Smirnoff Vodka and Martini Shakers

Filed under: Uncategorized — urbandumpsterdiver @ 3:43 am

Tonight’s finds.

2 boxes of Grey Goose martini shakers. The stainless steel kind, sturdy, about 20 ounces. Good stuff. There were more but I couldn’t get them all. The local police was sitting by the dumpster eating dinner. I walked up, said hello, don’t mind me, I’m looking for good stuff they throw away. He said OK, have a nice night.

Cops are great. I think the very fact that I said hi and announced myself may have made all the difference in the world. That way he doesn’t think I’m some vagrant wandering around looking for trouble.

My next store on my route threw out a box of Vodka with 2 bottles. Upon careful search found one of the bottles broken (probably in the store) but the 2nd bottle untouched and unopened. Woo hoo, Vodka in the house.

I’m giving away the Vodka and the martini shakers to my retail friends where I shop on a regular basis. I’m going to fill the shakers with homemade cookies and other goodies I have on hand.



  1. Day-umm! Totally sweet score!

    Keep your eye out for local events at hotels, etc. for charity/fundraising-type events that will most likely be catered. Diving after events like that can be very rewarding…

  2. I will! That Vodka was a score and so were those shakers. I already have 2 at home, so I’ll be making gift baskets out of the 8 I found last night.
