My neighbor in MN has literally hundreds of bottles of whiskey in his home, so I suspect he knows where the best spots are. He raves about France 44 in Linden Hills, but never been myself. I personally really like Ace Spirits in Hopkins as well, which this same neighbor got me into.

Surdyks in NE is pretty good for not having to drive too far

Surdyks was my go-to for years. Fastball down the middle in terms of good selection and solid price. Depends on how “specialty” you’re looking for. They have limited specialty options in my experience.

Hi there. Seems like my current agency is starting to think about sending us back into the office. I know some people may not agree, but I’ve thoroughly enjoyed working from home and don’t have plans to stop. That being said, I’m interested in hearing if there are reputable pharma agencies that are fully remote? Thanks in advance!

Have an offer in industry. It’s a relatively new company that is growing fast and lots of opportunity to move up quickly and make a difference. Salary increase wouldn’t be large but enough to make a difference. My heart wants to do it but there is risk involved - not as much stability as the Big 4 company I work for and I’m supporting a family. What do I do? Follow my passion or stay in the safe zone given things are still up in the air with Covid? I appreciate your opinion fishes!

Hi everyone. I interviewed for a sales role at Amazon. I was told the role was an L6 and I can stay based in Chicago. Well, the recruiter emailed me today saying the hiring team felt I was better suited for an L5 role (estimated total comp is $140K-$150K) and I would have to move to Seattle. They'll send me an offer if that works. Any advice or opinions on how to negotiate? For context, I gave a desired salary range of $280K-$310K since this was an L6 role, and my current TC at P&G is $200K.
