This two-leg beer mug was walking around the Old Town in temperature as low as some -20C, could speak English and didn't want any money for a picture with Toyin. Toyin didn't want any cash from Mr Beer Mug as well :-). Whenever you meet the mug in Warsaw pass him greetings from VT-crazies, please.

It was walking advertisement of Piwna Kompania restaurant when we had great VT-meeting previous evening. Well, they know how to run a business effectively. Good luck and let all those other bad and over-priced restaurants I was unlucky to visit in Warsaw go bancrupt or change soon :-).

Hmm... advertisement of any alcoholic beverages (including beer) is illegal in Poland. But "smart" beer companies advertise beer in TV commersials. They say that it's alcohol-free beer. Indeed, there is always very, very small writing on TV screen: non-alcohol X beer. No-one buys this alcohol-free beer but each brewery produces it to be able to use it in these tricky TV commerciala. Well, maybe we will see the world's first non-alcohol vodka soon :-).
