I called Lares yesterday, and they are still not open, but expect to finally reopen next week -- perhaps as early as Monday. This will only be for the downstairs section, though. Upstairs will not be open for another month, at least.
Kombucha is all the rage right now. Though the fizzy, sweet, fermented tea has been around for at least a couple hundred years (and possibly much longer), it seems like Americans and Europeans are just beginning to discover the probiotic benefits.
