Apologies to LL Cool J. Thanks to a reader for passing on:

“just in time for the holidays, the Columbia Heights Giant is running a Manager’s Special: “loose beers in plastic bags”. Santa is definitely bringing my husband a bag of Olde English.”

    How does Olde English compare to Mickey’s? All I can recall about the latter from my college days are the terrible hangovers.

      If you think a Mickeys hangover is bad, steer clear of OE800. Thoughj

        If you think a Mickeys hangover is bad, steer clear of OE800. Though it mixes quite nicely with orange juice in a brass monkey. Not as good as Hurricane, the undisputed best malt liquor, but much better than most.

    poor form, those OE800’s need to come in small brown paper bags.

    Remember, federal laws and “relgualtions” prohibit the return of alcoholic beverages.

      What an ‘inconivence’!

      …which is wrong anyway. You can return booze to VA ABC stores, no questions asked. I learned this when we had our wedding in VA. We overbought and just returned everything we didn’t use. So this sign is a complete fail.

      • Pixiesticks

        Sign is correct. DC law prohibits returning alcoholic beverages. VA allows it, but the sign is at the Columbia Heights Giant, in DC

    Olde English And Bud Light Margaritas. There’s a combo for you.

    • JMF

      They are Bud Light Straw-ber-itas to be exact! An even more delicious combo.

  • meh

    Looks like somebody ran out of fucks to give.

    Loose Beers in Plastic Bags is the name of my Jimmy Buffet cover band.
