No liquor in Joco either. Costco told me they can sell since it is a private membership club. Vamos a ver.

Someone on the other board says because of increased domestic violence in the shutdown. I can certainly understand that but, then, I've always considered booze to be over rated and too expensive. I won't get into the detrimental health aspects of drinking because you can google them. The main one (for me) is the impact on the quality of sleep. I've got better things to do with my money.

Most stated reason has been to further discourage tapitios and other tourists, as well as gatherings of locals.

There's always some place willing to sell out the back door.

People who want to drink will find a way to buy it..I lived in a dry county in Alabama where there was plenty of drinking problems..

Some of the corner stores didn't get the memo. I bought some beer at my local this morning.

Isn't beer an exception? I saw a couple of headlines saying the gov proclaimed beer an essential. Didn't read articles tho. . .

In Ontario, the LCBO and the Beer Store are considered essential. The Marijuana stores are not. So by deduction, Pot smokers are peaceful by nature. Very Happy

While people are sitting around the house now would be a good time to take up a hobby. I always enjoyed homebrewing beer. I wasn't very good at it but I had fun. A basic kit is little more than a couple of five gallon plastic buckets, a couple cases of empty beer bottles (caguamas or growlers with screw tops work), a small funnel and a thermometer. Some hops, some yeast and some extract (save all grain brewing for your next batch) and you're good to go. As with any hobby the sky can be the limit. There are a few homebrew suppliers in Guadalajara. drunk

Pot stores in Seattle and San Francisco are open.
