Parking for Greeks only

In these days of economic gloom, it's always interesting to see a queue so proceeding along Old Compton St. we joined a throng of mainly young-ish people outside (and inside) a shop called Gerry's who claim to be

the UK's largest selection of spirits and liqueurs. Over the years, our store in the centre of London's vibrant Soho has become famous for being something of an Aladdin's Cave of rare, weird and wonderful examples of the distiller's art.

So spirits were what everyone was queuing for just before Christmas. We joined them and clocked a Peruvian Cabernet Sauvignon at over £17 on the way in. They definitely have an eclectic selection. The original Gerry must have been Greek because ancient sign (difficult to determine whether BC or AD) offers free parking if you are Greek.
