Fun without drinking?

I was a bartender for a little over 7 years. People would ask me things like, “What’s your favorite drink?” Or questions like that. Truth being told, I’m not much of a drinker. I’m a guy who can tell you how many drinks I had in a year, not just on Saturday night. This kid asked me the other day, “What beer do you like?” I said, “I’m not much of a drinker.” Then he asked, “Then how do you have fun?” 

I started thinking about people in my bar and how many people would come in and not drink alcohol. Turns out that there weren’t many. Usually the people that would drink would save their money to play video poker, or not drink to be their best at karaoke that night. Well until I told one guy that whiskey can clear up your vocal chords. It didn’t matter if I was right or not, three shots in he thought he was George Straight. But none the less. I might put more thought into this. What were my customers like who didn’t drink.
