Recommended: CC's Liquor Store
They have all the staples I buy, like pretty good selections of bourbon and rye, plus a decent beer selection and some fancier stuff like bitters and vermouth if that's what you're looking for. A big bottle of Evan Williams whiskey is $15.99, for example. I'm not really a wine guy, but they do have some as well. I'd bet D'Vines would be the wine spot, however. They also have the occasional interesting thing, like Quetzalteca brand aguardiente, a Guatemalan cane sugar alcohol similar to cachaça
The one thing they don't have a lot of is mixers, so I'd try Giant for that.
Anybody else with an opinion on the local booze establishments?
