A reference to a series of Saturday Night Live (SNL) skits by comedian Chris Farley in which he plays an overweight, out of work, motivational speaker who lives in a van down by the river. He is routinely hired by concerned parents to speak to their children about the dangers of gangs or drugs. In response, he overstays his welcome, trashes the house with his physical, slapstick humor and scares the kids by using his life as an example of what not to do.
"If you do drugs, you'll end up like me... living in a VAN, DOWN BY THE RIVER!"

its much funnier when he says it, trust me.

Fill a solo cup with beer. Take a deck of 52 cards. Two people each draw a card. The person with the highest number (1 - 13) doesn't have to do anything. The person who draws the lowest card has to chug the beer for the amount of seconds equal to the difference in the cards. (example: Anna draws a four, Patty draws a nine). Anna has to chug beer for five seconds (use a stop watch). If you draw a joker, the person who drew the joker has to chug for three times the amount of the other card (example: Patty draws a joker, Anna draws a six. Patty has to chug for 18 seconds). The goal of the game is to finish the entire deck of 52 cards in the shortest amount of time. Can be played with multiple teams going against each other.
Hey Anna let's play Up The River Down The River tonight...

Okay Patty. It's on. Bring all your friends...
