Default Cheapest place to buy alcohol?

I'm planning an office happy hour and only have about $350 for the alcohol... which needs to provide for roughly 100 people.

Where are the cheapest places to buy alcohol, more specifically beer? I'm looking at a mix of coronoa, sol, heineken, and sam adams.

For mixed drinks, probably just going with either margaritas or sangria. If you hadn't noticed, we have a mexican theme going...

BTW, in NYC

check several places, liquor stores, distributors, grocery stores depending on what state you live in and where they sell it.


Find deal

Profit?

Cruise Ship.

We picked up a liter of Absolut for $9, liter of Belvedere (sp?) for $12 and a liter of Baily's for $11. Gotta love them cruise lines...

If your not on a cruise ship then stay away from WA state, our liquor is very expensive!
