timd and I are fairly well connected with liquor stores in the DFW area. Many managers know us by name and even have our phone numbers in their personal cell phones. It's thanks to these connections that we get to always get to hear the juicy drama as it unfolds.
Now, anyone who has ever spoken to a distributor rep knows that they aren't the sharpest tools in the box. In fact, it's a wonder that they get anything accomplished with their heads so far up their asses. Despite all the stories I've heard this latest morsel of news absolutely takes the cake.
RNDC, one of the two major distributors in Texas, in their inevitable infinite wisdom, accidentally shipped the entire North Texas off premise allocation of Pappy to Sigel's. And guess what? Sigel's does not want to give it back
I'm not sure what to make of this right now, I'm going to follow up and see where the story is heading, but I can assure you there are a lot of PO'd people at Goody Goody and Spec's.
