In just eight days, Jerry Seinfeld will be standing on the Saenger stage pointing out the frustrating and often hypocritical facets to life. Whether or not you were able to score tickets to the sold-out shows, there’s no reason you can’t celebrate the “master stand-up comic” coming to our city. And since this is the Lush guide, pop in your Seinfeld DVDs (or watch basic cable long enough to stumble on a re-run) and take a swig, sip or shot at commonplace Seinfeld moments.
To start off the game, take a drink when you hear the famous bass line and see the super 1990s graphic appear. You get another if the episode starts with Jerry doing stand-up, two if it doesn’t—which is rare. Take one drink when a shot of the “Restaurant” is shown, when a character drinks coffee or when Jerry answers his buzzer.
When Kramer busts through the door or Elaine pushes someone take one drink. Two drink instances may occur when George’s or Jerry’s parents make an appearance, a celebrity makes an appearance, someone on the show is dumped or when we get to see Jerry squint his eyes at his sworn enemy, Newman.
Go ahead and take three drinks if you come across an episode with Elaine’s parents or Kramer’s mom, if George isn’t wearing a shirt or if Kramer mentions his friend Bob Sacramento. And if George goes on a rant about velvet, his baldness, a girlfriend breaking up with him or anything else, just drink ‘til it’s over.
