    So what would you do?

    I have had the glass shattered in my Avanti wine cooler and have moved the smokes back into the cool-a-dor. My question is would you replace the glass if I can (I got a deal on the Avanti - only $40.00 off of Craig's list) or buy the Vinotemp at Target or just keep the smokes in the cool-a-dor...

    Behold the power of the Palio!!!
