Wisconsin Leads Nation in Binge Drinking

In a recent study performed by 24/7 Wall Street, the top metro areas for binge drinking were identified across the US.  To identify the U.S. cities with the highest and lowest excessive drinking rates, the group reviewed the percentage of adults who report binge or heavy drinking across a total of 381 metro areas.

Here are the top 10:

Appleton, WI
Oshkosh-Neenah, WI
Green Bay, WI
Madison, WI
Fargo, ND
La Crosse, WI
Fon Du Lac, WI
Ames, IA
Eau Claire, WI

Mankato, MN

The top three are within 60 miles of each other in the Fox Valley of NE Wisconsin.  That's a lot of schweel in one small area.

Considering I work in Appleton and live in Green Bay, there's a whole lot of drinking going on.

I wonder if they conducted this study after the Packers got knocked out of the playoffs?  That'd explain a lot...
