TL;DR version: no.
Around here those (fixies and liquor cycles) don't actually overlap.
My casual ethnography indicates that people who intend to get
"schwasted"  ride cruiser bikes or knock-ff brand 50cc scooters.
The kids who just want to look cool are on a mix of (different)
specific bikes/scooters/mopeds, and some who ride these same vehicles
do so out of a Punk and/or Minimalist ethic rather than for aesthetic
reasons. Two well-known brands (in either case) are Puch (mopeds) and
Chris King components (fixies). Bianchi still holds great hipster
appeal, too. The Raleigh Pistadex  seems to be at a healthy 510
using his math. 
So there you have it. Fixies are not liquor cycles--at least not in
the RDU area.
