With changing weather, your changing moods and life's quickly changing priorities, it's getting ever harder to pick the right beverage for a given circumstance. Relax — Tipsy's can help. Big promotion? Ask which single-malt scotch goes best with new money. (The whiskey shelves have grown considerably in the three years that this place has been open.) Picnic with a date? Duh: wine. But Kansas or Missouri, Spain or New Zealand, kosher or organic? Tipsy's has thought this through for you. A martini party? The flavored-vodka selection is crazy. Pinnacle Gummy, Effen Cucumber and Absolut Brooklyn — all here. A dinner gathering with beer snobs? "Mission is a big craft-beer city," says manager Ryan Beach, who has prepared accordingly with mini kegs, gluten-free beers and ciders, and whatever those with home kegerators can fit in their trucks. The articulate employees appreciate suggestions and even welcome critiques — a refreshing change from the mom-and-pop stores that are still trying to pawn off their dusty bottles of Blavod and Ed Hardy Moscato.
