Fact of the day:

Hungarian Gypsies may only drink brandy at 3 points during the day: First thing in the morning, in the middle of the night at a wake, or by women prior to going on a rubbish scavenging expedition.

From http://www.sirc.org/publik/drinking6.html

Referenced to Stewart M. (1992). I can’t drink beer, I’ve just drunk water: Alcohol, bodily substance and commensality among Hungarian Rom. In D. Gefou-Madianou (ed.), Alcohol, Gender and Culture. London: Routledge.
