Bah. As soon as these stores are empty, they'll just go shop at a normal grocery store "ironically".

If this storm results in dozens, or hopefully hundreds, of hipsters starving to death it will have been worth any other cost.

I am in the park slope neighborhood and just went to one of the "normal" grocery stores. Definitely long lines, but it was mostly families and very normal. Was able to get what I needed with minimal hipster interfacing. I figure I didn't want to get too much since if we have to evac how the were we supposed to carry 5 tons of food?

Last year for Irene I did enjoy the folks at Target stocking up on milk and frozen pizzas though.

I just went to the key food on Flatbush about five blocks from the coop to pick up a few things for dinner tomorrow. Having some people in the building over since everyone is around. There was about a 20 person line inside the store but everything seemed normal. The only things out of stock were bread which makes sense and vegetables which seemed weird to me. I think the whole foods and coop craziness is because it's all the young unprepared peoples who suddenly realize this may actually be a serious storm and don't generally stock much food in their house. Those older or with kids already have plenty around or went out yesterday.

I stopped going to Trader Joes because the stuff wasn't all that great. They have a few things I like, but I rarely bother to go there. I had a girlfriend who insisted on shopping at Whole Foods. Even when she was struggling to pay rent, she would shop there and spend at least twice as much money than if she just went to a regular supermarket. Last I heard, she was homeless. She's probably now begging for money to get organic juice and sustainable macadamia nuts at Whole Foods. She pretty much went off the deep end and should probably be locked up.

Whole Foods is a f*cking rip-off.

Dedicated sustainability freaks should be shopping local farmers' markets instead.

I don't know if he's kicking the dog so much as putting a foot out in an attempt to corral it. Maybe he's kicking it, I don't know, but it wouldn't be much of a kick with all of his weight centered over his left leg like that.

/Has kids, dogs. Corrals them with extended feet all the time when hands are full.

People panic and stock up before storms. The really f*cked up part of the story is that they had to go to seperate stores to buy wine. WTF is wrong with you people?
 
2012-10-28 11:03:36 PM  
I guess the hipsters have to buy wine because they want to make sure it's fresh. Personally, I'll just suffer through these old dusty bottles of wine I have stored away.

Ah yes, but no more 1966. Let's splurge! Bring us some fresh wine! The freshest you've got - this year! No more of this old stuff.

shiatty laws.

You can't sell wine, liquor and beer in the same store (outside of restaurants that are for dine-in consumption).

Beer = supermarkets and bodegas. Cant but real wine or liquor at them.
Wine & Liquor = at liquor stores. Can't buy beer at them.
 
2012-10-28 11:25:43 PM  
Ha! I bought all my wine on Friday! Not sure how the storm will affect Colorado, but I'm not taking any chances.

I could live comfortably for months on the food and other consumables I have stored. When I see stories like this, I'm thinking that I should have a backup survivalist compound in the mountains, since all that stuff just makes me a big attraction to my starving-within-two-days neighbors.

The vast majority of people do not realize that a large city is only 72 hours away from famine.

I'm storing my emergency supplies at my neighbor's house. They don't know it, but there are certain advantages to having several thousand rounds of ammo on hand.

A lot of their stuff is darned expensive, but the store brand is often a pretty good value. 365 Brand or something like that. And the food bars are a miracle when you are on the road for six months, living on clif bars and diet coke.

That said, I have a C-Town, two Trade Fairs a Key Foods, an Associated, and several excellent produce markets within five blocks of my apartment, so fark Whole Foods and Trader Joe's in the eye.

Ya they had two HUGE changes in the law in the past few years. They could be open 7 days a week where before they had to close for Sunday, than one day didnt matter.

And now they can sell liqueur stuff glasses, bottle openers, fancy paper bags, but not a book on what to mix, ice, or anything to eat.
