One of the things I find kind of disappointing about Kava is how so frequently if you are outside of the islands you have to enjoy it alone. My attempts to move people towards Kava usually sputter out on taste or just "fear" I guess? Alcohol is so normalized in our society I had two beers last night and all I could think to myself is "I'd much rather enjoy some Kava with some nice people". Kava has all but replaced alcohol for me except in a social setting. I wish having a beer would be on the same level as having one of KWK's kava in a bottle things. People cringe at me for the taste and the fact I hold my nose, yet do shots of vodka and mix their spirits with caffeine and high fructose corn syrup. I live in Thailand the majority of the year and would absolutely love to open a Kava establishment but the military junta here is questionable in their perception of things although Kratom is moving towards legalization here as well as Marijuana becoming medical, but I'm a foreigner so it's too up in the air for me right now. I know some Kava bars exist in NY and Orlando and Boca that seem interesting but I've never been. I'm not the biggest fan of the pricing model some of these places use in photos I've seen where they only sell "kava".. Is it heady? Is it heavy? The day I can have a social setting similar to Alcohol that I can go to on my off-time that involves wonderful Kava I will be a happy man!
