As I declared on Twitter, “For the record, I DON’T believe the world is going to end on Friday, b/c a) I’m an optimist & b) if I’m wrong, nobody will be around to care.”

But if you believe the supposed end of the world Mayan apocalypse shiz is an excuse to drink, here are a few options I’ve come across.

1) PhD wants you to be too drunk to care that the world is over. (Friday)

Includes drink specials from 11pm to 2am (One hour before midnight? Pretty stingy for the end of the world), and live music 8pm to midnight.

2) Go get drunk enough to think “Drinko de Maya” is funny at Mariano’s, La Hacienda Ranch, etc. (Thursday through Sunday)

Includes a “Drinko de Maya” which starts with their Texas Frozen margarita spiked with Grand Marnier and garnished with a pineapple Mayan crown, cherry and a gummy worm at the bottom for good luck. $11 for one, $20.12 for two of ’em.

3) Get beer-drunk and take shots at Goodfriend at their aptly named Hopocalypse party. (Friday)

There will be some featured beers (The Darkest Hour (11%), Lagunitas Brown Shugga (9.99%), Dogfish Head 120 Minute (18%), Sixpoint Resin (9.1%), Southern Star Pro Am 2012 (10%), Breckenridge 471 (9.2%) and Stone Enjoy By 12-21-12 (9.4%)), shot specials, plus “local hillbilly band” Fish Fry Bingo at 10pm. Although I should mention that Goodfriend isn’t super dedicated to this whole “end of the world” thing, since they’re already planning another event on Boxing Day.

4) Take a stand for liquor at The People’s Last Stand

Sometimes simple is best. Since some folks think the end of the world is tonight and others think it was last night, and the People’s folks are in the latter group, they’re offering folks to celebrate the world’s continued existence at PLS.

Here’s hoping we all continue to eat well, well past Friday.

If not, nice knowin’ ya…
