    So they are probably jacking up the price on all their inventory as we speak. Won't be much of a deal.

    Used my Groupon and some cash yesterday to pick up a Fifty Fifty Eclipse (blue wax -- Old Fitz) and a couple bombers from Spiteful. The owner proved to be a really nice guy.

    They had a fair bit of Pipeworks, Revolution and Spiteful as well as the usual suspects. Some gaps on the shelf that the owner attributed to missed deliveries this week due to the flooding. I would guess that 800+ Groupon sales may have also drained his stock a bit. It's a full-fledged liquor store rather than a bottle shop, so it won't dazzle the way walking into Bottles & Cans will. Pricing was in line with other stores not called Capone's....
