Three Colorado cities listed among ‘most hungover’ in nation
DENVER — On the heels of New Year’s Eve comes a story on a topic that no doubt will hit home for many Coloradans: hangovers.
Business Insider magazine recently compiled a list of the 25 “most hungover” cities in the United States, and three separate Colorado cities rated the dubious honor.
Using various alcohol statistics including binge drinking rates, number of breweries per capita and numerous other factors, BI ranked Colorado Springs, Fort Collins and Denver as Nos. 16, 13 and 6, respectively.
Our neighbors to the north also made a strong showing: Casper, Wyo., ranked No. 2. The ranking was attributed to an extremely high number of bars and liquor stores serving a metro area of just 75,000.
But even Casper couldn’t top No. 1 Scranton, Penn. An astonishing 21.4 percent of the 563,000 metro residents admitted to binge drinking, while the city reported nearly twice as many bars per capita as Denver did.AlertMe
