Our neighborhood contains one of Cairo’s few liquor stores. It is called Drinkies.
The beer selection is limited to Heineken, Stella (Egypt’s own crummy lager) and a few other equally uninspiring options. This will perhaps be the hardest part of moving here from Wisconsin.
Thank God they have South African wine. Egyptian wine is considered undrinkable by everyone we’ve asked and I’m not eager to challenge the conventional wisdom.
