  1. I just read about the new liquor store downtown! The whole alcohol-procuring situation was so weird to me when we first moved to Cincinnati, especially that diluted booze you can find in supermarkets and drugstores. My out-of-town friends laughed when I told them about it.

  2. Liquor laws in Ohio are insane and they used to be insaner. You guys probably don’t remember 3.2 beer & when Sunday sales were only in a few places. I remember trying to explain it to a British guy a long time ago. He had to laugh.

  3. Some of that is still the case. I see diluted hard liquor in drugstores and smaller supermarkets and, on Sundays, I think the only place you can buy beer and wine in the basin is the Vine St. Kroger. CVS and Walgreen’s have them out in the open, but they can’t be sold.
