 you're blacked out, apparently you go outside and fall down knocking two of your teeth out.  Does drunky mcdrunkpants have a case against the bar for serving him shots for the last 6 hours or no?

Depends. Google dram shop laws. Varies by state. Been a long time, but I thought, even where state law allows liability, it might be limited to liability to third persons--e.g., drunkie runs over your kid.

Off the cuff, I think the typical standard is whether drunky mcdrunkpants was "visibly intoxicated" when the bar served him.

As Fake Pie said, it could also be limited to third persons, but I am not positive.
