There’s finally a way to tell which cities, states and even counties (if you’re into that sort of geography) have the most bartenders. Aka, which cities and regions are better equipped to handling you and your thirsty friends. CareerBuilder completed a analysis that shows how many bartenders per capita are in different places in the U.S. And to no surprise, the Midwest states have some of the highest concentrations of bartenders. Because what else do college kids living next to cornfields have to do?

Click around to see if your city or state really knows how to get their drink on. And then proceed to plan an entire trip around bars and drinking based on this graphic. Because you need to do that at least once.

I knew college stats would come in handy at some point.
