A friend snapped this for me at P.J. Wine and Liquors thinking I would be amused. And I was.
I posted to Instagram (@alicesari) and to Facebook, it ended up on Twitter (@alicefeiring) and created a bit of a stir. Some people were upset at the warning, a reaction that surprised me. Some thought it was not going to sell wines just increase the fear. I beg to differ.
I've been an encourager of signs and flags like this whether in a shop low on help or restos without a good sommelier. In a shop like P.J.'s with an excellent bunch of wines but a liquor atmosphere, in a neighborhood far from hipsterville, it's a warning that should be heeded. Anyway, if you love stinky cheese and Lapsang, it's a good tip. After all, who of us doesn't like the stinky?
I emailed them to find out what was the note's inspiration, I'm waiting on the response.
