The Genius of Modesto

Here at K&L in the Bay Area, we're way too focused on the liquor thing. While driving through my native Modesto this weekend, I found this little gem on a back country road.  Part liquor store, part hotel, and part cafe, the Blu-Lite offers the ultimate in customer service.  Grab yourself a room, head over to the front desk (which also happens to be the liquor store counter) and grab a 12-pack of beer while you're at it.  Maybe a bag of chips, too.  The rooms are just behind the sign.  I would have taken a better picture, but they didn't seem too keen on my documenting the secrets of their enterprise. 

So there it is – the genius of Modesto. Blu-Lite Motel & Liquor.  I'm taking this idea to K&L ownership.
