Where do you like to go to get a drink?  And, what do you drink when you go there?

That's what we talked about this week for What to Eat Tuesday on the Early Edition of WWL First News.  So it became What to Drink Tuesday.

The questions were:  Where is you favorite place to drink?  And, what do you drink when you go there?

We got nearly 100 suggestions texted to 870870.  There were only a few places that got more than one vote, and none that got a bunch of votes.

So, what this tells me is that a lot of people like to drink close to home, and that there are a lot of places to go get a drink.

Here's the list:

  • Millside in ponchatoula , a cold fatty natty
