minor rant

vandan | Jun 9, 2009 07:39 PM

so i was at a wine tasting at the signature bcls, cambie on sunday and seeing as i never shop there, other end of town for me, i looked forward to the riesling (which was nice) and picking up some cold beers to go, as only a very few stores sell cold ones, only the signature ones i was once told, so when i was time to go i searched and searched for where the coolers could be to no avail, asked a staff member only to find out to my amazement that they don't have one, bear in mind that store is pretty much their flagship store and you can only buy warm beer, i was even willing to pay the ridiculous "service charge" of 10 cents per unit, i know our liquor laws are a joke (no byob in restos etc) but when being able to buy cold beer is considered a rare luxury its just plain sad
