Portland Differences #2 – Booze in Gas Stations

To continue on my last Portland Differences post about gas stations, there is another thing different about gas stations. Booze. Well, not booze, but wine and beer. And it ain’t 3.2%.

Every gas station, 7-Eleven, or whatever store, they have tons of beer and wine for sale, pretty much like a liquor store.

In Minnesota, you can buy booze in the gas station, but it is weak 3.2% beer, which if you don’t realize it, if you start drinking it, you don’t feel it. Like water.

So, no late night jaunts to the liquor store in Oregon, just run and get gas, let the guy fill it up for you while you go get a bottle of wine.

    wine?
    the only kind of wine a person should ever drink is boone’s farm.
    and that’s not even wine.
    that’s just extremely immature adults’ kool-aid.

    you should stick to drinking beer with the big dogs.
    or you could sit on the porch in your rockin’ chair and sip on wine. =P
