If you really want an experience, go to the Spec's Warehouse in Houston.  I do believe they have every type of booze that is legal to sell.  And their deli is out of this world.  I once counted and they had over 28 different types of black olives.  It would be easy to spend the day there and have lunch while you wander the aisles of bottles.

Bring lot's of money. A quick restocking run to the wharehouse the other day cost me $202.00, and I carried it all out in two boxes.

It's WAY too easy to spend money there.  I've left there $70 poorer and said, "what did I buy??"

Thanks for the heads up.  I think I'll wait until after Christmas for the day trip then.

Of course the Sweet Bitches that were served that night seemed very popular.

I did the happy dance when they built a Spec's in College Station. All the local package stores that only sell the same ol' standard stock cringed... My only disappointment was that Spec's didn't include a deli.

Spec's is franchised outside of Houston
There is one in San Marcos and one in Beaumont at least
Also several in Austin etc etc
here is the list of locations... Maybe one is closer than Houston

*Spend enough time searching for specific rums... and you track down ALL the Spec's lol*

My hubby, when he was doing commercial real estate, called them about opening a location in Dallas. The owner said he'd love to - the profit margin in Dallas is much higher than in Houston, but he didn't want his daughter and grandkids moving to Dallas. A family member opens each store, you see. So, yeah, no Spec's for the Big D. (And Dallas folks think the only reason to go to Houston is MD Anderson. meh)

I would much much rather have to make the trip from Dallas to Houston to go to Specs instead of MD Anderson!    :o

I have never been to Spec's but I'm guessing Goody Goody Liquor stores might be kind of the same. They have a number of locations here in Dallas.  http://www.goodygoody.com/default.aspx
