Make a List & Check it Twice Do your research ahead of time. Figure out which stores have what you want, and plan to make a b-line to them right off the bat. The glitz and glam of sales can be deceiving sometimes, so make a list that you can follow throughout the day. If you have a good idea of what you're looking for, it will be harder to get distracted along the way.

The one that confuses us the most though, is draught and draft...how do we know which one to use, or how to pronounce it? Li'l Rizzo's has the best bar at the Lake of the Ozarks, so we're curious what the difference is between draught and draft.
