The third option. It has a more harmonius color palette and the links on the post title have much better affordance.

The third one - the link colour matches the 'I'm drinking' button, and the border around the entry is good. It seems less noisy than the others. Is the bg colour paler on the third or is it my lcd screen. It looks nicer paler :-)

Third option - Each entry is clearly defined and the clickable elements are obviously so.

I'm going to say the first one, it shares the benefits of the third option but I prefer that links are brown rather than than red. Red has been used for the main call to action button and is often associated with errors.
