    Complete with a little instruction booklet. Well, gee, I get that we're in the middle of the prairie, but we really didn't just fall off the pickle boat and have had bars here serving Ouzo for decades. It just strikes me as a little condescending. Maybe I'm being too harsh today.

    I learned everything I need to know about drinking ouzo while lying at the foot of a stairway in an Athens alley in 1991.

    “It’s a sipping drink; you pour it over ice, you add water,” Alexakis said. “You never drink ouzo without food, that’s the biggest faux pas ever.”

    Dedicated ouzo (and raki) drinkers are very vocal about the right way to drink the beverage. From the little bit divulged in this article, it sounds like Louie is well versed.

    Though he won’t commit to a specific date, owner Louie Alexakis is firm in saying that Avli Taverna (1335 W. Wrightwood Ave.) will open by the end of the month.
