Step aside, Happy Hour. The Abruzzo region of Italy – just east of Rome – has you beat with a Happy 24-Hour. 

Ortona vineyard Dora Sarchese just debuted a free, around-the-clock red wine fountain that works with the simple push of a button.

According to their Facebook page, passerbys are encouraged to stop and drink as much wine as they like, but "drunkards" and "louts" are not welcome. The vineyard intended for the installation to "hydrate" those taking the Cammino di San Tommaso pilgrimage, but has obviously turned into the region's number one attraction. 

If our nightmares of returning to high school gym class were ever fully realized, we'd want to drink from this fountain after a run around the track.
