Wine samples delivered to you door! NEVER MIND, you live in Maryland and can't have it
Hello Suckers, as
Toots Shor Texas Guinan used to say.
Check out this neat-o innovation in wine buying:
Great little gifts, right, an all-around appealing idea -- Eater even has a coupon for the the Tasting Room today.
Or maybe it's actually a very stupid idea, but you'll never know.
Because if you live in Maryland, the Free
Sucker State, you can't order from Tasting Room. It's against the law.
If you lived in non-sucker states like Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, Washington, Wisconsin, Wyoming or the District of Columbia, you could order from Tasting Room
There's a sister-kissing direct shipping bill now making its way through the
Maryland Sucker State State House. As it currently stands, it would allow you to order wine directly from wineries but you would still not be able to order from Tasting Room, or any other retailer, or a wine-of-the-month club.
That's what you get for living in the Sucker State!
