Apparently the advertising folks at Sam’s Club don’t pay much attention to where they ship their advertising inserts.

This morning’s paper had a Sam’s Club insert with lots of great Big Game deals (they can’t use the copyrighted name Super Bowl to promote their stuff), including a couple of varieties of Budweiser and Coor’s Light.

That may work in a lot of other places, but the local Sam’s Club is in a dry county where package alcohol beverages may not be sold. Sorry, Sam’s Club shoppers. There’s no waiver for the Super Bowl.

To be fair, the fine print does stipulate, “Available in select clubs only.”

Too bad ours isn’t “select.”
