I thought the headline was referring to "wine tasing".

Seriously sick of kissing the ass of the wine industry in these parts, and that goes for craft and micro brews as well

I welcome any small step towards treating adults like adults.

Odd thing to say.
Enjoy your Kendall Jackson/Miller Lite.

For a liberal state we have all kinds of restrictive laws on alcohol. It's always good to see one that actually expands where and when we can drink.

If you're familiar with the way the tax structure in this state works it's not that odd.

Millions of dollars in tax breaks for local (read 'expensive') beer and wine producers were passed on to the consumers of cheap, mass produced wines and beers.

So Joe Sixpack is underwriting Smedley Highbottoms taste for Walla Walla wines.

I always enjoy shopping a bit more after a nice pour of wine.

Ok MFAWG, I don't know shout about the tax breaks... Is the intent of them to keep consumer money in the state by supporting the local brewers/vintnors?

Supposedly, it was to protect local jobs. Except that whether you like it or not WAY more people are employed distributing and selling mass produced beer and wine.

So it was just a series of give aways in the end, paid for by the proles.

Sure, but states and munis do that for many local industries. And the ones you've noted also pump into tourism.

There are stories of people running over pedestrians in farmer's markets every year. On Fark.

Went to a farmer's market with my mom this weekend.  She ran over a curb as we were leaving she exclaimed, "what was that?"... had to hold my tongue about old people and farmer's markets.

Thanks for the laugh subby.

Just get the elderly people to run over a stand filled with grapes.  Then you'll have wine tasting, grape crushing, and a bad driver trifecta.

Should have told her it looked like a small child.

Why would you hold your tongue?? What if she had actually ran over a 'living being', would you hold your tongue then??

I would have told her to gun it and get out of there... but, really, what kind of leap of logic did you make to think that I would have sat back and let her run over a person?

'Living Being' could mean a cat, dog, ferret, etc. The point I was trying to make is that it seems a bit scary that she didn't know that she had driven over a curb! Slippery slope.
