Dept. Of Believability

Whew! Providence dodged a bullet by being ranked at only 69 on Men’s Health Magazine’s most dangerously drunken cities list…wait,  the numbers go the other way you say? Whoops. In comparison, Boston seems relatively safe at 19 while Denver and Durham, NC ranked the safest ’cause they don’t know how to party.

Congrats to the Jersey Girls
