Mordecia Blue-Briggans, manager of a BevMo store in Bellevue, joined Margaret to mix up a few colorful cocktails for tailgate parties and other get togethers. He also shared plans to celebrate BevMo's one-year anniversary in Washington State this weekend by opening their tenth store (at 910 E. Park Drive in Issaquah). On Saturday, September 28, all ten BevMo stores in the state will offer wine and beer tastings and demonstrations. Also, the first 100 customers at every location will receive special gift bags.
