Deals at Total Wine & More

If you live in one of the nine states where Total Wine & More does business, you would do well to get on the mailing list.  You will receive periodic coupons, like this month’s, for $2 of each four or six-pack of beer, up to four.  Hey, eight bucks is eight bucks.  As you can see from the photo, they have a great selection of beer (and the photo shows just a fraction of the inventory).

If you are also a wine fan, you should check out the wine tastings at Total Wine & More.  The tastings are held every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from noon to five, give or take an hour depending on the day.  Since by law they cannot give away alcoholic beverages, the price of admission is one thin dime.  This is not a lecture-type tasting where you need to follow along in a certain order.  Just show up anytime during the tasting hours, toss your dime in the bucket, and enjoy.  Ten cents allows you to taste eight or nine good wines, or as many as a dozen if there is a guest winery displaying its wares.  Of course the store wants you to find and buy a bottle you like, so they are generous with the higher-end wines.

Finally, I don’t know if it is true of all the stores, but my local Total Wine & More also has a very nicely stocked walk-in cigar humidor.
