It’s Summertime, are You Prepared???

Hey, Cisco the blogging Harwich Spirits Shoppe cat here…

This is just a quick reminder (like you need it) that Summer is upon us. On Cape Cod, that’s serious business. As you’re reading this, I’ll make a prediction just for you… Like everybody else, you’re going to assume that your wine supply is ample (at least until tomorrow…) But one of these hot nights, you’re going to be having a little weekend get together and your best friend will driving in late from Boston. Little will you know that your old college roommate will in fact be bringing in a “newly significant other” along with a few long-lost chums. Bang! It’s 12:30 in the morning and the party is just getting started… There will be lots of people, lots of cold food, lots of music, and the wine closet will be forlornly dry. You’ll look like a bigger wiener than Weiner. Might as well raid the kids’ juice boxes, cook some liver, and watch an infomercial… How sad… We cats here at HSS hear this pathetic story all the time… Lesson to be learned? If you want to be cool like Nat King Cole below, you need to set aside a few cases of vino in a nice cool, dark place and expect the unexpected.

We’re tellin’ ya’… Stop by and stock up… You’ve been warned…

By the racks…
