GIANT liquor stores in Austin? Thank you, Santa!

Spec's, a Houston based mega retailer of booze and something known as 'fine food' which means nothing to me, is opening three stores in Austin. Locations for the next year include the 290 and Brodie (which a friend tells me is 'down south', whatever in the hell that means), The ArborWalk at the 360 and MoPac and somewhere near Highland Mall.

For the readers in Houston Metro, let us know what you think about these folks. I'm excited. Anything that has WAREHOUSE paired in some way with LIQUOR has got to be good as far as I'm concerned. These beer people seemed to like them though this is kind of faint praise since I don't really get beer.

Twin Liquors and Reubens. Occasionally I'll go to Costco but their liquor store is so rinky-dink it's sad.

I have to bounce between a couple of locations because they get to know me and it's a little embarrassing when they say, "Hey, McBlogger!" as I walk through the door.

I have no such embarrassment at Specs. They see me coming and the wine guy goes "there's muse with her Chase credit card and Spec's key card. Yipee!". And, I just calmly ask for another wine recommendation.
Spec's key card. LOOK FORWARD TO IT.

So in return for having Props 1 and 2 defeated we get a giant liquor atore in SW Austin? I'm cool with that.

Honestly, I think I am as well... but I am totally going to kick Muse's ass if this thing doesn't live up to expectations!
