Invited to a Super Bowl party that is BYOB? No one wants to be “that guy” who shows up empty-handed and then mooches everyone else’s beer. If you’re looking for a place to pick up some cheap beer to bring, don’t forget about the cash & carry at Carolina and Second.
I haven’t been in there in about a year, but when I was there they had a pretty big selection of beer. Prices were good too. I remember seeing a 12-pack of PBR 24 ounce tallboys for about $14.
It’s a CASH & carry, so if you’re the type who normally charges everything on a credit card, you’ll want to hit an ATM before going down there. Also, its hours tend to be a little unusual – last I checked they closed at 3:45 on weekdays and even earlier on Saturdays (is it 2:45 or 11:45? Trying not to confuse it with Lit).
Check it out for cheap beer, and for cheap groceries as well. The candy store across the street is not a bad place to stop either.
