    Wow! A real letdown. Well, you know where your “package” store it, Arlo.

    Package store? What the heck is that? We call them liquor stores up here. The package stores I know of are Fedex and UPS stores where you can get the packing you need and ship.

    This one made no sense whatever

    Apparently a regional idiom for liquor store mostly used in Massachusetts /New England

    Ah, if only we could pack age. And then select the one we want.

    I’m confused…did she come home from the store that fast, or was the package of liquor delivered and Arlo forgot he ordered it?

    And the irony, of course, is that she went to the package store and cam back with…an empty “package” or box instead of the liquor Arlo asked for.

    A case of gin, good thinking Janis, save money on gas by making fewer trips.

    Either they had booze or she made a quick trip?

    Am I the only one who thought in panel 4 Janis brought home a case of booze?

    For gin drinkers, try Haymans Old Tom gin. If you can find it. Our extended family of martini drinkers all love it.

    This is the season for hefeweizen, shandies and saisons. And hard lemonade chilled till slushy, with a couple of pickled jalapeno slices in it.

    They’d be a perfect hoist: they should join the daiquiris—it would keep them occupied.

    When I was a kid a liquor store was called a package store. These days it is a place where you can drop off prepaid packages to be picked up by UPS, FedX, etc.
