Although drugs is decriminalized in Portugal, do not try to buy one (especially marijuana) at the main square in Lisbon while someone is offering them to you because firstly it's not legal, and second they are not even selling the real marijuana :)

Buffalo game is quite spread in Lisbon nightlife which means that if you're caught drinking from the "wrong hand" you have to finish your drink as quickly as possible. Especially popular among the students.
