wine, women, and song

Hedonistic pleasures and vices, specifically drinking alcohol, having or pursuing sex with women, and seeking general entertainment like singing or dancing. Usually said of and by men.

When asked what was the secret to being a successful writer, he responded dryly, "Wine, women and song."
