Two liquor stores (“packys” in the local dialect) in Massachusetts known for their clever signs are challenging the public to come up with something even funnier. Sav-Mor Liquors says the winner will receive “a VIP Brewery Experience at the Samuel Adams brewery.”
When Valentine’s Day rolled around in 2012, the sign at Sav-Mor Liquors in Somerville said what every person without a date that day may have been thinking: “Valentine’s Day Blah Blah Blah Drink.”
More recently, the sign weighed in on the fall pumpkin spice craze with, “We sell lots of pumpkin crap.”
The witticisms on the sign have been a cherished trademark of the store for years, and have earned the owners both local and national accolades. A sign was once featured on an episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live.
Now, for the first time ever, Sav-Mor Liquors, which has stores and signs in both Somerville and Medford, is holding a contest, asking customers to come up with their own snappy sayings.
