According to, National "Name Your Poison" Day is every June 8. It's assumed the phrase was coined by bartenders. You can hear it said in an 1890 Wyoming saloon like yesterday.

Seeking what a customer would like to drink, it's about getting a decision. Never mind any option will be a bad decision – the first step toward Tanked City - they’re all “poison” drinks.

Although the origin of National "Name Your Poison" Day is a mystery, it is still a national "Day" - somehow. So let's make it a real Wyoming holiday.
