Working up a thirst

Today's offerings at "Taylor Entertainment Spot," a hole-in-the-wall corner tavern / bodega in Congo Town, Monrovia

The proprietor wandered out of his closet-sized shop to learn why I was taking a picture of his wall, so I struck up a conversation. I know what "Man Power" is, as I had the misfortune to drink some of it in Ghana a few years back. What's "God Father?" I asked.

"It's this," he said, reaching into a plastic bin of empties. A petite bottle of this fine whiskey goes for 80 Liberian dollars. That's about $1.10.
