Only in Mexico will the tour guide try and get you drunk Bad mistake on my part as I was on a bicycle and had to pedal back to town. I took a nap on a park bench to sleep it off and some dog woke me up later by barking at me as I was napping.

I did three brewery tours in Milwaukee a number of months ago. Shocking how PC they were.

There is a mezcal museum outside Victoria and I need to stop in there some day. Clearly on my bucket list.

Personally, I am not that into wine and brandy but all of my friends are switching to wine and I guess that I need to experience the stuff. Irish genetics and all that. Wine is supposed to be better on the old body than hard likker.
