Turns out a Grand Rapids bar actually serves up a Kool-Aid shot for thirsty fans.

What Does It Mean To 'Drink The Kool-Aid'

This is gonna get kind of dark for a second.

The Phrase 'Drink The Kool-Aid' originated from the events that occurred on November 18, 1978, in Jonestown Guyana, where members of the Peoples Temple, a religious movement founded by cult leader Jim Jones, committed mass suicide by drinking a flavored drink mixed with cyanide, Since the people used Kool-Aid in their drinks to commit suicide, the phrase was coined as a way to show blind devotion to something.
