How to get a copy of LCBO's 2011 Food & Drink Holiday magazine ?

My wife is a big fan and we both have been super busy and missed picking it up at LCBO. I want to find/buy one for her for Christmas. Any ideas ?

  1. I know the feeling....

    Your best bet would be to call Head Office to see if they happen to have any extras kicking around.

    1. Is it just me or have they cut way down on the number of copies distributed? I haven't snagged a copy of any issue in probably 2 years.

        It's really location/traffic-dependent. They vanished from some Mississauga stores long ago but were still around some Brampton stores early last week. It's a pricey piece of copy and I wonder how long they'll continue with it.

          When I see the amount of adds in it, I think it is one of the smarter moves made by the LCBO.

            Easy for a monopoly to justify the expense I am sure:) I will keep an eye out for an extra copy when in LCBOs over the next while but I imagine most of them are gone by now.

        2. The recipes are posted online.

          1. They always post when the magazines are due to arrive at my local LCBO (Jane/Dundas area) and they're scooped within the day.

            The on line collection isn't complete, but apparently they're working on it


            1. Every issue states in it when the next one will be released....let's you know when to go and pick one up.

                If I could get my hands on an issue in the first place... maybe someone can post the info here next time around :)

                  Next issue is due to be released Jan 11/12

                      I don't know why but there were lots of the holiday edition on last Friday Dec 16th at the Victoria Park and Danforth location

                        I picked up a copy of the 2011 Holiday edition yesterday afternoon at the Vic Park and Danforth LCBO ! Thanks Fluke17. I guess the clientele at this LCBO aren't the demographic that are looking for this magazine.

                          I was going to make a snotty comment about the demographic... which I know quite well since that was my liquor store in High School, er, I mean as a young adult ;)
