A drink or beverage is a liquid intended for human consumption. In addition to basic needs, beverages form part of the culture of human society. Although all beverages, including juice, soft drinks, and carbonated drinks, have some form of water in them, water itself is often not classified as a beverage, and the word beverage has been recurrently defined as not referring to water.

[close] An amusing gathering of witty minds, fun stories, and exquisite libations. We read books because we are. The purpose of this club is to read fun books, gather together, and socialize with a fine beverage in hand and opinions on tongue. This is for relaxation and fun. If a member is busy, they don't need to attend every meeting, nor do they need to read any books that don't interest them. This is a relief from stress, far from assigned reading. The main genres we focus on include, yet are not limited to, fantasy, sci-fi, steampunk, historical fiction, mysteries, and maybe some horror or thriller for good measure. Every story of worth is up for consideration.
