I've had it, never got drunk on it, but know a co-worker that just moved here recently and went to a concert, drinking Kilt Lifter all night.
He said he couldn't move the next day. And he's a big boy, marine.
I just drove through NM twice.
Got a hotel room in ABQ, and I agree. Its a dirty town, I've never liked it.
I dont mind Sante Fe though, although I've only ever spent about 3 days there.
But I'm pretty sure if I spent any length of time there the artsy-fartsy allure of the place would quickly wear off after being surrounded by liberals all the time.
