¤ Beaujolais Nouveau 2012: At NH Liquor Stores, Nov. 15, $9.99
— — Nov. 14, 2012.
I had thought we might see a price drop in the awfully compelling 2012 Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais Nouveau from $9.99 to $7.99, now that November had come and gone. This has been the case in the past though that might have been after Christmas. I will keep an eye.
Per the Wolfeboro Liquor Store, the Saturday after Thanksgiving, the ‘Nouveau’ was selling well. They claimed to have sold 3 cases in the two weeks. Not sure if that is good or bad. They had three cases on display when I bought my bottle on ‘Nouveau‘ day. They were still using the same stacked 3 cases display. Could have been three different cases, or just a new case on top, the other two the same. I was at the Rochester Hannaford’s the day before Thanksgiving. They have a large wine aisle — double width. They had the same 3 case display, but only 2 bottles were missing from the top case. Again not sure how many cases they might have sold prior to that. I will stay on top of this and let you know as soon as they go on discount. Promise.

Given that my middle name is ‘Typo‘, I better than most appreciate the joys and pitfalls of typos, but I have to say that the ‘Laconia Daily Sun‘ puts me to shame on a regular basis. I had at one point considered setting up a blog just to keep track of the daily bloopers from the Sun — which is the only newspaper I read in ‘print form’ on a regular basis. But, I realized that I just wouldn’t have the time to do it justice. Often I am convinced that Ed Engler, the Editor, who is noted for his wit, does this on purpose — just to get a rise. You may recall he is the same one that published that I had attended the ‘University of WHALES‘ — shamelessly making fun of my blubber. This amused me. So I wanted to share. The whole Liquor Store story doesn’t make sense either, but that isn’t a case of Ed pulling our collective leg. I read the story on WMUR. A bit of a stretch even for NH.
