The Best Hospital rankings by U.S. News and World Report were released overnight Tuesday. Two Cleveland hospitals made the honor roll. The honor roll is the best 18 hospitals of the nearly 5,000 hospitals around the country.
CLEVELAND - Perhaps it's due to Cleveland's sports teams' records, bitter cold winters or even newfound love for craft beer? Whatever it may be, the city scored the top spot for aggressive drinking in a national ranking.
The Daily Beast ranked the 25 "drunkest" cities in America , and Cleveland was among them.
The city scored the No. 24 spot overall – just ahead of Burlington, Vermont. The Daily Beast said the average number of drinks consumer by adults in Cleveland each month is 13.1.
But the more glaring number was the percentage of the population classified as binge drinkers: 20.4 percent – the most of any of the 25 cities included in the ranking. Boston was the city with the next highest number, coming in at 20.1 percent. Boston also topped the list overall with 15.6 average drinks consumed by adults each month.
