Stop whining over the price subby.

But what if you're using it as an enema?

Why? The cheap stuff tends to have a higher alcohol content and I suspect that's all the guy cares about.

Didn't click, were they at Trader Joe's?

But subby, $3.04/bottle is the price for the ritzy wine available in that part of Florida.

ChrisDe: Didn't click, were they at Trader Joe's?


The fact this is happened in the Panhandle of Florida should answer that question.

Somehow I doubt Trader Joe's carries $3 wine.

Shouldn't it be called 3 buck chuck then?  It rolls off the tongue just as well.

That shiat's like $8 a bottle in Nova Scotia - damn liquor taxes

You know how some human evildoing can really make you mad at people?
This sort of thing just makes me sad at people.
It's not that a person would be willing to compromise their values.
It's that a person wouldn't even bother to snatch a nice Merlot if they're going to compromise their values.
Have a little taste for heaven's sake.

That and they are less likely to have an RFID tag that will go off when you leave the store. There's a reason why the expensive liquor bottles are either kept behind the counter or have that black prevention (?) top. Most annoying thing in the world when the cashier doesn't take it off and you didn't notice at the checkout.

You assume those people have values.

A friend of mine asked a liquor store owner why all the crappy cheap booze was stocked by the counter but all the old single malts and high end bourbon was on shelves at the back of the store. Liquor store owner said that the people who shoplift booze aren't the ones interested in high end whiskey.

reminds one of an early SNL skit. Bill Murray as a street wino but he and his chums would bum for change until they had enough $ for a serious fine vintage bottle. Then they'd get shiat faced and loudly argue the merits of that bottle against other fine wines they've sampled.

I remember when Cakebread wine was afforable.

If anyone wants to shoplift wine, head on down to my local grocery store. A 70-year-old woman was at the self-checkout, pretended to scan a magnum bottle of wine, and then started walking toward the exit. I brought it to the attention of an employee who was standing 10 feet away who, with as much overtly deliberate effort as one can put into such an action, laboriously shifted her eyes to me, made eye contact for 5 seconds, and then stared back into the ether, most likely dreaming of a better life than working at that shiatty store.

Now, now. Nothing can quite match a large order of poutine with donair meat on top like a fine Thunderbird or Wild Irish Rose, particularly at 2 AM.

Trader Joe's just opened by my house in Houston. It looks like a hipster trap.

True. Not only do they not care but they're not supposed to stop shoplifters. At least the one I worked at as a kid. Conversely, to paraphrase Pulp Fiction, you could get your head blown off stealing from a convenience store.
 
2013-02-17 11:42:52 AM
Stupid. Should steal the cognac instead.

Anyone else notice that the wine they were drinking in Bill FARKING Murray's mansion in Zombieland was all $5 or less at Trader Joes?

We call it three buck chuck. I assume that people call it two buck chuck because it use to be cheaper? Dunno. Anyways, it's drinkable and it costs three bucks. Win.

But, hilariously, "Arbor Mist has a lower alcohol content than most wines," at least according to Wikipedia. (The official website is lacking in information regarding alcohol content, but I'm finding figures like 6.5% through Google.) So, uh, good luck to this dude.

It is, or at least was, $2 in Cali when first introduced. Its $3 or $2.50 here in Washington.

Really?  I've found those anti-theft tops to be something of a joke.  They often just fall off the bottle, and when they don't, you can remove them with a car key easily.  Maybe they have better ones where you are.

The one time it happened to me I had to use a large flathead screw driver and a hacksaw to get it off. Granted I might not have been doing it right, but it was on there really tight.

It wasn't "wine", it was Arbor Mist!
