Hey there, time traveller!

It's been a little quiet on the blog front for me as of late - having this second child around has made life somewhat chaotic.
Anyhow, just a quick note to let you know what is and isn't open tomorrow re: buying wine, beer and spirits:
Manitoba's Liquor Marts are closed with the following exceptions:
- The River and Osborne Liquor Mart in Winnipeg will be open from noon until 6:00 p.m.
- The Dauphin Liquor Mart will be open from 10:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m.
- The Gimli Liquor Mart will be open from noon until 6:00 p.m.
- The Lac du Bonnet Liquor Mart will be open from 11:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m.
I think I'll open a nice Canuck white or rosé tomorrow, providing the weather is good. I'll try to post a review accordingly in the near future. How about you - any plans to celebrate Canada Day with a homegrown wine or beer?
Speaking of beer, this Saturday's column is an open letter to the beer of the world - I had hoped to review the Half Pints St. James Pale Ale, which is now available in six-packs at Liquor Marts and some beer vendors, but my initial search found that it was out of stock everywhere. Well, it appears that it's once again available, and I snagged some the other day. I'll also try and get a review in this space in the days to come - perhaps in video format.
