Should liquor stores in Kansas be allowed to offer customers sample tastings before buying products?

Living in Missouri, I have often benefited as a consumer from these tastings. Often a favorite liquor store of mine, offers free tastings on Friday's and Saturday's. Through the tastings I have bought several suggested wines, spirits, but especially beers. It is a great way to get customers into the store, and try new things they wouldn't normally try. After all, who wants to spend $15 on a bottle of wine or more only to find out it doesn't agree with their palate? Really, I don't even understand the reasoning as to why not.....unless of course your a hold-over from the prohibitionist days.

Uh, yes they do. Did you put any thought in this response before you posted?

The Burger Stand set to move out of Dempsey's and into the Casbah

Whoever he is, he is a crony. I just went through some of his past comments. Obviously he is connected to the owners of Dempsey's and is in the restaraunt business.....let me post you a few.

Thank you for finally bringing a quality burger to Lawrence. My cheeseburger was $6.99 and worth every penny. The burger at Freestate is $10 and it is terrible. I'm shocked people complain about a $6.99 dinner. The same burger at Blanc in KC is $8.99. If $6.99 is out of your price range for dinner, Checkers is having a sale on Alpo. Enjoy!

Star burger at Pach is very good. It was my favorite until Dempsey's opened. Dempsey's burgers are a tenderloin, ribeye and strip blend.
I hope Henry T's does well with the new concept. It might be a tough sell since the only Kobe their current clientel knows about is Kobe Bryant.

Jason has confirmed my belief that nobody can post anything about a business unless he/she has owned a business. It's just that your comments sound really stupid to business owners.

Robert & Molly,
Good luck with the new venture, I'm sure it will be a huge success. I will miss your talent as a first class chef and your staff's professionalism.

BBQ=Beimers
Burgers=Dempsey's
Sandwiches=Quintons

I was involved in a business matter and the property came up in question. During the meeting, we were privvy to the names of the owners and the bank loan info. All I remeber was there were a lot of co-signers on the note and rate was the highest I have ever seen.

NOTICE A TREND?
In the beginning he was praising Dempsey's for their burgers (which he never admits it was The Burger Stand) his favorite food places were Quintons and Dempseys, he mentions that only "business" owners should respond to business issues, and that he was in on a "business matter" that involved a night-club property, not to include his countless post on liqour licenses gripes. If he isn't your husband he is someone close to you.

And now he is slamming Robert and Simon for their future plans. Those quotes of his don't lie.

You have been served!

If they were a "succesful bar" why did they bring Dempsey's in for the first place? Come on' Larry! Common sense would tell you that when a bar that was already serving food decides to bring in a chef/celbrity it isn't to help the chef. I don't have to be a crony of Krause's to know that. Alls I had to was go into Dempseys when The Burger Stand opened on a Saturday afternoon and compare it with a year later. It is obvious The Burger Stand saved Dempsey's.

I think we all know who has the real Napoleon complex and their name starts with a g and ends with jmshm......The Burger Stand is the best burger joint in North East Kansas. Dempsey's was a shee hole before they came in. People will follow Robert and Simon wherever they go!
