Tony The Wine Guy / Tony The Art Guy Waxes Poetis On Tuesday June 30th, 2015 About Beer, Liqueur, Wine & All Our Collective Spirits, Too!

Cleveland Park Wine Cleveland Park Beer, Liquor & Wine
Featuring a wide, international selection of fine wines, micro-brews and
Humidity Humbles US, Heat Hastens US :  ACTUALLY IT MAY SLOW US TERRIBLY,
and rain is on the way as we know!

We All Look For Shelter From Both the HEAT and the HUMIDITY! HERE @
Cleveland Park Inside Our Store...

We Provide Bountiful Opportunities and Such Shelter that many of our
customers soon break out in big smiles, and sighs of satisfaction as we
offer you a ' new ' experience, or as you come in search of something like
Sue just did, Aquavit that we carry and which she exclaimed ' is sure hard
to find here. One of my friends said that you might have it here.' Glad to
be helpful Sue, just call before you need more as sometimes we are out, or
our distributor is out of it,

We LOVE THIS, ( being helpful, and Sue found other ' goodies ' that she was
also looking for like some finer, hard-to-find, not mainstream wines
available everywhere )  of course, it's our job, we want to make you feel
both relaxed and comfortable here as we chat and listen to you and help you
as best we can.

SUE ALSO GOT to meet Robert Kennedy our Italian importer that was just here
doing a great Italian tasting last Saturday. WE sold even considering the
storms passing through, people still needed and wanted some shelter from
the storms , and we could provide that and fine sparkling wines as well as
non-sparkling dry reds and whites from Robert's portfolio.
