    Re: Ralfy's #219 re Miniatures is worth a look

    I'm never knocked out by the mini selections I find here in Chicagoland but I still have one local store that's selling WT101 for .99 cents, so I always grab a few to take along when I'm not at home and can't bring a bottle to wherever I'm going.

    Realy, minis are not available in the city?

    Its been about seven years since I've been up there.

    I do remember hearing about the spray paint idiocy, but I hadn't heard anything about minis.

    In one of those odd law things, up until 2006, bars in South Carolina could only pour liquor from mini-bottles. It was illegal for a bar to free pour from a standard size bottle.

    My eyesight is so bad sometimes its hard to see what is on the back bar when the bottles are full sized.

    But seriously, how would patrons know what was stocked?

    They had full sized bottles on the back-bar, they were just empty...

    I moved from SC in 2006, and I recall some bars with a small display where it was visible, but generally the choice was limited to the larger bulk brands. So selection wasn't a big issue.
