Lenell's is pretty novel and can have some cool stuff.
The allocated stuff all goes to a lottery or is announced a certain day and people campout all day for it. Lenells and Mtn Brook ABC will have "good stuff" but you aren't going to stroll in and find Weller 12 or something.
Check out Hilltop Liquors in Vestavia. It's a private liquor store so you'll pay a premium, but it recently opened and has been getting some harder to find bourbons fairly regularly.
I haven’t checked it out but I know from friends it’s one of those spots where it helps to build rapport with the owner. If you just walk in and ask for Blanton’s he will likely tell you no when in reality it’s hidden behind the counter for regulars.
Is the owner named Dan?
Not sure on that
They had things like Willet Family Reserve, Elijah Craig Toasted, Buffalo Trace, Four Roses OESK, and other other allocated items out on the shelf when I went in ~10 days ago. The guy was pretty friendly but I don't doubt they have stuff behind the counter. Regardless, RJF-GUMP may be able to find something sitting out he can't normally get in the 'Sip.
How much was the four roses OESK?
I had lunch at Greenhouse for the first time and it was really good
I'm not sure about that one because they had sold it minutes before I got there. They advertised it on their instagram story, so I knew to ask. BT was going for $40 I believe (or maybe that was Weller SR?), ECTB for around $100 and I didn't bother looking at the Willet price. They had a good selection for uncommon items (at least in AL) but they are definitely charging a premium.
Might have to go in there and go ham
Just went in there. They have Barrel Rye and Dovetail for $120 and $130. Several bottles of Kentucky Owl and some Peerless. Some nice Foursquare rum bottles at high prices. The Buffalo Trace was $44 I think.
Dovetail for $130 is offensive. So is BT at $44.
Welcome to Alabama and state owned liquor sales.
Looks like I gave up one of my secret spots
I also want to load up on good beer to bring back home. What's your go to beer store?
Hop City or any of the Piggly Wigglys
Thanks for all the recommendations fellas.
And trim tab
Piggly Wigglies IMO
The Pig certainly fucks with beer.
I’ll add Solid Sounds from Yellowhammer Brewing is one of the better new beers I have had recently. It’s a New England style IPA and if you are into that I’d pick it up if you come across it
I’ll add Ghost Train’s Little Victories if you like citrusy Pale Ales. The Blackfish you can pick up a six at that new Hilltop package next to Publix. Solid spot.
Trim Tab has a hoppy pilsner release tomorrow that sounds fantastic.
10 year suspended sentence w/2 years of probation.
Whammy Mark Smith was the lead lobbyist on this
I know! Very proud of him, was in Bham 18 months ago when he had just transitioned in to the role. The Smiths know how to get things done
Do you just pack up your stuff and move somewhere else after this or do you just try to put it all behind you and move forward? Obviously people aren't going to be okay letting him in their houses for work anytime soon so got to change jobs I'd imagine. Maybe join Church of the Highlands and go all in the other direction?
Got my 1st covid vaccine shot today at the new drive-through place next to the airport. Very simple to do.
Click the green button
Have family coming into town tomorrow that are very covid-conscious but still want to grab dinner. Normally I'd just go to outdoor dining but it's going to be a little cold. Any suggestions for places that have pretty good spacing indoors?
FWIW a lot of places have heaters for their outside seating now, too. Not sure what they'd like to eat.
Ivey announced this morning starting Monday everyone over the age of 16 is eligible for vaccine
I don’t degrade women like Misogynist Baby
This new sandwich place in Avondale is extremely good
Bullshit. You just don’t want to get sued for trademark infringement
As Charlie Conway said above, getting it at the airport couldn’t be easier. Sign up via that link. They have appointments open as soon as Monday morning. Whole process takes about 30min and you don’t have to get out of your car. They even use the kind bud Pfizer and not that schwag Moderna.
Drive by every day, had no idea that was there. Will def check out.
Got the 12 inch Turkey melt today. Incredible and tons to eat.
Yea you did
So you gave it to him 4 times?
Swung by this morning and picked up a couple of 4 packs. It’s fire.
RJF-GUMP how was Dyron’s?
Yeah it’s very good
Delicious. Had West Indies salad which was really good. then snapper over grits with crawfish tails. Then strawberry cobbler. I will say that living on the coast, it wasn’t one of the freshest pieces of snapper I’ve ever had, and I thought it could’ve been seasoned and/or sauced in a more exciting fashion. The fish itself was a bit bland more my taste. Strawberry cobbler was phenomenal. Overall I really enjoyed the meal.
