Loco for Four Loko: Where to buy

Loco for Four Loko: Where to buy

Four Loko. You know the stuff: sugar-y, strong, available in a variety of intoxicating flavors. You WANT to hate it, because it’s a malt beverage, and possibly (let’s face it: probably) bad for you– but you can’t. Because you’re broke, and it’s cheap; because it’s surprisingly smooth going down; and because nothing kicks off a night of dancing or rocking quite like the 4L.

Unfortunately, we’re not the only ones that feel this way, which means it tends to fly off the shelves like nobody’s business. So where can you find Four Loko, freshly stocked, and ready for you to snatch it up?  We asked some of our friends where they buy the juice; here’s what they had to say (results organized by neighborhood.)
