Who are you two weirdos?

Just two guys with regular jobs and regular lives and terrible haircuts who know that drinking with others is a lot more fun and productive than drinking alone. Have you ever had a good idea when drinking alone? Of course not. If you did, you forgot about it.

What the hell are you talking about?


What’s with the badge, are you related to any law enforcement?

Nope, and we stay out of their way by not breaking the law. What you see up there is just part of the uniform we wear proudly.

Then what are your colors?

Black and tan. Duh.

Are you affiliated with or are you undercover ‘don’t drink and drive’ nazis?

No. And PDCs are not necessarily designated drivers. If anything, they’re the opposite. How much fun is it to drink with someone who’s just watching you while they slurp on a coke or virgin daiquiri? Not very. We take a lot of cabs.

“Professional?” You think people are going to pay you to drink with them?

No, but that would be so cool. We’re professional in that we take it pretty seriously. Let’s be clear, we’re not about drinking prowess (though we do ok). We’re about enjoying time with our friends and family in whatever spare time we have, whether it’s a little or a lot.

How do I become a Professional Drinking Companion?

The very first step is to pick up a uniform. Creating a good impression is step one, and you have to dress the part. Sure, appearance is superficial. It’s skills that matter. But the sad fact for those of us on our first trip into the real world is that the clothes make the man (And woman. Ho, boy, especially the woman.) It was Mark Twain who said, “Naked people have little or no influence on society.”

Besides, you have to admit you have a lot of t-shirts that are way less cool than these.

Can I become a Marshal?

One must sip before one can chug. But a fully appointed PDC Deputy with all the perks and associated respect from your peers and society? Absolutely. Just get in uniform. You’ll notice your brethren are already spreading across this great land, from sea to shining sea.
