Social Circle: What's the craziest thing you've done after drinking?

"Bar Month" at is back for another round! The whole month of February, we're serving up intoxicatingly fun articles on bars and clubs – including guides, the latest trends, bar reviews and more. Grab a designated driver and dive in!"

Those of us who have a history of imbibing have a few stories that range from shameful to hilarious. This week, the Social Circle shared their drinking-related escapades. Feel free to add yours via the Talkback feature.

And for the record, suggests moderate drinking at all times and for drinkers to never, ever drive.

Diane Heyer Dowland: "Had a stripper jump on my back for a horsey at Club Paradise (now Solid Gold) and we fell, tearing my ACL and miniscus causing surgery. And the end of my kickball career."

Emily Dunn: "Accepted a marriage proposal from a near-stranger and flew to Vegas. (Actually got married, but I was sober at that point – just too stubborn to back down from a drunk dare. Stayed married for a dozen years.)"

Betsy Holmes: "Continued to drink alcohol!"

Russ Fascia: "Pissed in a cold air return. I moderate these days."

Kelly Jeffords: "Married the idiot I was drinking with."

Jeffrey Jordan: "Unfortunately, I have to rely on the testimony of others. This is not always reliable since they were also intoxicated."

Juli Kaufmann: "Ran from an overweight police officer while taunting insults, 'hid' behind a light pole, then handed over my fake ID once he caught up to me. Yeah, you can guess the rest – well except the part where I stole my inmate's tuna sandwich while waiting in the holding cell."

Paul Kennedy: "Sexting Mitch McConnell."

Jeffrey Krawczyk: "There's going to be a LOT of stories that qualify, but people won't be willing to admit."

J.k. Livin: "If you can retell the tale, then you weren't that wasted."

Charles McGonegal: "Started a winery."

Lisa Malmarowski: "Well, here's one I'll share ... Was busted while skinny dipping in a Madison lake after bar time and had to walk out of the water to the glare of a police flashlight. But first I tried hiding in slimy, slimy weeds. Yeah, didn't work."

Derek Mosley: "How about coming to court for your drunk driving trial?"

Daniel Nathan: "Drive."

Liana Odrcic: "Weighed my head on the bathroom scale in my dorm in college. I think it weighed 10 pounds?"

Jeanne DeMint Rode: "Drove on the back of a moped on the Bridge to Nowhere before it led anywhere."

Jen Skladanek: "Pick ONE? Hmmmm ... Played charades at a biker party with a dude named HillBilly 'til 9 in the morning. Good times!"

Kris Von Tischler: "It's a tie between completely insulting Brian Setzer to his face in front of his entire band and flooding my apartment. (They both happened in the same night, by the way)."

Caitlín Zhenotdel: "Peed on McCarthy's grave. I'd do it again, given the necessary amount of alcohol to create just the right amount of urine. It's a science."

Chris Zito: "The statute of limitations does not yet allow me to discuss the situation at this time."

Drove my car drunk through Riverwest without stopping from North Ave almost to Capital doing 65 mph. Drank for another 3 hours, then did it again all the way back. Topped off the night by going to IHOP, exposing myself to the waitress (who called the police), then going to Bradford beach as the sun came up along with two friends who will remain anonymous, streaking for about 30 minutes while screaming at passing cars on their way to work and grabbing ourselves, then getting into a high speed chase with an undercover cop and getting pulled over outside of Judges, getting thrown in the holding cell at 5th district station and having to walk back to my car in the brightest sunlight that ever was. I went home to my parents house and handed my father the car keys.
