Fair warning: There will be no public intoxication or baring of breasts tonight as consultants with Anheuser-Busch and Budweiser distributor Lohr educate Mardi Gras concessionaires on TIPS (Training for Interventions ProcedureS).

This dude will drink for TIPS.

The class tonight at 6 p.m. at One Busch Place on the A-B campus will include "role-playing exercises" that teach "how to avoid potentially over-serving patrons."

An A-B press release states that three million people have been TIPed to date. (No word on how many millions more have been made "tip-sy" thanks to the brewer.)

In related news, a group calling itself TITS (Taunting for Immediate Titty Showing), will be offering on-site training when the St. Louis Mardi Gras parade kicks off Saturday Feb. 21.
