POCATELLO, ID—Leaving no part of his evening of inebriation to chance, real estate broker Kyle Burtz meticulously laid out his drinking strategy Saturday night, from the number and type of drinks and the time needed to consume them, to the amount of money he would take with him to ensure a burrito on the walk home. "At approximately 8:30 this evening, I will eat precisely two Stouffer's french bread pizzas to properly line my stomach for the 4.5 beers I will imbibe at Shakey's Pub," Burtz said. "From there, I will fastidiously adhere to a single kind of alcohol—provided there is not a special on Jameson—and complement every drink with a glass of water, until such time as I see fit to stumble into the parking lot and throw up on a small shrub." Burtz' strategy did not reportedly contain a contingency plan for his friend Jon buying everyone shots at 12:30 a.m.
