  • So, Who is That Guy or That Girl?
    • Each night he's on display somewhere, but makes his most frequent appearances on weekends. He's a regular guy, but when he has too many drinks, it shows. That Guy loses control and he may not remember it in the morning. That Guy applies to anyone who, because of excessive drinking, behaves in a manner that others do not want to emulate or be around. In fact, women can be That Guy too. Check out the site to discover who That Guy is, utilize the interactive bar tab calculator, read interviews & jokes, watch videos, find out how to cut down on your drinking, how to find treatment, and check out the myspace page.
