Study Shows Average Time Work-From-Home Coloradans Start Drinking
It's five o'clock somewhere — and 'somewhere' is mostly home these days and also what is time?
A recent survey from alcohol.org found that work-from-homers in Colorado, on average, admitted to starting at-home happy hour at 5:12 p.m. — which is honestly later than we thought, especially for those of you who brought mimosas to the morning Zoom calls, but no judgement there.
Alcohol.org also shared that survey-wide, the average employee had their first drink of the day around 4:30 p.m. One in five only drank on weekends prior to the Stay-at-Home order, which we get because those were stressful times, right?
But, now that our bars, restaurants and even taprooms are starting to reopen in Northern Colorado, we're beginning to have more happy hour options (thank goodness). For a while there, our homes were our bars... and offices... and kids' classrooms (and yikes, some of those should not be mixed).
