Me and my roommate one summer (probably 1985 or 86) decided to see if we could drink A to Z in Champaign/Urbana (though don’t remember going anywhere in Urbana) all in one day. After doing a little research, we realized it needed to be Z to A for timing purposes (our Z was Zorba’s and it wouldn’t be open late enough to do A to Z). There were only two letters we couldn’t find places for — Q and X, so we combined them and drank a Dos Equis in a La Quinta Inn parking lot. We actually made it all the way through — finishing at The Alley Cat — with only one mishap. I believe it was at the C (can’t remember place), though it might have been the Brass Rail. They wouldn’t serve my partner in crime, and then when he was drinking out my beer he dropped it, and we were kicked out.
Certainly not the smartest nor most responsible thing I’ve ever done, but thankfully other than a nasty hangover the next day we came away unscathed.
