In the wise words of SNEWS Editor-in-chief Kristin Hostetter, "There's plenty of fun to be had each night at OR and the beer is always flowing. Know your limits, pace yourself, and don't overindulge. There's nothing worse than hitting the floor the next day with a full docket of appointments and a slamming headache."

Her advice: "Have a spacer—a glass of water—between each adult beverage and get to bed before midnight."
