El Pelon coming to Brookline

Actually, it Rod Dee is on the INBOUND side of Beacon just before Winthrop. Very little if any action in the reputed El Pelon storefront next door to Rod Dee to date.

An unscientific look at local by-the-glass wine pricing [moved from Boston board]

A good wine store charges about 50%+ over wholesale per bottle. A lousy wine store charges more. So wholesale $30 equals about $45 retail. OR, wholesale is 2/3 of retail. Restaurants pay the same as stores. In Mass. the beverage journal every month lists about every wine from almost every wholesaler. The price is the price for everyone.
