Albert Swearengen: Coffee, Whiskey and Bacon and Eggs

Further to the Drink Planner’s post on the drinkiest shows on television, I’ve got a few observations on Deadwood. I have only recently started watching it (pretty much all the way through.) Al Swearengen is the character throughout that you don’t know if you are supposed to like him or hate him but one thing is for certain he has got the right idea about a few things. You will only ever see him drinking 2 things, coffee and whiskey, coffee in the morning and whiskey pretty much whenever else. I’d say he wakes up with a fair hangover (though he doesn’t often show it) and a couple of times he has been seen eating or ordering bacon and eggs, clearly a man that knows how to handle a hangover.
