ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons will be here in September to welcome the neighborhood's new liquor store.

The Sam’s Club store on Park Lane, which is moving to the new double-decker Walmart/Sam’s store in Timbercreek Crossing, already sells beer and wine. But the new Sam’s, at Skillman and East Northwest Highway, will also sell liquor.

We didn’t know until today, when we received a press release regarding an appearance from ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons to promote a brand of tequila, that the Walmart company was even in the liquor business. Since it’s Sam’s Club, which is known for selling 50-oz. jars of mustard and the like, we wondered if they would be selling kiddie pools of gin or something. But no, it seems Sam’s Club liquor store sells regular-size bottles.

If you’re interested in seeing guitar legend and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Billy Gibbons, his appearance is from 1-4 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 10, which is the day of the store’s grand opening. He will be signing bottles of Pura Vida Tequila.
