New Wine Room, Contest Rolls On, and Free BBQ


Cisco the blogging cat here…

Well, Da Gizz had to do it; he just had to add yet another wine room. See block illustration below…

Now, before you go jumping ugly on me and “enlightening” me to the fact that there’s more than beer and wine in the joint (we’ve also got “in season” liquor that is stacked against the walls (in some places floor to ceiling), let me remind you… I know… I live here. The above is just a non-scale rough – something to give you a feel of the store. Now here’s a couple of construction shots of the new Sistine Chapel… The first is looking from the front of store to the back. The new wine room is on the right.

The next is the view looking from the storage area in the back to the front of the shoppe…

And here’s the new “Oenophile Cave”…

I’m telling ya, Bruce is going completely nuts! You watch, you just watch… He’ll have this refuge packed to the scuppers in no time. Sigh… Where is a cat to sleep?

And on a more depressing note… We still don’t have a winner in our weekly wine contest… You wimps!

Finally… You are intending to show up for next Saturday’s free, behind-the-store, PM, pot-luck BBQ aren’t you??? If for no other reason, you’ve got to watch as Da Gizzz turns plain hot dogs into little tubes of ash. Amazing! The late Billy Mays couldn’t have done it better.

See you in the sawdust and the charcoal by the racks,
