The Tea Party gained instant name recognition for its extreme politics and misspelled signs, but it also benefited from co-opting a catchy phrase. Now, the name has spawned several imitators. First, grassroots organizers formed a response group they dubbed the Coffee Party. And this Saturday, a group of Latinos calling themselves the Tequila Party will protest the Tea Party's negative position on immigration. But why should they have all the fun? Here are nine more libation-themed parties we wish existed.
The Dirty Martini Party
A movement to take down American prudery and promote sexual freedom, aided with an incredibly stiff cocktail. Variation: the Redheaded Slut Party, for young women across the world reclaiming the word "slut." Possibility for coalition-building with hippies and hipsters who don't like to shower.
The Bloody Mary Party
Everybody knows that women are useless one week out of the year because of their periods. This party is for them. During the "dark time," the Bloody Mary Party is sequestered into a hut in the woods where they chug milk, eat bonbons, pour blue liquid on their tampons, and drink. A lot.
Sacrilegious Wine Party
For atheists and wine enthusiasts wanting to Take Back The Wine from religious groups, who liken the fruit of the vine to Jesus's blood or ruin the flavor with excessive amounts of sugar. Atheists are the biggest lushes around, so it's only fair that they dominate an entire libation genre.
