Spec's Liquor

Baileys in the morning, Rose Regale as an afternoon treat, and unfiltered sake bombing all night long; the lady had a very demanding palate. When we first set out to sate her lady's desires, our trek took us to three different liquor outlets. No go. Then we decided to give in and check out the recent Houston-transplant mega-mart Spec's. Oh, wow. Not only did we fill our shopping list, but we added a few gourmet-deli delicacies to boot – pâté, olives, chutney, cigars, imported chocolate … whooooo, what an affair. And the lady? Well there are plenty in line waiting to cover her tab, but we, on the other hand, will always have Spec's – and its 12 under $12 wine specials, oh yes.
