My friend Todd Zuniga (the founding editor of Opium Magazine) suggests the following for my visit to Riga:
“The best bar in the city, by my count, was John Lemon’s — a divey sort of place where we had ‘hot shots.’ Half shot of vodka, half shot of absinthe, lit on fire and drank through a straw.”
I guess that this raised three questions in my mind:
1. John Lemon’s? Lemon — as in the citrus fruit?
2. Is it legal for me to drink that?
3. Will it hurt?
