Disorderly Rosy Riddle

You wake up on the pier of downtown Puzzlania with a splitting headache.  You don't know what you're doing here, but you seem to remember Skinny Dakota having something to do with it.  You're about to give him a call when you realize that your cellular phone is missing; in it's place you find a note.

 "Friend, I wanted to thank you again for a wonderful night on the town.  I expect I'll see you this afternoon when you drop off our wager from last night?"  Unfortunately, you have no memory of making a bet with Skinny, let alone what you owe him or where you had planned to meet.  Fortunately, Skinny anticipated this development.  "You probably don't remember much of last night, so I'd recommend you start your day by heading toward the shop we perused yesterday.  You remember, the one that sells ___________?"

Skinny has deliberately omitted the final word, but on the back of the note you notice several unrelated sentences-- they must be a clue about which shop you're supposed to visit.
