Edit: It sounds like a stupid question, but from the couple of things I've heard about trying to walk home, and what that one person said that I can't read because the thread review is mysteriosly missing, it sounds kinda like you're not allowed somehow. Which wouldn't be that surprising to me, since in the USA, people get as freaked out about drunk driving as they do about child prawnography.
You can drive drunk. The first time you try it your cousin tells you something like "You have to be the biggest idiot in the world to drive drunk Niko.", but doesn't stop you. And the car goes but weaves on its own, and the controls are erratic and don't function correctly. Also if any cop spots you, driving drunk (even if you aren't crashing) they will immediately try to pull you over and arrest you.
So they made it possible but the game tells you and shows you how stupid it is.
Oh and "Going out drinking" isn't a minigame or anything. you decide to do that, go to a bar and time jumps a few hours ahead and you then stumble outside falling down drunk. Niko stumles around and weaves while the camera bobs and weaves, fast camera movement will result in the scene blurring, controls become more of a vague suggestion than useful directions. Your character then sobers up over the course of the next few hours (gametime) which takes about 5-10minutes (realtime).
