    They started switching over in the mid eighties. About ten years ago we went on vacation in Canada. To Montreal, then over to Toronto and crossed the border at Niagra Falls. The US border guard asked if we had anything to claim, any food stuff. Replied some souveniers, t-shirts, and some coca cola. They waved me on thru. I can now claim I smuggled in a half pallet of Coke If you go to a Jewish grocery around Passover you may be able to get the "sugar" Cokes, they have Yellow caps. Mexican groceries have them too, but they hide them in the back and will only sell to known customers.

    I get them from a small family owned Grocery store in Winona, (about 45 min from here), and Winona Coca Cola makes the Coke in the real glass bottle, and use the real sugar in it.

    I buy four 8-packs when I go down, and have to pay for the bottles like back in the old days of glass bottled pop.

    I did a night time gig for a few years as a bartender. Happened on a whim really, I was divorced and hanging out at a bar and made a few friends there. I worked hard at it and bought a Rolodex and put drink mixes in there and developed me a group ( Harem) of very nice looking clients. I even bought a ships brass bell and when someone tipped me with anything over a 5 spot I'd rig it. So anywho, Long island ice teas and walk me downs were the rage back then. Also shooters were the happening thing. I guess I'll always love my rum drinks the best. Good ole rum runners, rum and coke are long time favorites

    Try the bar. Bar taps usually serve the usual stuff.
