Default Too Funny!

I'm checking into restaurants in Jonesboro for our trip. It's a "dry
county" which means unless it's a special club you can't even buy a drink or
wine with dinner. Well, there's the 501 Club & Restaurant downtown. Used
to be a members only club but they don't mention that online anymore. So I
called to inquire as whether visitors from out of town might be able to go
in and have dinner and drinks.

I dialed the wrong number. I didn't understand what the man who answered
the phone said so I asked, "Is this the 501 Club?" He replied, "Well, no.
But there's a buncha drunks who work here!" I cracked up. What a great
comeback!

Jill <--dialing the correct number now

Yep! We can get a 1 year membership for $5 - doesn't matter how many is in
the party. Then just sign the other folks in as guests. So yep, methinks
we'll get a membership so we can have some hootch before and during dinner.
The place is rated the best restaurant in town, as well you can imagine. <G>

For when we're in our hotel room, we're having to "import" the stuff (so to
speak) unless we want to drive 20 miles to the county line. There's nothing
out there but once you cross the line there's a big ol' liquor & wine shop!

That's similar to Ocean City, New Jersey. Dry. But cross the short bridge
outta town and there's a "Super Liquor". They should post a sign for folks
headed into OC, "Last Chance Alcohol" or something.

Not sure what you mean by that, Michael, but I'll take it as a compliment
We're going out for our 'Valentine's Dinner' on Thursday night and I figure
this would be a good place to go. Yes, we can get a 1-year membership for
$5. It's the only place in that town I can find that has special
dispensation to serve alcohol. I'm trying to get my hands on a menu but I
can't find one online and I don't have a fax machine.

Just out of curiosity...what's the difference here between importing and
smuggling?

Importing is the transfer of goods legally, means making a declaration
and paying the tarrifs.

Smuggling is the illegal transfer of goods, like how you sneaked that
bottle of booze across the border by secreting it in your crotch.

I found a link to jpegs of this, but I decided against posting them...
;-) Sheldon can do his _own_ googling for it. <lol>

Sounds pretty exclusive. I'd probably fit right in.

Reminds me of the old joke:

Q: How many references do I need to get into this club?
A: 10 (or 2 5's).

Of course he's going to spring for it! He's springs for everything (yay!)

That's a very helpful and thoughtful gift! I'm not diabetic but a gift of
chocolate wouldn't impress me very much. While I was out running errands
earlier I had to laugh at all the men crammed in the card aisle scrambling
for valentines. I went to peruse the paperbacks which happen to be on the
same aisle as the candy and ran across two men clutching teddy bears,
discussing various candies with all the seriousness of a couple of guys
planning to buy a truck. I couldn't help but laugh out loud.

Well, that was really thoughtful of him, though. My hubby was going to get
me a present on his way home from work, but I told him I was getting a
migraine and he brought me home aspirin instead - rushing in order to get it
home to me quickly. That's present enough, in my book. :~)

Hubby was just trying to counteract having to hear that "I got a
headache tonight" excuse. hehe I think he still owes you... of course
*what* depends on how often you use that excuse... bad girls end up
with a pocketful of coal... wait, I think bad girls end up with
jewelry. <G>

I am posting from Google right now, so excuse this if it looks funny.
I can't access rfc via Agent at the moment, for some reason...

Get some NZ Sauvignon Blanc as one of your imports.

Are you getting champagne?
