You like people who talk a lot and love a lot of things.
You know what amaro is and you want to get nerdy about booze of all kinds.
You're an argumentative, queerish, pinky out, chartreuse-sipping, tamale-eating, always curious food and drink obsessive who likes to read too.
You're an avid learner and while your hours away getting lost in wikipedia tunnels and archive databases; Spotify and youtube; and books and books and books.
