    Re: bourbon restaurant

    I used to manage a bar in your dear old B'ham, and all the booze had to be bought at a liquor store. Beer and wine came through distributors, but I went down the street to stock the bar at the local ABC store. No discount from retail, but didn't have to pay tax since we were charging taxes on drinks.

    Re: bourbon restaurant

    Yeah, under certain circumstances (the locale of the restaurant, the type of establishment jsut to name a few) it is pure ignorance and that is what burns me the most. Certain places/people should know better.

    Just the opposite here in TN. Restaurants have to buy via the distributor and can't buy at a liquor store. Of course, there are no state-owned liquor stores.

    Sounds like a great plan. I live in Maryland and this could be a great place to meet for all the Virginia and Maryland members.

    Re: bourbon restaurant

    Travel can be a little challenging for us with two small children, but if there is an event planned for MD/VA/WV/DE/PA members who are within reasonable driving distance, we would make an effort. Any thoughts regarding time frame, etc.? We're, give or take, about 2 hrs away.
