Rodmans Food & Drug Store in downtown Washington is just one liquor store location where owners say they have sold more champagne bottles in the past 12 hours than during any previous holidays. Photos and videos from around the nation’s capital show joyful people wearing pro-Biden apparel, celebrating his election win over President Donald Trump. One Fox News correspondent near the White House said celebrations smelled of marijuana and sprays of champagne bottles have continued in the hours since Biden’s victory was announced.
Several Getty images show hundreds of empty Veuve Clicquot champagne bottles, wine bottles and Truly Hard Seltzers stacked up against trash cans throughout Washington. A customer at Tenley Market liquor store tweeted Saturday night that champagne and blunt wraps were selling out there as well.
