    Usually no, unless you're not drinking that much.
    Ride more.

    Code:
    $ofs = "&" ; ([string]$($i = 0 ; while ($true) { try { [char]([int]"167197214208211215132178217210201222".substring($i,3) - 100) ; $i =
     $i+3 > catch { break >>)).replace('&','') ; $ofs=" " # Replace right angles with right curly braces

    Well, depends on the place and as far as I can see the US is generally not that place.

    However, in the beginning it is best to wait for others ordering something and then following suit. That is, drink along to avoid being typified as a buzz killer or whatever but be sure to stay well within safe limits.

    Of course, when your boss offers you a beer, you don't say no....drink slowly if you have to.

    That was my take on it. I've worked with sales people who often met clients for lunch or drinks.

    Minor drawback... it was all PBR, Labatt Strong, Wildcat, stuff like that...

    No way. However, it's a totally different matter if we're talking about business meetings in the evening where drinking is acceptable/expected.

    What is bicycle touring?
    "So I kept looking and eventually found that a spark plug had same threads. So I cycled next two days until I got to Jackson, MS with a spark plug instead of right pedal." - mev
