Nothing much to the story above, I just hope it's for real.

They've been tossing it around for a few years. I hope it's true! I heard part of the hesitation was that Oklahoma doesn't allow the sale of alcoholic beverages above 3.2 in grocery stores and a decent portion of their sales are from wine and good beer. Tulsa has one, because they had a health food store that Whole Foods bought. I have a friend who works at Whole Foods in Oregon, I'll ask her if there's any way she can find out the scoop.

You can go to their website and it'll probably tell you. Or you can contact them directly on their site.

No indication on their website about any plans to come to OKC.

Damn, I was ready to go dance in the streets.



I have heard the same, Kelley. Our stupid liquor laws are holding us back! We can gamble, we can play the lottery, so why can't we sell beer over 3.2? That might make us a slightly swinging state!

I do not understand/What it is I've done wrong/Full of holes/Check for pulse/Blink your eyes/One for yes/Two for no/I have no idea what I am talking about/I am trapped in this body and can't get out-Radiohead

Well when you REALLY break it down, Angel... We can only gamble on tribal land, so really it's just an apology to the Native Americans for all the crap we've done to them historically. And we only have lottery to try and keep our education system from being the absolute worst in the country... But tattooing is legal now! We've got that going for us! Tattooing AND stronger alcohol?! This is a very dangerous recipe. lol
