An upside to the potential collapse of the single European currency: cheaper wine! The downside is a worldwide financial crisis, but it probably won't hurt so much if you're drunk on a fine, newly-affordable Italian red. [Via]
You know what else is known to soothe pain?
A glass of wine is always half-full.
Oh, please. I go home to NYC from Spain and the wines I pay 5€ in Madrid retail (which would cost 11€ in a Spanish restaurant) I see on NY restaurant wines list for $45. I know booze gets a big markup and the Yoo-was (formerly the Euro) is high, but jeezus.
Now cheaper Belgian beer, that is a cause for good cheer.
