Trinidad Pepsi Machine Sold Malt Liquor

Wow, apparently I missed a hell of a Trinidad Neighborhood Association meeting last night. A reader alerted me to a DCist post in which they followed up on a tweet sent from the meeting stating that MPD had identified a Pepsi vending machine in the neighborhood that was actually selling malt liquor instead of sodas. The price was $3, and no one has claimed the machine.  Who says community meetings are boring?

Dang! That is enterprising, find a need and serve it. Somewhere there is probably it's sister, a ciggy vending machine.

$3 for what I'm assuming is a 12 ounce can? Gentrification is everywhare? What was it? Belgian? And what is the difference between malt liquor and beer?

put some vacuum sealed used panties in one of the slots and it's like I'm back in Yokohama, mama!

But, seriously; anyone got some used panties I can have?

Slow claps for the entrepreneurial spirit with no proper direction--but I do appreciate the attempt. Go get 'em kids. There is always a story to take a dinner party from this neighborhood!

I like how people are acting like this is so ghetto or something. Some friends of mine had a machine set up like this in their house in college.

Also, as another commenter mentioned go to Japan they are everywhere.

Relax...
