    I know the majority would say "DURING!" because that's the obvious choice, but if you were in a car and you were asked to go to a restaurant first or bar, which would you choose?

    I always vote BAR. I can never ever seem to get a buzz if I've had something to eat. To me, it just defeats the purpose of drinking. I've drank on an empty stomach many times and I don't have hangovers ... I just make sure to drink water before the end of the night and in the morning.

    Pretty much nothing better than an empty stomach buzz.
  2. Bar. Get my drink on and then get right with food.
  3. After. If I eat before drinking, I feel full quicker and drink less.
  4. To answer the thread title, "yes."

  5. After....let the food decide the beer selection....but only because we don't have a choice of 'during'
  6. small snack....beer with friends....find food....
