It was announced today that hard liquor will not be sold
in the store this summer. Only in the bars in mixed drinks.
Only beer and wine will be available in both places. All
in the effort to save the program money. No word yet whether
this will affect Palmer and South Pole stations as well.
It's not a big deal to us since we're not drinkers, but
it will be a big inconvenience to a lot of the hard core
drinkers down here. It was also announced a few weeks ago
that smoking will only be allowed in two designated buildings,
instead of the current four, slowly making it a smoke-free
workplace. It certainly is going to be an interesting summer!
