SD Makes List of Drunkest Cities
RAMALLAH, WEST BANK - JUNE 25: A shot of tequila and a slice of lemon sit on the bar of Beit Aneeseh on June 25, 2010 in Ramallah, West Bank. Nightlife in Ramallah is on the rise as numerous restaurants and bars are opening throughout the de facto capital of the West Bank, as economic growth has been steady since 2007 in spite of the ongoing occupation. NGO workers, international travellers and the youth of Palestine's elite, are flocking to the city's cosmopolitan scene, in-part due to the growth of venues, but also due to the restrictions on movement enforced by the Israeli occupation limiting options.

"America's finest city" has one more title to flaunt... or maybe not.
Along with the perfect weather, San Diego can now say it’s one of the drunkest cities in America. We snagged the number 10 spot in a list of 41 on The Daily Beast.
The competing cities that out-drank us include Anchorage, Boston, Austin, Fargo, and Milwaukee, which is officially the drunkest city in America.
Here are the San Diego stats:
- Average drinks, per person, per month: 12.44
- Percent of adults who are heavy drinkers: 6.1
- Percent of adults who are binge drinkers: 17.2
- Deaths per 100,000 residents from alcoholic liver disease: 8.3
