A Tale of Two NYC Liquor Stores…

Shame Shame Shame Elmans Wines & Liquors on 279 3rd Ave, New York, NY 10010…  It drives me nuts when I ask for the good stuff and they pull out a Thomas Handy, a George T. Stagg and an ORVW from behind the counter and ask for $400, $750 and $500 CASH.  Come on guys… you can’t ask for cash and significantly above secondary market rates.  Shame on you!

On a completely different note, House of Wine & Liquor on 222 E 34th St, New York, NY 10016 had lovely people and very reasonable prices.  They may not be experts on Bourbon, but they weren’t out to gouge anyone either.  I ended up buying a Michter’s 10yr Rye with the wax top for $159.99, and they had a bunch of Michter’s 10yr Bourbon for $109.99 for sale, which is a very fair price, and one of the lowest prices I’ve seen in New York State.  Thank you guys for being fair!
