Should be in objective case and not subjective case; therefore it is "you and me" and not "you and I".

Wrong. In that sentence it is the phrase that is the object. For the phrase to be grammatically correct, it must be "you or I" as they are the subjects within that clause. Drinking Beverage

Ahhh yes, clauses. That's why. I'm rusty.

From a purely mechanical standpoint it should be "me" because of its position in the sentence; however, it's incorrect English even though it follows the rules.

I hate this stupid language.
If there's one thing about the English language that I had to learn the hard way, it's that grammatical rules only exist so that there can be numerous exceptions to them. Dodgy
