Best Place to Buy Booze 

The Village Bootlegger

Most liquor stores aren't about frills, just harsh fluorescent lights blazing down on row after row of tequila bottles. It's a rare shop that manages to exude ambiance, and that's what makes the Village Bootlegger so special. Tucked away from its strip-mall neighbors at the corner of state routes 82 and 21, the little shop is cozy and cute, from its name to its soft mood lighting. This is no warehouse to grab and go: It's a spot to linger, to consider the difference between double- and single-malt scotch, to spend a moment of quiet contemplation before you get blitzed.
