InterNations Tbilisi Event - “Woland’s Speakeasy”
"Have mercy, Queen," - He croaked, -"would I allow myself to pour vodka for a lady? It's pure alcohol!"
Margarita smiled and tried to push the glass away from her.
- "Feel free to drink," said Woland, and Margarita immediately took the glass in her hands. "
In fact, in this scene the characters are in 1926, Margarita is only 19 years old, she is completely innocent and tries vodka for the first time in her life, yet she does not have a clue as to what feelings arise in this case. But I think you do!

Woland is the mysterious foreigner and professor whose visit to Moscow sets the plot rolling and turns the world upside-down. Woland's name itself is a variant of the name of a demon who appears in Goethe’s Faust: the knight Voland or Faland.
