Whole Foods Opens Another Bar

We're kind of intrigued by the move Whole Foods' has been making over the past year to get into the on-premise beer and wine biz with the opening of in-store bars in six of its stores around the U.S. The latest, called Bar Lamar, opened a few weeks ago in Austin, and features craft brews and locally produced wines. Apparently, the grocery chain is planning open more bars in stores across the U.S. over the next year, so keep an eye out in your neck of the woods. It certainly seems like a clever money-making tactic, but what do you think? Would you belly up to the bar at your neighborhood grocery store?
