Odd that I would miss it because the entire rest of the store is arranged just like every other Safeway. GRRRR.. Yes, wine & beer are available, but no liquor. And then the thought translated to Costco...how can I not buy premium liquor in large quantities for a great price?? Yeah, well, gotta travel home to Cali for that one.

One of my good friends in the OC has promised to send me a Costco sized bottle of Ketel One for my bday, but that's not till July!!!

Same here---- In the "dry" cities, they don't even sell beer/wine in grocery stores. When I first moved here, there was a grocery store right out back of my place. After moving and unpacking all day, I ran over there for a bottle of wine. Wandered thru that damn store and couldn't find it. I asked the clerk where the wines were and he said "Garland is dry, ma'am". I asked him what that meant and he gave me a look like I must have spent my life wearing a safety helmet, if you know what i mean.

At least Plano is wet, so we can get beer/wine. But we still have to drive 30 minutes to get our liquor, and we're shutdown on liquor on Sundays too. When we go, we look like lushes because we stock up on everything and walk out about $100-150 lighter in the bank account.

Good God, only in America...I bet you can buy cigarettes 24/7 at these places....fu@kers! I've never heard of a dry city until now. I wonder how that started? You guys would be drunk fools here...we can get liquor delivered to our front door (up until 2am of course).

No liquor in NJ grocery stores either? Who knew? My friend in Louisiana goes to the drive-through dacquiri spots.....you can drink and drive but you can't buy on Sundays. The logic is so crazy! I'm learning so much from this thread, thanks Shelley for starting it!

Wait a minute, did you say you can get alcohol delivered?!?!? WOW! I live in PA where we have to buy our alcohol at State Stores (aka alcohol stores) that until like the last couple of years were not open on Sunday. Sometimes you just want a nice glass of wine and too bad for you! oh, and we have to buy our beer at different stores, usually a beer barn or beer depot, sometimes a pizza joint or something like that.

 

I have heard of the Buzz Aldren and wanted to try it, so i am happy to have the recipe!

Okay I'm going to stop complaining about the no alcohol after 2am in CA thing because you guys have it really tough! State stores are new to me too! Yep, some liquor stores deliver direct but we also have something called Pink Dot that delivers until 3am (alcohol until 2). Pink Dot kicks ass because you can order almost anything.

 

Like say it's midnight and you don't want to leave the party, Pink Dot will bring you a bottle of Ketel One, condoms, tampons, advil, anything. Even pregnancy tests...lol If you're hungry they'll bring hot food. If you're cooking they'll bring groceries. Usually within 30 minutes.

 

I swear when I first moved here and lived in the dorms our orders used to go something like this - "Yeah we need a 12 pack of Heineken, a bottle of Jack, zig zags, toilet paper, Marlboros, 3 tuna melts, and rocky road ice cream....oh and Doritos". LOL We were young and lost our minds!

 

And they only charge $3.50 to deliver, usually within 30 minutes. Look:

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
