How often do you drink at lunch during the work week?

PaulF | Apr 13, 201104:29 PM     182

I'm just wondering if other posters on Chowhound like to take a drink at lunch.

The reason I'm asking is that among my co-workers, only myself and one other person I sometimes eat lunch with has a drink at lunch. For me, it's a beer or two. If I had more than that or had a couple of cocktails I'd have trouble doing my job well after lunch. My occasional lunch companion drinks beer or wine and he always drinks alcohol when we have lunch together -- I get the impression he has a drink at lunch every day. I drink at lunch sometimes, not all the time.

I'm wondering if it's just my circle of friends/co-workers, the city I live in (L.A.), or what?

So, to repeat the question:

Do you drink at lunch during the work week? If so, what and how much do you drink? Does it matter if your lunch companion is drinking or if you're alone?

I guess that's more than one question.

Interested in hearing the responses.
