Happy National Duck Out For A Drink Day

The day we've waited for is finally here! That's right, it's August 25th, which, as every red-blooded, big-livered American knows, is National Duck Out For A Drink Day. It's the day you actually get paid to drink! I feel just like a kid on Christmas… you wait all year for that one special day to come around, and when it does, you DUCK OUT FOR A QUICK DRINK WITH SOME PEOPLE FROM YOUR OFFICE DURING WORK HOURS. It combines all the joy of drunkenness with the immense satisfaction of slacking off. It really is the holiday that speaks to the greatness of our nation. Even the rain here in New York cannot dampen my spirits. It's a holiday all about spirits! How will YOU be celebrating National Duck Out For A Drink Day? Tell us in the comments! All typos are understandably forgiven.

I am leaving work early to go to the Hairpin meetup. I am not ducking out as much as I'm running away, arms flailing wildly.

By myself at a taqueria in the middle of nowhere california. This Pacifico is keeping me company before returning to the sweltering hot construction site.

I keep misreading National Duck Out for a Drink Day as "Take a Duck Out for a Drink Day." I think I might be quacking up.

@El Knid Well, a guy walks into a bar with a duck . . .

@SidAndFinancy: Whoops — tipsy typing! I meant Jim Beam and High Life.

West coast representing: Maker's Mark for me, champers for one colleague, Jameson's for the other. Also advised bartender that we were observing "National Duck Out for a Drink Day" – he was especially impressed by our toast: "To America!"

@ejcsanfran Another West Coaster… One drink really smoothes out the afternoon. Remind me again why I don't do this all the time?

@ejcsanfran THIS West Coaster was lucky enough to stumble into an establishment that sold Qream. Qream!
