Ask Bacchus: Who’s Your Ideal Drinking Buddy?

It's Tap Tuesday. All tap beer at Bacchus is $2 - all day, all night. And don't forget Trivia Night on Thursday at 7pm.


A reader recently asked, your blog covers a wide range of topics from sexy fiction to advice to events and happenings at the bar.

If you could pick a celebrity to get drunk with, who would it be?

Our answer: Bob Harper

Bob has the ideal traits of a drinking buddy. He is one of the most genuine people with an outgoing and caring personality. He’s extremely talented and successful and he's an amazing human being. Sure, he's handsome and physically fit, but it's his spirit that's most attractive.

We love a guy who thinks it’s OK to cry in the gym. Over the years we’ve watched Trainer Bob bring forth sweat, tears, and maybe a little blood as he pushed Biggest Loser contestants to their limits, but he did it with a big heart. He loves seeing people get their lives back, and that empathy is another characteristic that we love about him.

Bob's coming out on national tv in 2013 (trivia Q) was pretty amazing, too. He told the audience “I haven’t talked about my sexuality on this show ever, and now meeting (a particular contestant), I really do believe this is the right time. I want to show (him) that he doesn’t have to live in shame.”

“I knew a very long time ago that I was gay…growing up there was so much repression in my family. I think that when I came out to them when I was 17 years old…there were so many obstacles to overcome.”

Harper added,

“But being gay doesn’t mean being weak. Being gay doesn’t mean that you are less than anybody else. It’s just who you are.”

What a guy. He doesn't skirt around the truth. We'd love to drink with him.

We'll grab a beer with Bob Harper if our dreams come true. You should, too. He'll probably have a light beer. 

Whichever you choose, it's Tap Tuesday at Bacchus and it's definitely a bargain.
