    Hooray! New store!

    I live in Arlington, Texas, which is spirits-dry. We can buy beer and wine, but no liquor. This means I have to travel about 10-15 miles to reach a liquor store in Pantego, which butts up against Arlington.

    Today I made a quick run up to the northwest end of Pantego just to look around for anything new or that I might want to bunker. I took the roundabout way home to stop at the southwest end of Pantego.

    On the way home, I was just glancing around, and noticed a brand new liquor store, just inside the Pantego/Arlington boundary. Within five miles from home! Of course, I had to look around. I ended up buying singles of various imported ales and stouts, since I had already finished shopping earlier.

    Can I just say, "WHEE! WHOOPEE! HALLELUJAH!" ?

    As long as you have good whiskey you're not "unemployed", you're "Funemployed!!!"

    Last time I was in the area I still saw some Weller 12 old label handles. I have a good supply so I left them. Worth the money.

    Thanks for the tip, Mark. North Texas truly is a fickle beast, so it's nice to hear about a good store.
