It offers a Wine Wednesday special, with 10 percent off any of their diverse selection of often hard-to-find wines, and 15 percent off a mixed or unmixed case (12 bottles). You also get 10 percent off beers — imports or domestics — on Thirsty Thursday and 10 percent off hard liquor on Boozeday.

Sunday, Monday, Boozeday
Never again will I get that aw-crap-it’s-Sunday feeling again (on the booze front at least). The NY State Liquor Authority has decided that liquor stores can now be open seven days a week. These are some exciting times, no?
