Lone Star Beer
Here's the final destination on my field trip, Crespo Food and Liquor in Chicago. They're one of the few retail outlets that carry Lone Star Beer. I was under the impression that this was a large grocery store but it seems there are no large grocery stores in the city, at least I didn't see a single one after I passed into the city limits. What do these people do for groceries?
This was a very small place, about the size of my family room. They carried mostly liquor and thankfully had plenty of the Lone Star I was hunting for. There was a small cooler inside the front door, the kind you find at the grocery check out filled with Coke and water. This cooler however was filled with quarts of cheap wine.
