I thought I'd died and gone to heaven when I discovered Otlob, then I find out there is this magical place where you can order alcohol and it will be delivered directly to your house.  What more can you ask for in a Muslim country where any drink other than fruit juice is hard to find?  I mean fruit juice is great and all, but you can only drink so much.  And personally I prefer mine for breakfast or mixed with a little somethin' somethin'. 

Locations: Zamalek- 155 26 of July St., Mohandeseen- At the end of Game't Al Dowal St., Maadi- 9 Streets beside Cilantro CafĂ©.  Delivery- 19330 from anywhere.
Price: Ten beers is just under 60 LE including the discount for bottle return
Atmosphere: Booze without the pain of lugging home the bottles and if you drink too much, guess what?  You're already home!

When you call they register your cell phone number and address in their system for future deliveries.  Novel concept isn't it?  Nairobi, take note. They deliver a selection of beer, including Egyptian brewed Stella and Sakara, and wine, Khayyam is a popular one, also made in Egypt, in a variety of bottle sizes, or if you're throwing a par-tay you can go with cans.
