CZECH THIS OUT ... AT 7TH AND MONTANA!


Tongues were wagging at 7th and Montana this morning as Neighbor Hunter announced that he and his wife, Camilla, are in the process of planning a fun-filled holiday in the Czech Republic. "We're off to Bohemia," he announced, "To soak in some beer." He meant that literally. They're planning a trip to the Chodovar Brewery, a spa in West Bohemia where patrons actually bathe in vats of beer. "What else do they do?," I asked, "Cover you in yeast and sprinkle hops on you?" Apparently, the answer is "yes." Promotional literature suggests that guests at Chodovar "luxuriate" in a combination of beer, mineral water, yeast and hops ... all mixed together. Somewhere, I'm certain, there's a Czech version of Madge -- the ubiquitous manicurist from the 1970s Palmolive television commercials -- who smiles at each guest as they arrive and announces, "You're soaking in it!" Inside sources claim the "beer treatment" is "very good for the skin and hair." Sure, but does it cure what ales you ...?!?

If they'll switch it to a vat of Italian or French wine, I'm in.
