Pigged out at Whole Food’s monthly free-for-all yesterday (chorizos, Mexican wedding cake, fajitas, a salted virgin margarita, you get the picture). Funniest overheard comment — a sophisticated boy about 12, eating Manchego cheese and telling his mom, “I’ve been waiting for this day to come.” In related news, liquor disappears from the store soon.
The distibution license will go to the Middletown Whole Foods, which apparently has more space. In yesterday’s Montclair Times, an approved transfer of Whole Food’s liquor license went to Sharon A. Sevrens, who is said to be scoping out locations in Montclair for a new liquor store. We happen to know Sevrens is a sommelier. We tasted Rieslings with her at an Essex County Wine Society event and she’s got quite a palate. Maybe she’ll shake things up and do a wine/cheese style shop or something unique. We’ll follow up.
