You betcha. They have the best selection I've ever seen for ciders. They carry Old Rosie which I thought was only available in the UK. Tons of other stuff and they make cider cocktails. If they have cherry cider and a bourbon barrel aged they can make a cider manhattan which is amazing and super cheap.

That sounds amazing. Must try to reproduce.

hershy799: Well done on the tag, subby


I agree. Brilliantly played - ironic, even.

aphexcoil: Just out of curiosity, but is robbing a bank even worth it? What's the maximum amount of cash that a teller generally keeps in their drawer? I can't imagine getting more than a few thousand at best for a possible 3-5 year sentence (larger if weapon is involved). Wouldn't it make more sense to get into embezzlement, wire fraud, money laundering, etc.?


no. always avoid 'Federal'. if you rob a liquor store and get $4500.00 you are forgotten in under 2 weeks. if you rob a Bank for $4500 there will be rabid armed alphabet agency zealots searching for you for the rest of your life. most banks / credit unions are not worth it, the take is too small and their location is not conducive to a good hasty retreat.

Rob the cash room at a large amusement park on a 3 day weekend and use a motorcycle so you can negotiate through the traffic.Have a white Ford van waiting 3 miles away. When cops see the van, they will think another load of Mexicans and leave you alone.

When I working in banking many moons ago, we kept in regular contact with the local FBI office. At the time, I recall them saying that the average take in a bank robbery was under $2000. And generally, you'd be looking a 10 year sentence to start with. I always advised people to stick to writing hot checks - for a first offense, you might just get probation and a suspended sentence.
