I wonder if this will sell in St. Louis

Saw this at the 7/11 down the street:


Of course the dolts at Anheuser Busch don't really know that "Chelada" doesn't contain tomato juice...it's simply Mexican beer with lime and rim salt.



However, for those with a nasty hangover, this might end up being the perfect breakfast cocktail.


I don't drink anymore...but I used to. I recall a drunken weekend in Tijuana when I was amused by Mexicans who were drinking their "lunch"...Tecate beer in a mug with hot carrots, onions, tomatoes and jalapenos.


I tried it. Ugh. My stomach was en fuego...

The cans alone look nasty!

I've never heard of Chelada. You must get around!

Nigel, I just want you to know I've had trouble getting on Blogger and I might have accidentally posted a comment twice. Sorry. I can be the blog's village idiot.

Hey Joules...just glad you came over! Please don't be a stranger...

I know you are a local...I'm in PB. If "Chelada" is being sold in PB 7/11 stores, I am sure they've hit your 'hood as well. AB is clearly marketing to our local "immigrant" population. I understand Cheladas are being sold in Texas border towns as well.

Well, there's a liquor store next to our 7-11 in Poway but it looks like a scary place.

I haven't been able to get on Blogger because I lost my top secret sign-in information. I found it again the other day!

I stumbled on some other good blogs while visitng Rod Dreher's Crunchy Con blog a couple of weeks ago. You and your friends at 6MB might like them, too; although, for me it's get out the dictionary and use Wikipedia to understand some of the posts (not at Rod Dreher's blog). I don't have the links but you can Google the sites if you're interested. One is the Postmodern Conservative (James G. Poulos) and the other is The American Scene, a group blog.

Thanks for the tips, Joules. I'll look for them...
