And pull up your sign

September 25th, 2007 · 95 comments

Writes Mel in Beaufort, South Carolina: “Our city has decided to go with those shorter, more pleasing-to-the-eye signs for businesses. All new businesses have had to have them for a few years now, but existing businesses are just starting to have to replace their signs. I guess the local liquor store wasn’t too pleased.”

OUR RIDICULOUS CITY COUNCIL ORDERED THIS SIGN MUST BE DESTROYED BY SEPT 26

    Forget the sign! What are all those little orbs of light hovering around it? This surely must be the most haunted liquor store in America.

    I’m thinking anyone tearing down this sign is gonna be majorly haunted.

    This is great… as if the big ugly marquee style sign doesn’t speak for itself, the owners of this package store decided to post a personal message that drives that point home. It screams we’re ugly on the inside too.

    I’m pro free speech, and support small businesses all the way but I’m against eyesores. Take down the sign you booze schlepping hicks.

    and on the 25th, the liquor store was closed down……
    right after they bought their new sign.
    and the city council rejoiced..
    but there was no liquor…… (unless it’s like my town, in which case there is a liquor store on every corner!).

    There are dry counties all over the Southeast. I think the most ironic one is Moore County, TN, home of Lynchburg and the Jack Daniels distillery. That’s right – they can make it, they just can’t sell it (though I’ve heard they have an exception for the gift shop).

    We have dry wards in Chicago. After encountering barf outside the dive near my house every Monday morning, that doesn’t sound like such a bad idea.

    In Michigan we called them “party stores”, and it pleased me to imagine that the liquor was secondary to the hats and noisemakers.

    My wife and I honeymooned in the Poconos (PA) and I searched for beer. After awhile found it was sold in “taverns” but not in liquor stores.
    I finally sniffed out a six-pack.
    In NYC, alias the Big Apple, beer is sold in Deli’s but not liquor stores. takes some getting used to, but a beer does work well with a pastrami sandwich…kinda makes sense!

    In some towns in Wisconsin, you can’t buy booze after 11:00PM or on Sundays, unless it’s in a bar. Which means if you aren’t in church, you’re probably in a bar getting philosophical with a Miller Lite (or Busch Light – ilch!)

    Today’s the day! (26th)

    Is there going to be live coverage (via streaming web video) of the destruction? I hope so.

    An alternate plan would be to post increasingly odd messsages on it starting today. Something like, “Pardon our Dust, but this sign is under a process of imminent destruction- Thank You, Terry” When the council stops by to complain, the owner would just say, “We are doing everything we can; can’t you read the sign?”

    I’ve purchased liquor from that store. The chick behind the counter, though covered in tattoos, was extremely helpful and nice.

    The sign wasn’t that big, if I remember correctly and it’s not neon yellow or orange like so many of the beach route businesses. Team less government, more liquor I think.

    Canthz B: In PA, we have package stores or beer stores, which sell beer, hard cider and soda by the case. If you want beer in anything less than 24 units, it has to be bought at bar, and usually they are limited to 2 six-packs per purchase. If you go to a liquor store, you can buy wine and hard liquor and some mixers, but no soda. . . After 13 years of living here, I still ask: WTF?

    I live in a small town– smaller than Beaufort– and apparently we share the same city council.

    Like Beaufort, our town has historical significance. The city council decided to launch a “beautification” of our town, which means anything that THEY consider an eyesore must go, including kitschy and silly stuff that lends the town any kind of individuality. I think this sign should stay just the way it is. What the hell difference does it make if a liquor store has a crappy sign? God forbid anyones’ aesthetic sensibilities should be offended.

    Here is south Louisiana, you can buy from 10am-2am mon-sat and from 11am-12am on sun. Unless of course you’re outside of the city limits and then you can do whatever the hell you want. There are a few dry parishes (counties) but they’re mostly in north Louisiana, which is like a completely different state.

    In MA, they call them package stores as well. Don’t know why — I always assumed it was after the wino with a bottle hidden in a tightly-wrapped paper bag thing.

    Just a few years ago, they legalized Sunday booze sales, as well as tattoos. They decided, in the 21st century, that anal sex should still be illegal.

    I always wondered why they were call package stores – now I know. Thanks, Wiki!

    [quote]Liquor store
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    A liquor store in Decatur, Georgia.A liquor store is the American and Canadian name for a type of convenience store which specializes in the sale of alcoholic beverages in the countries where its consumption is strongly regulated. In some parts of the US a liquor store is called a package store or “packie” for short. In alcoholic beverage control (ABC) states, package stores often sell only distilled spirits or sometimes sell distilled spirits and wine but not beer. ABC-run package stores may be called ABC stores. The term “package” derives from the fact that following the repeal of Prohibition in 1933, a political compromise was reached with leaders of the temperance movement whereby containers of alcoholic beverages could not legally be carried in public uncovered from view. Thus, stores that sold alcohol for consumption elsewhere wrapped or “packaged” them for their customers’ convenience.

    And Vancouver’s cool cuz you can get off-sales from bars until midnight (i think)- going up to the side door and buying cases of beer was kinda thrilling, somehow.

    Actually, Canthz, you did insult him/her – and quite unnecessarily. I already asked (post #63) the question about the “IMplosion?” comment and was answered very lucidly in post #66. It was a Simpsons reference and not an indication of ignorance for public display as you surmised. However, when turrboenvy pointed out that you missed their answer (which was posted nearly an hour before you slapped them for their “ignorance”) and suggested that perhaps you should read all the comments before attacking someone, you missed THAT explanation as well, seemingly. And I really have no idea what your “knowing the language before embarrassing someone” comment means? If you go back and read through turrboenvy’s posts I am sure you will find they make excellent use of the language.

    Anyhow, thanks for the explanation, turrboenvy. I completely missed that reference (to my chagrin as I remember that episode well). Sorry for being the catalyst for the dirty business that followed.

    Hey…..didn’t that episode air immediately following “Nova”? :)

    Each fake pic shown on atomsmasher.org aligns the bottom of a row of letters vertically. Our pic does not. Also, the letters in our pic have a better blend of dark pxels when examined close-up.

    If the original message had been more specific, or the second included an apology for the first, I would not have taken offense.
    I read it as questioning my use of the word “implosion” as did W-P. a clarification more clear than a reference to a cartoon would have been better from my point of view.

    HTML treats many spaces as one space, so you need to use &nbsp; in place of spaces. Then, because the site doesn’t use a fixed-width font, you need to use <span style=”font-family : Courier New”>TT etc…</span>. Keep in mind, the site is going to auto-format the post, you don’t want to use <br> tags at the end of each line like you would in normal HTML.

    Beautiful Beaufort By The Bay is trying like hell to purty itself up and be quaint like Charleston and ritzy like Hilton Head, where the nouveau-riche ubertourists demand that even the grocery stores look all pleasant and aesthetically banal.

    I live here in Beaufort, and yes, this sign is real. County council and all the other richie riches of the area (starry-eyed locals included with tourons) are trying to “beautify” this lovely little town of ours by telling businesses (that have been here longer than most the residences who claim their new southern rental homes on Fripp and Dataw “home” ) that their appearances must be not only pleasing to the eye, but also up-to-par with the newer businesses (i.e. Talbots,etc.). I understand the need for conformity (since we, as a whole, are sooooo non-conformist), but I understand where the older businesses come off as being reluctant. But, enough of my rant. The sign is real and now it’s gone, since September 26th has come and past.

    Thanks for the update, Liz, though it makes me sad. One person’s eyesore is another’s …. well, still an eyesore, but come on! Live and let live.
