...And not just the Balinese beer, but wine, vodka and any other adult libation. A new piece of legislation has been brought to the parliament of Indonesia asking for the potential ban of alcoholic beverages on the tropical vacation island and across the rest of the Muslim country.
If you have ever been to Bali, you know how ridiculous this whole topic sounds. The island is a tourist mecca attracting travelers with daydreams of sitting poolside sipping on a fruity cocktail made from fresh squeezed fruit juice. If relaxing is not part of your itinerary, there are storefronts and cafe-fronts full of sunburned Westerners enjoying a cocktail or beer. Even our own trip last year was dotted with some interesting cocktails and other beverages, both alcoholic and kiddie-safe.

All good things must come to an end, and such is the case with the bartending career of Angelo Cammarata. At 95 years young, he's the world's oldest bartender, but he plans to finally throw in the bar towel some time in the next couple of weeks. As an interesting AP story points out, Cammarata served his first drink - a bottle of Fort Pitt beer - at his father's grocery store just moments after Prohibition was repealed in 1933. He's been slinging the sauce ever since and only rarely indulges in alcohol himself, one of those secrets to a long life that we'd rather not hear on a Saturday.
