Should I Spend Donuts on Hooch City?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

The booze is out of Springfield!  It’s a battle of Homer vs. the 18th Amendment, with whiskey on the line…or just that wonderful Duff.  So grab those sprinkles because the store is packed with boozey inspired items to fill your Springfield with!

As we all know, that limited-time label can tempt us to grab everything in sight because it’ll be gone soon.  But don’t sweat it!  That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth those donuts and what you might want to hold off on.

Wondering if you should add Hooch City to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this self-serve wine station to your town…

Building/Decoration: Hooch City
Donut Cost: 
50 Donuts
20 /4hrs. Once you finish the mini-event prize track it’ll go to $135,15xp/4hrs
Consumerism +20

Leaves stores March 21st

-Comes with a questline
-Will Help earn event currency (drinks)
-Fun animation when in use, “wine pump” hose goes haywire and shoots wine everywhere

-From what I can see there are no tasks at Hooch City after the initial questline (if you have found something different, please let me know)

Final Thought
Premium or Freemium:
50 Donuts is not a bad buy for this building unless you’re only interested in items with a bonus %.  It does stink that there’s currently no permanent task there, but otherwise it’s not a bad building & can fit into a lot of city designs.

Of course, in the end, it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would or wouldn’t do…and as I premium player, I’ll likely get it.   But whatever you decide, just make sure you make your final decision before it leaves our games for good (or for now).  Also, this is one of those items that will help you earn more currency…so the earlier you pick it up the more beneficial it is to you.

Here’s a look at the small questline….

Marge starts

Marge: A Hooch City finally landed in Springfield! I can finally use all those coupons.
Bernice Hibbert: I have always wanted to try the fill-your-own-box boxed wine.
Lindsay Naegle: As the president of the AA, I should probably scout this place out…for research, of course. Sweet, delicious research.

  1. Hooch City

    It’s everything I want in a Building, except no permanent Character Tasks (make those Ladies have a permanent 5 Hour Wine-o-Thon , EA!) …. guess I will wait for a return to the Stores at Discount. 🤔

  2. I love the looks of it and bought it right away. Weird Al will definitely use it for his 12 hour job.

  3. I got it. Only slightly regret it.

  4. Ned has a 2 hour task here to “Shop for Communion Wine” and I think that Wise Guy on his 10 hour task and Weird Al on his 12 hour task can animate this building when they are near it. I like that EA have been giving new tasks for new buildings lately though I have not found a task for anyone to go to Scrap City recently from the last event.

  5. I know this has nothing to do with anything but I like it in my car park… purchased just for the extra gas 😊

  6. Having a fun animation “when in use” is useless if it’s never “in use” (since there are no tasks there). Could probably finagle the wise guy into it occasionally, but it’s just too much trouble. This one will be a pass.
