Morning Notes

Trump Wine Flying Out the Door — As grocery chain Wegmans faces scrutiny for selling Trump Winery products, wine stores around D.C. are reporting booming sales. In Reston, The Wine Cabinet (1416 North Point Village Center) says they’ve sold more than 10 cases since Election Day — and they could have sold more, co-owner Mike Mackie said, if they hadn’t run out.

ArtSpace Herndon Kicks Off Concert Series — Guitarist-songwriter Parthenon Huxley played with indie rocker and violinist Ben Hoyt as Herndon’s arts district began its 2017 concert series last weekend.

    So the Trumpettes are quite literally drinking the Kool-Aid now. Hilarious.

      More liquor, less guns & ammo? count me in!

      • Mike M

        Oh, no. I think sales of guns and ammo will be swinging upward again after this past week.

        • Guest

          I hope so for the sake of self-employed and small business dealers. They did well over the past eight years. The current administration has terribly depressed purchases and price flexibility.

          Hobbyists are consistent. Doomsday preppers not so much.

    Unlike you, I’m not wishing it were crowded.
