Will be honest went there for the crystal meth candy and the guy knew it. Got what I wanted plus a free photo shoot with Walter and Jessie. Very hospitable and was a great tourist guide. Friendly and simply happy for us to be there.

Found this while exploring Old Town and had a blast. Got our fix of "Blue Meth" to bring back as gifts and also grabbed a "Cooking" apron. Very fun place.
