I'm happy to (belatedly) report that "Hopsicles" have returned to the Rustico bar just down the road from me in Alexandria, Virginia.
You may remember that earlier this summer the bar ran into trouble from the state Alcohol Beverage Control for violating an obscure, anachronistic law stating that alcohol must be stored in its original container until it's served to customers. ABC didn't rescind that dumb regulation, mind you. Rather, Rustico worked with ABC agents to figure out a way around to comply with it.
I plan to sample the wares this week.
