According to 24/7WallSt.com, Mankato is the 'Drunkest City in Minnesota.' Sure it's a college town, but that's saying something when it's put up against the Twin Cities and the U of M. Not necessarily something to be proud of, and I'm sure SCSU officials are breathing a sigh of relief.

According to '24/7,' adults in the Mankato metro area are far more likely to drink excessively than the typical adult nationwide. Slightly more than 24% of Mankato adults report drinking excessively in the last 30 days, a larger share than in all metro areas in Minnesota and all but nine other metros nationwide. Mankato residents are also slightly more likely to be smokers than the typical Minnesota resident.

As many Mavericks fans say, "We'll drink to that!"
