Welcome to Fingers!

It’s a newsletter by Dave Infante about drinking culture, being online, and beyond. Around a thousand people read it each week because it’s smart, funny, and free. Sign up and you’ll start receiving weekly-ish dispatches about what, where, how, and why we drink, written by a two-time James Beard award-winning independent journalist.

Plus, if it’s not your thing, it’s easy to unsubscribe. Do it:

With each edition, you’ll get a totally free edition focused on some aspect of drinking in America that you might have missed. It may be an author interview about drinking in the suburbs, or a report on the campaign contributions of a major player in the hard seltzer space, or an essay about liquid marketing gimmicks being hustled down our willing gullets by The Brands™. If you like thinking, drinking, and thinking about drinking, you’ll like Fingers.

Fingers’ logo and banner art were drawn by the very-talented Friend of Fingers Daniel Fishel. Check out his work, then pay him to draw stuff for you, at o-fishel.com. The rest of Fingers’ artwork, including everything below, comes from Dave himself, which is why it’s so bad.

You can also find Dave Infante on Bookshop, where he curates The Fingers Reading Room for anyone seeking to augment their personal reading lists with books about booze, labor organizing, climate change, and so forth.
