They Sell Wine, Too?

I didn't know there were alcoholic libations available at 99¢ Only Stores, but this intriguing possibility is raised by Heseon Park's Times feature on the newest installment in Ken Roht's annual discount-store holiday extravaganza. And I thought Charles Shaw had cornered the market on what the English endearingly call "plonk."

The piece's money quote, though, comes--not surprisingly--from an always quotable trouper:
"You just have no idea how wet underclothes can get until you have done back-to-back perfs of a 99¢ show," said Colleen Wainwright, who plays a stilt-walking mom in the village.

Well, I guess now we do.
