    the best beer was Tuborg, there was a bottling plant in Tehran. The best of the lot of really bad beer.

    I drank Russian vodka.

      Are there bars? Is alcohol use common among Iranians, or is it more limited to visitors or non-Muslims?

        This was when the Shah was still in power. There was no age limit at the bars. I was in high school. You went in, bought a whole bottle and whatever you wanted to use to mix the drink with, we usually bought 7-Up and then they supplied glasses. We'd go set at a table and get toasted. Then we'd head to the high school dance afterwards.

        It was much more open then, the women didn't have to wear chadors, although many did, and everyone could drink.
