Ever have that experience of meeting someone at a bar and they talk your ear off for an hour about mezcal, sustainability, traditions, and all the palenques they’ve visited? Can’t get a word in edgewise? It’s even better when you’re a woman and they’re a man? Congrats, you’ve been mezplained!
Granted, people have a right to be excited about new discoveries because we all got incredibly excited the first time we met mezcal. But there’s a sense of proportion that many don’t bring to this thing. Special thanks to Rebecca Solnit for her inspiration in this realm.
