    Hmmmm, sounds interesting. I feel like I'd have a hard time determining which establishment I should drink in and which I should avoid.

    Anyone traveled to this area and tried it?

    Well, whether it is/was a myth or not is in dispute as noted above, but as for the originator --- ah, I don't think Caligione is quite old enough for the blame :wink: ("Revialist"? Yeah.) :

    I gotta read these headlines more carefully. I thought it was about chichonas!
