Zeus is finally loose.

He always was…but now, in a new house. Get loose!

Zeus Lighting

Legend has it, that in Ancient Greece it would be very common for gods to transform into beggars and hobos and ask for hospitality. If you said yes, you had the god’s favor. If not, severe punishment followed. One day, a hobo knocked on our door asking for some tsipouro. We sat down together, drank and ate with the fellow, laughed and let loose until sunrise. And as the sun was rising, he slowly transformed into the King of Gods, Zeus himself. ‘I think I like it here, I am going to stay’. And so he does.
