Yet Another Cork Count Contest Update…

I’m telling you Ponchita, this Cork Counting Contest is exploding in our faces… How tough can it be to guess the number of corks in the jug below? (Keep in mind that the vessel is almost full now.)

And look at this! Here’s the latest updated list of prizes:

Whew! That’s over $950 and climbing. This contest is taking a life of its own, and all the local merchants are jumping in… You the reader might want to jump in as well… All you need to do is guess the number of corks in da bottle and send a comment with your prognostication to this blog. But don’t dally… The contest ends Sunday, Valentine’s Day! (Rumor has it that the Harwich Spirits Shoppe party and cork counting begins on Feb 14, 3pm… There will be wine tasting, food, and who knows what…)

See you by the wine racks and that all important collection of corks!

Two cats blogging,

P.S. On a separate and more serious note, recently, the Harwich Board of Health conducted one of its ongoing tests to see what stores are providing accessibility of tobacco to minors… Once again, Harwich Spirits Shoppe passed with flying colors! Unfortunately, 11 of the other 22 businesses tested failed.
