    The memories I have of that swill. I recall the mid-90's -late teens, no money, and piling like 7 people into some POS economy car with a couple of cases of warm natty light. Worst.Hangovers.Ever.

    Natty light is akin to budlight, yuck. I guess I'm still young enough to escape any negative side effects of natty ice though.

    Bud Ice vs. Natural Ice

    This guy seems to think Bud Ice is superior to Natural Ice. I wouldn't know. Neither of these refreshments have ever touched my lips.

    In my early years, light beers were just coming onto the market. I just never could understand why people would choose a poorer tasting beer. And if calories are an issue, I'd just modify my calorie intake in other ways...like pound just a few less (I know that's not an options for many). For me, eight or nine beers was my preferred limit. Two six packs in one sitting was just too much.

    I think people choose light beer so that they are able to guzzle more of it and get stupid-drunk more quickly. That's great when you're a kid, but here in the South it seems to be the most popular hobby going among grown (sort of) people as well.

    I admittedly don't have the most refined palate, but I find light beer fairly refreshing. Like water after a game of ultimate. If I'm having a drink with a meal I prefer something darker and more flavorful though.

    So true. Especially in a college town in the state that elected Doug Jones. Frat bros in the Walmart parking lot loading their truck beds with 30 packs of natty light is a regular Friday afternoon occurrence.

    Bought two pounds of Kona coffee while in Kona and brought back a half pound. $25 per pound. Having a cup right now.

    Was cool to see all the coffee fruits on the plants. A common site everywhere in the area.

    Can't have one now, but when I was in Kona, I went to the Kona Inn and had a couple of their famous Mai Tai cocktails. Very unique mix which has a great creamy texture to it without any cream. I could have drank these all day long. Six bucks during happy hour.
