Red, White and Food!

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.

  1. Let's do it! We have beer, why not the cheapo wine?! IMHO, grocery stores are not going to compete with specialty wine shops. When I need a cheap wine to cook with, I want to going to the grocery store and do one stop shopping including the cheapo cooking wine. When I want a real wine to sip, I will be going to a real wine shop.

  2. Word, Lannae. Let's welcome TN into the 21st century.
