There are plenty of supply issues and shortages happening across the country, but when you mess with our booze on the holidays, that's where we draw the line.

For the past year, we've heard of the labor shortages and shipping issues that have caused many industries to go into a panic. We were warned to buy our Halloween costumes early, and start that Christmas shopping already so that the problems being seen don't affect everyday life. People have managed to handle the issues quite well, although the additional financial strain has made some family's budgets for the week a little tighter than normal. Now, there's a new problem popping up across the Lone Star State and it might affect your holiday parties coming up.

According to ABC 7 News an alcohol shortage is on the way and is already being seen in Dallas. The news outlet spoke to the regional manager of Spec's Liquors Jake Duke who said they're seeing people actually show up and wait to see what booze is coming in that day:

"We had 50 people waiting in line, just to see what we had coming in this morning because it's a guessing game for us, just as it is for the guest. They don't know what's coming. We don't know what's coming."

For those not willing to wait, the manager said that they do have alcohol in stock but certain types are flying off the shelves. So if there's something you absolutely have to have at your holiday gathering, better to stock up early and soon.
