Oh the hillbillies hate him.
The latest outrage is the cancellation of Centre counties Grange Fair
Which is basically a week long campground with funnel cakes and shoe-flie pie.
The tents are literally within arms reach of each other but people go back every year and pass their campsites on like family heirlooms or Penn State Football season ticket reservations

Can concur, live around Hillbillies.

The worst are the reps of the hillfolk, making a point to do the EXACT OPPOSITE of what any of those with half a brain say to do- wear mask, social distance, etc- because it's what Wolf wants. See pics from the most recent protest...

They concocted a huge scheme to move their own counties to "yellow," not realizing that outside of daycare services and some more retail opening, there wasn't much different. Now they're trying to undo the state of emergency declaration, not realizing it would cos them federal funds/stockpile access.

They're so mad they can't get haircuts or watch dirt track racing... it's infuriating. Wolf and Sec. Levine have the patience of saints- yeah they're not perfect (data issues, some transparency problems) but you can tell they don't want people to die unnecessarily... can't say the same for most of the GOP.

I was thinking "Deep-fried vodak", but I wasn't too far off.

I don't know who the fark this is for. Who is going to buy a drink at full bar price then go home to drink it. I have liquor at home for a fraction of the price. And it's only been a week or two that I can buy that curbside style. Wolf is trying but he farked the liquor game up for a while there. Jersey and Ohio were raking in the cash when the state stores were closed.

Generally stupid but there's a bar/restaurant that makes a good bloody mary with their own pickle vodka and I don't keep any of  those things at my house. I mean, I'm not going to buy one to go but I could see that being the one rare case I'd want a cocktail to go.

It's just a bit too far to justify takeout, their best stuff wouldn't travel all that well.

I'm trying to think, but the best I could come up with is they give you a drink while they cook your order. Of course, then you are drinking in public. That may fly in New Orleans, but not here. Just.... pointless.

Pretty much. But you're used to our stupid state store system too, so it may be easier for some people and allow some places to make some more money so pretty much "eh".

This is very exciting news.  Definitely calls for a pitcher of Margaritas.

I don't see this having much of an affect in helping restaurants staying afloat, but I admit I did get takeout recently and tossed in a double Old Fashioned to the order.  I didn't have any bourbon left at home, it sounded good at the time, and figured they need the business.

It sure beats playing games with the state store online system and hoping you win the lottery and are able to buy a bottle of whatever you want. (not that you're going to get what you want since they pared down the offerings to a fraction of what they were)

Besides, it's like hitting the lottery if you're actually able to shop on finewineandgoodspirits.com without seeing the "sorry, you ain't buying nothin' " banner on that website.

Alcohol has much higher profit margins than food

It does, but I just don't see many partaking in it. I imagine most will still just order food for takeout if they have some sort of alcohol at home to drink. But I'm glad that have some sort of additional revenue coming in.
