Would anyone be interested in going to what Alpha Hound Jim has called The Most Amazing Food Store in the World (Lodi, NJ)? This place sounds like a great pre-Christmas shopping extravaganza. If you haven't read this piece, here are a few of the more tantalizing passages.
"Tonight I found the most amazing supermarket in the whole world. It's miraculousness is not easily described, but I'll give it a whirl..... This place is packed with more wonders, more surprises, more breadth and amazement and less predictability (you will not recognize more than 5-10% of the brands) per square foot than you've ever in your wildest dreams imagined finding in one place anywhere. If you go, your jaw will drop and you will push your overflowing cart down aisle after aisle, giggling maniacally and crying out discovery after wonderful discovery. It's almost too much to bear."
I'm all for maniacle giggling. Anyone else? I'm thinking Oct. 5 or 12 (both Saturdays) The store hours are 8-10 on Saturday.
