Haight-Ashbury and Electric Kool-Aid

BABETTE: Yeah, Taylor, this protest is gonna be very mellow, very peaceful.

TAYLOR: Well, you can hang out in Haight-Ashbury and drink as much electric Kool-Aid as you want, Babette, but I’m preparing for the worst.

Haight-Ashbury, a district of San Francisco, named for the intersection of Haight and Ashbury streets. The neighbourhood is known as one of the main centres of the hippie counterculture of the 1960s, although it was also a centre for the Beat counterculture in the 1950s.
