Traveling

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

Although I spent my teen years in SF, within walking distance of Haight/Ashbury, during the 60's, I didn't get my first taste of pot until I got to college at UC Davis, in the dorms. Most of the guys in the dorms were from redneck towns like Lodi, but they sure knew how to party. After a couple years of that nonsense I transferred to UC Berkeley where my GPA improved dramatically. But I don't think drive thru liquor stores ever happened here.

Louisiana still has beer barns and drive-through daiquiri stands.

Nope. They actually deliver - like a pizza. There's also a drive-through shop. :thumbup:

Back in the day a lot of convenience stores that sold beer had drive up windows here in TN and also in VA.
They had those in Florida, too, up until early 90's sometime. A lot of the liquor stores still have a drive-up window, or at least a visible place where it used to be. I'm guessing the ones that still have the window use it for the entertainment of the store staff, laughing at the less-than-sober guy waiting at the window.
Just remember, they're not laughing at you, they're laughing at you.

I'm guessing Navarre isn't in Utah.

I went to college in Lakeland Florida, we had a place called the Kau Kau Koner. It was a drive through liquor store, entered on one side, told the guy what you wanted, he loaded your car, paid and drove out of the other side.

How did we survive?
:lol: There used to be one of those in Johnson City TN near the ETSU campus; a literal drive thru store. I think the only things they sold were beer and cigarettes and stuff like chewing gum and chips and things like that. I also survived this era.

I don't object to drive thru booze. Other than the sketchy optics of it, making people walk in only deters those that are too drunk to step over the curb after parking.

I've seen other law firms specializing in motorcycle riders, but this is the first one I've seen where all the attorneys in the firm dress up in their biker costumes.

There's also an LA firm specializing in Uber and Lyft accidents.

I suspect a lot of the attorneys in the White House Counsel's office as well as the Justice Department dress in clown costume.
