and riding, and we expect nothing less from our “Disgraced Lady of the Desert.”  You also may not know that Reno is the most interesting city in America, bar none.  Reno has the highest ex-convict per capita population in the America along with the largest trailer park on Earth.  Try to touch that.

We put every city in the following list that is “near” “decent” ski resorts in bold-red.  Of the top 10 drunkest cities in America, 7 of them are “near” “decent” skiing.

Classic Anchorage, AK night life gets them the #40 spot.
