Default Mount gay Extra Old Bonanza

I was walking the aisle of my local Southern California Von's grocery store when I came upon a discount bin with the usual useless crap displayed. A few tidbits of no use and a bunch of bottles of Old Smugglers Scotch (scary) but in the back were bottles of Mount Gay Exta Old marked for $23 each. I quickly bought my goodes to the checkout counter and was told since I had over six bottles I would receive an extra 10% discount, wow eight great bottles at apx $21 each. Might have to upgrade my mixing rum to Mt Gay Extra Old for a couple of months....Man am I Lucky!!!!

mac I found the same thing this past weekend at Von's, only 3 bottles, though. But, they also had 4 bottles of Tezon Anejo Tequila (usually $45-$55) for $7.09 a bottle!
