Dallas, The Drinking Game!
For the rest of the world, the body is a temple. Here in Texas it's a dive bar where booze lives, so to celebrate the return of Dallas, we've put together a little libation inspiration. The show airs tonight at 8 p.m. on TNT, and whether you choose to watch it from the reclusive safety of your couch or join us at tonight's Angelika premier party (it's free!), you'll want to knock a few back, Texas-style. (Side note: If participating in this game in any place other than your home, call a cab. You don't want to wind up in a paddy wagon because of fictitious exploits on Southfork Ranch.)
Also, we just got word from the Angelika that they'll have hard liquor in honor of tonight's event. Here's a list of available premier party bevies (cocktails will run you $7.50):

And now, let's crack one open in honor of the Ewings.
1.) Every time an oil rig bursts, drink. 2.) Money shot of Reunion Tower, drink. 3.) If a nearly forgotten half-sibling emerges, drink. 4.) Scenes obviously filmed in Fort Worth, posing as Dallas (ie, stockyards) pick a friend to drink. 5.) Dallas places posing as other Dallas places (AT&T Center as "the airport") drink. 6.) Creepy Old Person nookie, drink a lot. Then, drink a little more. 7.) Patrick Duffy gets overly moral, has fatherly ethics talk with son, drink to forget. 8.) If those 1980s shoulder pads make a cameo, shrug and drink. 9.) If the SMU campus makes an appearance, drink. (Lucy Ewing was an SMU cheerleader in the '70s.). 10.) If it ends on a cliffhanger, shotgun. 11.) Every time a woman appears wearing a bikini or lingerie with high heels and blinged out jewelry, drink. 12.) If Larry Hagman's face collapses like an eroded, deep ocean cave -- shots!
See y'all tonight!
