They wouldn’t ban alcohol… Would they?
A little bit of coverage in the local papers that alcohol sales may be banned outright. Which led to panic buying in Mexico City. Who’d have thought? There are bans in a couple of places and others have put on restrictions – e.g. Quintana Roo have placed an 11pm limit on alcohol sales for the next month.
It’s not worrying us too much as “Dry March” has led inexorably to “Dry April”. I can hardly remember what a beer tastes like. Which is lucky as the brewery which makes Corona, Modelo and Pacifico has shut down production anyway. You don’t think the two are related, do you?
