Some events people like to grab a few drinks before attending and some are more obvious than others. Sports events, college parties or even just a night out on the town. Alcohol.org asked "over 1,000 Americans how much they drank before going out and which events they did it for.

It's begging to look a lot like Christmas! It looks like the holiday brings out the booze in everyone! Family Holiday Gatherings finished high on the list after sports and clubbing. Instead of going with a grudge people apparently just imbibe to make it through. While the family gathering tops the lost there are plenty of other events people need to prep for!
