Give it up for Red, White and Food Blog Day!
March 2 is the day for we, the TN bloggers, to make our opinions known that retail food stores should be able to sell wine to their customers.
This means changing a long-standing law that restricts wine sales to liquor stores. The Tennessee Grocers & Convenience Store Association is advocating this change. The association represents large corporate stores and small independent grocers across the state.
On Friday I hightailed it after work to pick up some weekend fun materials - food and alcohol. However, I made two trips - one to the liquor store for a mega-bottle of chardonnay and a magnum-bottle of Merlot, and another to Kroger. Unnecessary. It wastes time and gas and it's just a big pain in the ass.
Give us the freedom to choose - grocery story or speciality wine shop.
That's what I call a free (Kroger) Marketplace.
