Binnys...best place around to buy booze?

Man I love going to Binnys as their whiskey selection is just incredible. Any place better?

Anyone frequent the location downtown (on Grand I think ) that sells by the dram? Nothing like a test ride!

Binny's is awesome....The first time walking in there I had to pinch myself to make sure I wasn't dreaming.

gotta get a Binny's card its like the jewel preferred card but for booze, 15% off every purchase and its free

I spent 30% of my money on fast cars, 30% on women, and 30% on booze. The other 10% I wasted.

Binny's is close to my work and they do have a great selection of booze but if I'm close to home, Woodmans is where it's at.
I know there aren't too many of them around but they have an excellent selection of beer and some realy good hard liquor choices.

You can find some stuff cheaper at Jewel (beer and top shelf vodka) but when your looking for the odd stuff, Binny's has it all.

Good point....

For the stuff that you can get at local Jewel or Dominicks......
they usually beat Binny's on price. But Binny's selection is great
in mixes, beer, wine liquor and top-shelf stuff.


And some things they do not stock, can be ordered.

not everything...i have been looking around for some "thor's hammer" vodka, and they cant find it anywhere...im even wondering if its being made anymore...

they have it on their computer, but cant locate any of it...so they dont stock it any longer im guessing

...plus my gf was with me saying "omg slow down, slow down" and I was thinking "Lose annoying squalk box in passenger seat, afford more mods and have less weight in the car and on the back of the bike"...so i dumped her and I'm single again as usual...HERE KITTY KITTY!!!

Only place I know that has Hendricks Gin and it is cheaper then the crappy mass produced stuff. Their single malt selection is definitely good if you are looking for large distiller type stuff.

Sams club used to be the cheapest if they had it. there cases of 24 bottles was the same as jewels 18 pack. Dominicks is expensive as hell. Its all about stocking up when someone has a killer sell on.

I know they have Wild Turkey Rye. Yum.


And for any bourbon drinkers, WT 101 is a great everyday bourbon.

good vodka. I used to find it at jewel, have not seen it in a long time. A quick google search shows you can still get it online.
