|Drink Me magazine, a lifestyle publication about drinking and bar culture, celebrates alcohol (beer, wine, spirits) and the drinking establishments in which they’re enjoyed. The first issue was April 2009, followed by a second in May/June. Hopefully, July/August is just around the corner.
The first issue was a bit thin, but for free, there are nuggets worth perusing. Issue 2 provides a sampling of historic drinking locations in San Francisco, where the publication is based; and three articles that philosophize. Attractive graphics are interspersed with quotes from famous people on alcohol.
You can download the issues (or read them online) at http://drinkmemag.com.
If you’re looking for an opportunity to share your deep knowledge of cocktails, spirits and/or drinking establishments, or take photos or create related artwork, this may be your opportunity. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

|The magazine’s title comes from Chapter I of Alice in Wonderland. Alice, who “had never before seen a rabbit with either a waistcoat-pocket, or a watch to take out of it…burning with curiosity…ran across the field after it, and fortunately was just in time to see it pop down a large rabbit-hole under the hedge. In another moment down went Alice after it, never once considering how in the world she was to get out again.” Down the rabbit hole, Alice finds that she’s too big to get through the doorway into the garden, until she spots the bottle with the label that says “DRINK ME,” which shrinks her down to ten inches tall.
For those who remember the tale, this turns out not to a simple solution, but is the beginning of a series of adventures—not all particularly pleasant, if you remember a Queen of Spades commanding her minions to lop off Alice’s head (sounds like someone is having the DTs!). Hopefully, Drink Me magazine will provide happier adventures for its readers. Whether or not it’s appropriate for an alcohol magazine to use a prepubescent girl as its logo…well, we just won’t go there.
