Popular trend puts the Bar back in BAthRoom.
It’s been a long day…or maybe it hasn’t…it’s hot outside…or maybe it isn’t…whatever the circumstances, you feel like enjoying an ice cold beer…while having your shower. You’re not the only one, by far, who has felt this way and went with it…yes, the popular ‘shower beer’ is alive and well, and growing in popularity. The reason?? Have to admit, we have no idea, but a few theories probably include the fact that at first thought it seems so wrong (how mischievous), it is a bit of a guilty pleasure, an indulgence of sorts (why not?), and if you have kids, the shower might be the only place you’re left alone.
