Liquor Store Stocks Up for Booze-Free Vikings Game

Value Liquors -- which is right next to TCF Bank Stadium in Minneapolis -- tells TMZ they're preparing for huge business since officials nixed alcohol sales in the college stadium for the matchup with the Chicago Bears

We're told the store ordered 50 cases of flasks, and over 4,000 airplane-size bottles of liquor. Hmmm ... wonder what fans are gonna do with those?

Peeps at the stadium say flasks and alcohol are strictly prohibited ... but fans tend to forget the rules when it's 20 degrees and snowing.
