The alcohol of choice for underage drinkers is Bud Light, according to the first national survey looking at what brands young people consume the most. Underage drinkers tend to stick to a small number of alcohol brands, according to the study conducted by researchers at the Boston University School of Public Health and the Center on Alcohol Marketing and Youth at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. The top 25 brands accounted for nearly half of youth alcohol consumption, while adult consumption is spread among different brands.

Is there any bar or nightclub in Baltimore worth a $20 cover charge? If so - and I'm not convinced there is - it certainly was not Paparazzi Nightclub on a recent Friday night. The dance club that replaced the concert venue Sonar in February describes itself on its website as "one of the top destinations to visit in Baltimore nightlife. " It was only a destination if someone were in search of a test of patience. Paparazzi is split into two rooms, just like Sonar . On this night, the smaller area held a "Ladies Night" hosted by 92Q's Konan.

The Bud Light Triathlon kicks off at 7:30 a.m. tomorrow, but for the first time in seven years, it won't be at the Inner Harbor. Instead, the starting gun will be fired in Delaware at Lums Pond State Park, about 30 miles south of Wilmington.The triathlon, which sold out almost every year in Baltimore, moved to New Castle County, Del., because the race had outgrown the city, said Kara Lovelace, public relations director for CAT Sports, which runs the event."Our races were getting so big that we were having problems getting street closures," Lovelace said.

At the risk of getting too existential for our own good, we pose this question: When is a bar officially a sports bar? If it serves beer and the grainy 27-inch Sylvania in the corner is turned to the Ravens even though there are only three people watching -- whoops, make that two, since one of them just passed out (but still gripping his Bud Light!) -- is that a sports bar?

IF YOU WERE offended by Janet Jackson's Super Bowl mini-striptease - or Nelly's crotch-grabbing or Kid Rock's flag-wearing or the Jackson-Justin Timberlake bump-and-grind that preceded her exposure - here's a little suggestion: Don't buy their albums. Don't go to their concerts. If those classy Bud Light commercials where the dog bites the guy's crotch upset you, don't buy Bud Light. If you were outraged by the Cialis commercial - in the middle of a football game, I'm fielding questions on erectile dysfunction from my 12-year-old, when I can barely explain what a screen pass is - don't buy Cialis.

At the infield fence near the turn for the last quarter-mile, Dan Stachura, John Reckner and their friends had marked off a prime piece of real estate with the same type of yellow tape used at homicide scenes. Their only complaint: The limited beer selection at Pimlico is a crime. Stachura, 43, and Reckner, 48, gave the race course managers some credit for improvement -- noting that the selection is no longer limited to Bud and Bud Light. "They have an older, more mature crowd that's not worried about spending money," Reckner said.

There are probably as many economic indicators as there are economists. There is the Dow Jones Industrial Average, which this week leapt to its highest close since September 2008 after the Federal Reserve announced plans to buy $600 billion of U.S. Treasury bonds. There are private payroll jobs, which last month grew at a faster clip, almost double what analysts had predicted. Private payroll growth for October was reported yesterday at 159,000 jobs, the best since April. Then there is the "suds index" — beer sales.

It's 30 minutes before game time at Camden Yards, and Greg Schwalenberg peers out at the vast expanse of empty green seats. He grimaces. "What kind of crowd are they expecting?" he asks a nearby usher. "Let's see, 10,000," the man replies. "It's been this way most of the season," Schwalenberg says with a weary smile. Schwalenberg has sold beer at Orioles games for 31 years, and he knows that with four empty seats for every one filled, he'll have to scramble all over the outfield stands to sell enough Budweisers and Bud Lights to turn a solid profit for the evening.

The middle of August brings together a tourism trifecta: School won't start for another few weeks, baseball is still in full force and the football preseason is under way. Many people will find themselves staying in downtown hotels, visiting the Inner Harbor, catching a game and, yes, grabbing a drink at the hotel bar. Hotel bars are the odd uncles of the nightlife scene. They're often clean, streamlined and sterile, with pricy drinks. But the service tends to be better than your average corner bar, and when you're living a few floors up, the convenience can't be beat.

Arnie Greenspun was trying to bring some attention to his Towson bagel shop, so he posted a sign that offered, "Carbs galore. Extra carbs at no additional cost." Boy, did it catch people's eye. "Some people were just sticking their head in and saying 'I love your sign,' " said the owner of Arnie's Bagel Cafe on York Road. "It was a real conversation piece." While the popularity of diets such as Atkins and South Beach created practically overnight a multibillion-dollar industry in low-carb products and marketing, a backlash to all the weight-loss obsession has begun to creep into some advertising messages.

Bees Distributing Co. and Anheuser Busch just might make the bar at Reunions and the Mason-Dixon Rugby team of Carroll County as famous as "Cheers" and barflies Norm and Cliff.Tired, grubby and dressed in uniform blue-gray stripes, team members were topping off a rigorous practice Thursday night with beer and boisterous camaraderie at the Westminster restaurant when they played right into the spotlight of the Bud Light crew collecting footage for future TV ads.With a little encouragement and no makeup, the local players rehearsed a few bars of their own material: a modified rugger anthem, set to the tune of "The Battle Hymn of the Republic."
