I think the Corona barge sank or something..... Almost everyone was out of Corona this week! I stopped to get gas, no Corona. I was confused! How can I fill up my truck without 1 or 2 Coronas? Gateway said they had to get it from STT! WTF?!?! I just want my Coronas!!! I hope the barge arrives tomorrow with a load of Coronas! Just sayin!

My understanding is that Brazil ran out for the world cup, and they diverted our shipments. I heard this through the coconut vine from a somewhat reliable source though.

Hey, I'm on St Thomas and we don't have any either! Last Friday after work, went to Fat Turtle and ordered a Corona - all out! The bartender told me that the distributor had run out, and nobody had any! Went shopping over the weekend, and all the stores were out except for Gourmet Gallery (but it was priced so high, you'd have to be really really really thirsty).
