Google Map of America's Drunkest Cities

Last month Forbes Magazine put out an indepth special report titled: "The Business of Nightlife". As a part of this report David M. Ewalt takes a look at America's Drunkest Cities based on state laws, number of drinkers, number of heavy drinkers, number of binge drinkers and alcoholism (More on the methodology here).

Virender Ajmani (mashup creator behind US News by zip and others) has taken the list of cities from the report and created a Google Maps mashup of America's Drunkest Cities. It combines the 5 lists so you can visually plot the cities from Ewalt's article on a Google Map of the US. To add insult to injury Virender adds a Google Maps link for each city that displays nearby pubs! Who knows, maybe this will affect the rankings for the next time the survey is done!
