Milwaukee has been rated as the Drunkest City by Forbes Magazine. They determined this by rating each city based on the following categories: state laws, number of drinkers, number of heavy drinkers, number of binge drinkers and alcoholism. What about "date rape" or "waking up with ugly people"? Oh well, here's the Top 35:

35. Nashville, TN
34. Charlotte, NC
33. Miami, FL
32. New York, NY
31. Orlando, FL
30. Indianapolis, IN
28. Detroit, MI
28. Atlanta, GA
27. Dallas/Fort Worth, TX
26. Norfolk, VA
24. Tampa, FL
24. New Orleans, LA
23. Los Angeles, CA
22. Phoenix, AZ
20. Washington/Baltimore, MD
20. San Francisco/Oakland, CA
19. Portland, OR
18. Houston, TX
16. Kansas City, MO
16. Cincinnati, OH
15. Denver/Boulder, CO
14. Las Vegas, NV
12. Seattle, WA
12. San Antonio, TX
11. St. Louis, MO
9. Providence, RI
9. Philadelphia, PA
8. Pittsburgh, PA
7. Cleveland, OH
6. Chicago, IL
5. Austin, TX
4. Boston, MA
3. Columbus, OH
2. Minneapolis-St. Paul, MN
1. Milwaukee, WI

If your city is not on this list, you've got some work to do. New York at #32? Las Vegas not in the Top 10? Very disappointing.
