Personal Absolute Favourites and Popular Sell Outs

Title: Personal Absolute Favourites and Popular Sell OutsLocation: 43 Dalry RoadDescription: “Ok- it’s my turn, and I’m coming clean. I possess an over-confidence when it comes to finding you that wine/beer that will insert a twinkly little star to your week, or at the very least a little perky vino. I shouldn’t admit this, as am sure this record will now soon crumble under the good deed of someone desiring to reinstall my shame on the matter, however thus far (10 years on and off) the hit ratio is roughly in the area of 90% first time, 100% on the second, on getting you what you truly desire.

The Yes or No Vote

Title: The Yes or No VoteLocation: 43 Dalry RoadDescription: I give in, what is it you really want? Tell me! Have you been coming in day after day, pondering a pouty Puilly-Fume? A chalky Chardonnay? Let us all wander past the mysteries on our shelves, then barter (within reason) a nice selection of six, upon which all can agree. Dust off your debate team ribbon and see what you can convince the others of, and more importantly myself (blimey, 80 quid?!) to pop the cork, ease the lid, and twist the cap on. The store is your Oyster… Bay. Start Time: 20:00Date:...
