"I spotted a guy in the Food Court. Looks like he's drinking an awful lot. You'd better go make sure he's alright."
Otis Washington, Dead Rising: Chop Till You Drop

The Drunkard is an unmarked scoop in Dead Rising and a marked scoop in Dead Rising: Chop Till You Drop.

It takes place in Chris' Fine Foods in the Food Court on the early morning of the third day. It involves Gil Jimenez, a man who is dealing with the outbreak by drinking heavily.


Entering the Food Court, Frank should hear the sound of drunken laughter coming from somewhere inside the Food Court. Run up the small set of stairs to the right into Chris' Fine Foods (F103) to discover a very drunk man named Gil behind the food counter.

Speak with Gil who turns out to be extremely belligerent and doesn't want to heed Frank's advice.

Begin to leave, going as far as exiting Chris', and Gil asks whether he is serious about rescue. After being reassured, he then agrees to follow Frank back to the Security Room but will need assistance due to his condition.
