    there’s a big rack of them at the italian store too.

    • Lardery

      Bad choice of words there–unless you mean some of the moms!

  • Tabs

    yay Girl Scouts!

  • Cookies and culture wars!

    • yequalsy

      Yeah I hear eating a thin mint will turn you into a militant-lesbian satan-worshiping abortion doctor. Good thing I prefer samoas.

      • bemused bystander

        Which will turn you into a militant-straight God-worshipping anti-abortion Virginia state delegate?

      • R. Griffon

        Sounds pretty awesome. I’d better double my order.

      • BlueSkies

        After all the brouhaha this year about Girl Scouts, I’ll be buying more cookies than usual.

      • Tabs

        Don’t be silly. This year’s lesbian cookie is the ThankUBerryMunch.

  • JamesE

    Frozen thin mints!

  • DarkHeart

    So when do I get the ones I ordered from the kid down the street?

  • ArlingtonNative

    Think I’ll go pick up a few boxes and then go sit out at the Westover Beer Garden this PM and wash ’em down with some sudsy refreshment

    • dTagg

      +100

      Just don’t buy it from Arrowine. Because refusing to tolerate comments about an article you wrote is annoying and insecure. Also, they don’t have Charles Shaw.

      • BlueSkies

        Agreed – what’s up with the no-comments policy? On a subject like beer? Isn’t one of the points of drinking beer to make it easier to talk to people?

        • Lardery

          Yeah. And the few comments that popped up that one time were largely supportive of the advertorials.

          I mean, if a comments brouhaha broke out about whether a Trappist ale is really a bock or something–wouldn’t that actually be great exposure for the shop?

          • Tabs

            Those people are snotty.

  • You can also download the Girl Scout Cookie Locator app on your smartphone. Enter your ZIP and it will tell you the nearest booths. Or go to http://cookielocator.littlebrownie.com/

  • @ Darkheart, she should be bringing them by in the next week or so!

  • Ed

    Mmmm, samoas. I hear coconut is displacing acai as the new superfood.

  • Pentagee

    Is it cash-only at the booths, or do they take credit cards?

    • Tabs

      I’m pretty sure the GS takes credit cards.

  • Cookie Monster

    COOKIES!
