"East county isn't the best place to go for high-end wines, said managers at the stores at 11407 Georgia Ave. in Wheaton and 11239 New Hampshire Ave. in White Oak. Those areas tend to sell more liquor than wine, they said.If we're going to have a county-funded monopoly on liquor stores, at least spread the wealth evenly! Do oenophiles not live in East County, or are they just sick of driving to Potomac for their $1,300 Chateau Margaux Margaux? Or is East County really just a place where corner boys drink 40's and cat-call passersby, where rednecks in Burtonsville tear open six-packs of Bud on the hoods of pick-up trucks, and where high schoolers far cooler than I was get trashed on Smirnoff liberated from their parents' liquor cabinet in the basement of some oversized Hampshire Greens McMansion?
The Potomac store, at 10132 River Road, receives most of the 'really, really hot stuff,' Wurdeman said."
Spare me, Montgomery County liquor monopoly. We are far more refined than that. So when are your wine futures gonna benefit us Up The Pike?
