There’s another type of alcoholic, the high-functioning alcoholic.High-functioning alcoholics often seem to have everything going for them.But generally, it’s amazing how much you can know about a person from just a few photos, a one-sentence bio, and whether or not they opted to flex topless for a bathroom selfie. My first stop was the bar at the Gramercy Park Hotel, because it’s near my apartment, and because rich people go there.Annoyingly, everyone there was either in a group of friends or already on a date.
