Notable American book selling company Barnes & Noble recently announced that there will not only be books and magazines gracing their racks and shelves.
Soon you will be able to enjoy a refreshing mug of your favorite brewski or a delectable glass of your preferred red or white wine while you peruse the books and mags in their store.
As if that wasn’t awesome enough, check this: select pilot stores (Eastchester, New York – Edina, Minnesota – Folsom, California and Loudon, Virginia will also features an expanded food menu (eeeek!).
This is clearly designed for singles checkin’ out a book who see a hot boy/girl, head on over and ask him/her to have a drink that will take that uncomfortable or excruciating edge off.
But moms can take advantage of this brand new boozing opportunity:
#1. Enjoy Your time Away
Most moms feel sleazy about just going to a bar, ordering a drink and sitting there all by her lonesome.
This is really just an open invitations for creeps to step into your “bubble zone” and glom onto you – something you do NOT need.
Book stores have an entirely different vibe.
No one will be leering at you in a disgusting and disturbing manner.
Chances are, no one will even talk to you (they appreciate the fact that you are in the middle of a fantastic read).

If anyone asks you about the book you’re reading, there is a good chance that they are genuinely interested in that book you’re reading (it’s not just a pick up line!).
Hence, a book store is a safe place to have a glass of an adult beverage outside of the home.
#2. Take The Edge Off
Once upon a time, book stores were a boring place to for kids (I mean, what sane kid wants to explore aisles and aisles of documentaries and political pieces?).
Today, book stores have created “kid-zones”, evil places which are filled with not only kid books, but TOYS.
Lots and LOTS of toys.
Toys that have already been qualified by some institution which has stated that “THIS” toy is beneficial to your child for “X” reason or “THAT” toy is a must-have because it does “Y”.
Aaaand then there are a load of toys which cost anywhere from $1 to $5 near the cash register because they know desperate parents who just want to be able to choose their next best escape will pay for it.
Do this with a glass of wine in hand?
Oh, it is truly divine.
Sure, there may be some people judging from the outliers of the store but they won’t be parents.
Everyone else in that “kid-zone” will be clinking glasses with you.
Cheers, Barnes & Noble!
Not only are you creating a more relaxed environment, but you are creating one where you stand to earn some extra dollars.
And no one’s complaining.
