    Well fortunate for me I was at work when this fiasco occurred so for the 12 people that were there waiting, 2 of my friends included, that's a pretty big let down.

    logan liquors in (shockingly enough) logan square has coffee in the cooler. 22.99. not cheap, but not outrageous

    So it kinda sounds like BCBCS is tuning into a mini-BCBS...insane hunt for the first batch of deliveries and then popping up (relatively) easily on the second round of much wider distribution. Not that I expect to see this on the shelves of Jewel/Dominicks (or any shelf for that matter), but the initial craziness may have been a bit unnecessary.

    imo too early to call it there. let's see what it's like in two weeks. i'm willing to bet that demand is still greatly outpacing supply, unlike regular bcbs. only reason i went and bought more regular today was i needed it for a trade.

    Two individual cherries soaked in normal BCBS. It's like atomic cherries with beer.

    Obviously. You would be foolish to actually drink and enjoy the bottles that you acquire. I mean, who does that?

    WTF?
    I was in Foremost yesterday. Guy said the price was $25. Since I've already got a few bottles and the AH Binny's got theirs in yesterday I decided to pass. Apparently the price went up as the night progressed.
    Would also note this place got Cherry in as well, where as both the Arlington Hts Binny's and Dobby's have been shut out.

    I just picked up one of each from Evanston First. Not cheap, but within reason. Two bottles of cherry and a case of coffee were left after my purchases.

    WTF is right!! I asked him how much and he said 26.99. He also mentioned that people were calling and asking for it all day so he probably figured that for every call he received asking for BCBCS he could jack the price up more and more :mad:

    Thanks for the tip. Picked up a bottle. There was still a few in the cooler, definetly the most random spot Ive procured a killer beer.

    I know alot of you hate it, but they had Frangelic Mt Brown in the cooler as well for 14.99. I grabbed one. Enjoy that one for some reason.

  30. Just a case? My local shop is sporting a 15 foot high display of cases in the shape of a cherry.

  31. I just missed on the last Cherry, and all because I rushed out of the house too quick! I'm almost there, and I realize I forgot my wallet, so I have to turn around. Cost me 10 minutes, and as I walk in the last one is being bought :( At least I got a Coffee and Night Stalker.
