this is something I love about drinking in person with people, taking the ones that only do it every once in a whiles booze while they're passed out on my couch.

My suggestion right off the top without reading any of the following comments is to start contributing content. Post stuff that is interesting and timely with searchable names and those threads will show up in and online search. That will bring people here if you post about popular topics. It's all about internet marketing with content you are providing. You are the solution.

You know, the thing about being a kid is, one day you are, and no one respects you, and then gawdamn, you are a notkid, and you're telling those damn kids to shut the fuck up and take out the trash, and fer gawdsakes, turn down that shit you call music, because nobody wants to hear that crap!

Oh, and get your ass off what used to be my lawn before this whole drought thing came along!

And then, you wake up a few days later, and you are Grumpy. And, God hep'ya, you have to live with Savage. That'll learn ya.

You mean clickbait? We could, like, totes get a mensh in Buzzfeed. That would be epic!!!!!!

Or... We could invent an online drinking game. Something trivia based, perhaps. See if we can name all 50 US state capitols, no looking it up on the Internet. Everyone goes one at a time n if you get one wrong n someone calls you on it you have to drink. OK I'll start off. The capitol of California is Sacramento. You go next.

What this place needs is someone "rockin' the chops".

A little respect between Modern Drunkardists, old and new (but not fake or RiPT) might help, too...

Good old fashioned cross posting in the diy booze forums will bring membership and views.

I started out in the diy forums, home distiller, Artisan Distiller, and so forth. These days I brew to drink and love heavily sampling my wares. Mrs adhd is on side too. We make copious amounts of the fine elixir in this house and consume it all in good turn. It's a good life, and we need to promote it.

never even bothered to think about that. The people that make liquor on there own charge $20 a mason jar, anyway people pay them because they do so well at their job, I have never tried store bought liquor that was made with such care.

How about a joint venture with Esquire magazine TV. They run this series called 'Best Bars in America'. They did a SoCal tour recently. They hire cabs and are real trendy metrosexuals but what the Hell. When you are desperate for web traffic you will lower your standards. They can run the Modern Drunkard video series on their show and we would carry their magazine ads.
