It's been around for many many years......I used to take it camping, and my now 30 something little boy would blow up the empty bag inside the box for a pillow, or a float to play in the lake. I'm cracking up with the memory. Now days, with a glass of wine so expensive on cruise ships, we enjoy our boxed wine in our room and figured out a box of $10.00 wine is actually worth $200.00. Told ya I was frugal!!

BTW, boxed wine is sold here in grocery stores, not at TJ's.
HMMMMMMMMMMM Box wine came out right around the same time glass bottles were banned from concerts.

New Orleans is a drinking town. Liquor is even available in convenience stores and open all day, all night, Sundays.

You're right. I was thinking of Orange County, Florida. Liquor from the convenience store at 7AM, later on Sunday.

I was just so amazed to find that they were available all night and day here.

In Maine, hard liquor is often available in the regular grocery store. I think that the law says as long as there isn't another liquor store within the shopping center of nearby that the grocery store can carry it. They can all carry wine and beer though.

The TJs in New York do not have liquor or wine except the one in New York City has a TJs liquor store a few doors down from the TJs but they can't tell the customers in TJs about it or send them over there. So ridiculous. We are spoiled here in So Cal.

In Washington the state runs the liquor stores; talk about prissy, old-fashioned rules... In general, they open around 11AM and close at 8pm weeknights and sometimes 9pm on weekends. Within the last year or so they have finally decided to have a select few open on Sundays. The majority of the stores are small with a limited selection. They run "specials" where things are on average $1.00 off their regular retail price. The lines are notoriously horrible around the holidays. They will special order stuff though, if you ask. It just seems so archaic to me.
