San Francisco's Gucci Taps

San Francisco has announced (via DW) "bottled water refill stations" with lots corporate partners and so on...

Now you can get tap water out of a good-plated tap.

Nobel Peace Prize time?

No peace prize yet.


Saint Louis has claimed to have Michelob and Anheuser Busch beer coming out of home water systems during the summer months. Saint Louis in the summer--95 degrees, 90 % humidity. Need beer.

This program was nominally started in the 1960's. ;-)

I remember these when I was a kid.

They were called drinking fountains.

Going to have to agree with Josh on this one. How is this any different than a dressed up drinking fountain?
