On Thursday we had to make a run into New Jersey for wine and to have our dog Jessie hand stripped. Liquor stores in Pennsylvania are all government owned, run and stocked with expensive, though no class, bottles of wine from Barton & Guestier, Louis Jadot and Gallo. After 6 months of either abstaining or making ourselves ill, we coordinated a liquor run with Jessie’s salon appointment in Union, New Jersey, about 2 hours from Honesdale.
Diamond in the Ruff of Westfield, New Jersey did a beautiful job of hand stripping Jessie and Jessie had a wonderful time with them. I hope they weren’t too exhausted 😀
We bought a shameful amount of wine and ordered multiple cases for pickup later this week. Total Wines, a chain, had a decent selection of wines and liquors from France, Spain, Italy and California. They didn’t have Bailly Cremant nor Monkey 47, but we were not too disappointed.
Union has a marvelous Asian Food Store. It’s huge! They have everything; live fish in tanks, Asian vegetables and fruits, every condiment you can imagine and a large refrigerated unit packed with a variety of fresh Chinese and Japanese noodles. Talk about choice! It was impossible to choose, so I just took some of everything 🙂 I’ll have to go back soon.
