Micky's Liquor Should Be Ashamed Of Itself...
Photos By John Hoff
So a few days ago, I was at NoMi party at 14th and Emerson Ave. N., to raise money for impoverished people in India, when I had to make a trip on foot to Micky's Liquor to buy some cups for the wine all the partygoers were drinking, while Skyping to India and talking about various socially-responsible issues...
I asked Micky's if they sold plastic cups, and I was asked, "How many?"
That's when I found out they will sell single cups for five cents apiece. How convenient for the chronic inebriate market to have access to five cent liquor cups.
In the top picture, Jules Inda (the lovely spouse of Pat Carney, North Minneapolis marketing guru) poses like Vanna White with the cups I obtained that night. Really, the best thing I did all night at that party, was to buy out Micky's stock of plastic cups for the evening. Anyway...I'm going to say what needs to be said, because if I'll go after Merwin's and their "butt fence" I'm sure not going to hold back from critiquing Micky's Liquor about their "Five Cent Chronic Inebriate Cups."
Plus they have a pay phone in their parking lot, which consists almost entirely of concrete. And let's not forget the old ass sign form the 1970's. Do I have to be the one to say publicly what everybody else is thinking? Micky's should be ashamed of itself, squeezing out nickels from chronic inebriates and leaving our neighborhood to pay the price.
SHAME SHAME SHAME.
