Re: Official WTSO thread

this has been offered several times before. It's not bad for a $30 bottle of GC rose bubbles. Just ordered more myself. Ok thanks . The $2 credit per bottle helps too. And the fact that you used the phrase “just ordered more” sounds good to me. Where would you put this on the fruity vs dry scale ? ...

Re: More reasons to hate FedEx

I never knew about Walgreens, but that's not owned by FedEx obviously, so I wouldn't expect them to hold wine. In some states they're allowed to sell it - maybe that's why some will hold it, but I can't imagine they'd be happy to store large packages for people. My local Walgreen's is happy to rece...
