I was recently in Houston, Texas to do one of my murder mystery parties. I’ve recently had a resurgence of interest in my business from that state. If you are wondering why people there have cash on hand to spend on murderous fun, perhaps this graph will provide a clue:
Anyway, I had some time to kill (har!) and was driving out toward Tennis Express, a very large tennis only clothing and equipment store that I have visited in the past. As I rode down the road, I checked out the bazillion business that lined Westheimer Rd. A small grocery store caught my eye when I realized that is was not a small grocery store, but a giant liquor store!
It was a good thing I had plenty of time, because I sure spent a lot of time in there… and a lot of money, too. I got some gins that I can’t get here in Ohio, some other boozes, and a bunch of cool mixers and finishers. I’ll detail each item I purchased with its own post, hopefully coming up with a few recipes along the way. Watch this space for Adventures in a Giant Box of Booze I’ve Never Seen Before! (in Disney 3D!)
UPDATE: Robert tells me in the comments that this wasn’t even the
big Spec’s in town! While my eyes were still watering from that little piece of news, I went to FARK.com this morning, and am presented with this story!
