So a liquor store means "bad crowd" of people, just by it's presence? Or am I missing something?

Legit question from me, not from the States so have no clue.

It's scary now.
I'm not happy we have that store here.
If you mean West Plano, why would I want to go to West Plano?

All I can say is

Highland Park = wet
Mesquite = dry
Care to try again? Colleyville = wet

We just moved here 6 months ago and are loving it. In fact, I've shopped at the liquor store in question.
