Happy Four Loko Friday, Everyone! 

Four Loko is probably going to be banned by next week.

What is Four Loko? It's only the most dangerous (and, of course, most popular) malt liquor and energy drink beverage on the market!

And there's a good chance that the FDA is going to ban Four Loko, as well as all the other caffeinated malt liquors, as soon as next week after scores of college students have been hospitalized nationally, including a group at Central Washington University.

And the Oregon Liquor Control Commission is looking into what they should do about these drinks, too. I dropped them a line yesterday and a spokesperson said they were meeting today. I'll keep you posted.

And I'll also provide some insight as to what this stuff tastes like/does to your brain and long-term friendships.

So who knows. This may be the last Four Loko Friday ever. Of course, this means that eagerly curious drinkers are rushing to stores to pick up an armload of the conveniently sized 23.5-ounce cans. Scientific data: One can= 4-5 beers and 2-3 cups of coffee.

But in reality, no one should be drinking an entire can of this stuff. Why? Oh, because stuff like this will probably happen to you.

Update: The OLCC announced this afternoon (Friday) that commissioners will meet tomorrow in Portland to discuss a possible ban on Four Loko and other caffeinated liquor drinks. In other words get 'em now for all your holiday party needs! Drink up, grandma!)

  • Let's Find These Scoundrelly Bar Thieves

    • Jun 27, 2012
    We at the Blender believe in good ol' American justice -- and every other kind of justice. That's why we're asking you, the Internet reading folks in Bend, to help us find the low-life couple that distracted local filmmaker Chris Kas, then proceeded to jack his leather jacket which contained his wallet, keys and a borrowed HD video camera.

  • Don't Miss The Ascetic Junkies At Silver Moon

    • Dec 2, 2011
    It’s been a while since we’ve seen the talented (and now married) Matt & Kali in Bend Oregon… but that’s all going to change tonight at Silver Moon Tap Room! If you’ve missed past coverage of The Ascetic Junkies, well… you must have been hidden under a rock. From their 2010 album This Cage Has No Bottom, to the new music they are creating (and are sure to share with us tonight), most people just can’t get enough of their unique folk/rock/pop/dance goodness.
