Putting Out the Sparks
There are a lot of sad hipsters in Washington right now: MillerCoors announced today that Sparks, the popular, slightly citrusy alcoholic energy drink, will be reformulated to remove the caffeine, taurine, guarana and ginseng -- you know, the only reasons people drank the stuff.
The attorneys general of 13 states, including Maryland, had complained that the drink was "marketed to young drinkers, who were already more likely to have risky behaviors in driving and other activities." Really. Here we thought the worst thing that could happen was that Sparks turned your tongue orange.
Anyway, if you want to get your Sparks while you can, we remind you that at Saturday's Nouveau Riche party at DC9, both admission and Sparks are free between 9 and 10. Stop by to enjoy the sweet taste of freedom one last time.
(Red Bull and vodka drinkers, they'll be coming for you next.)
