Santa Monica's Wine Expo has, in addition to wine, a collection of over 70 100% blue Weber agave tequilas. What they also have is a lot of peculiar signage. Is there any connection? A distinct possibility.

The wine shop has been screwing around with semantics ever since it opened nearly twenty years ago. We've put together a Dateline-worthy photo documentary, snapped last night, of the wine shop's current political opinions (forewarning: the employees are staunch Chianti supporters).

For more information, wine bottle purchase is not required. Just ask manager Roberto Rogness about the new Prosecco guidelines, and he'll obligingly debate your afternoon away.
