Are they allowed at grocery stores, Vons, Albertsons, etc.?
Did a search but couldn't find anything.
How very innovative, btr-L8
We actually have Sunday beer/liquor sales here in Alberta, but it that only happened after our province started allowig for privatized liquor sales (they used to be govenment ran stores only here)
We however do not have liquor for sale anywhere but liquor stores and beer stores.
So I guess it's different everywhere.
When I saw the topic title, I was sure this topic was created by someone in Minnesota. Our laws for alcohol sales are ridiculous.
On Sundays, you can't buy any liquor/beer/wine in stores. Any store. Unless it's non-alcoholic/3.2 beer. At the Minnesota Renaissance Festival, they won't even serve alcohol until noon on Sundays. No morning beers there!
Any day of the week you cannot buy liquor/beer/wine at a grocery store - you have to go to a separate liquor store. Stores like Costco have begun to open liquor stores on the same property as the grocery stores so that they can still sell their giant discount bottles of vodka.
The worst is when you realize that the 4th of July is a Sunday in Minnesota, and you're having a BBQ and you didn't buy enough beer. You can't just run up the street to the local liquor store. Oh, no. Because it's a Sunday. A common thing for people here in the Twin Cities to do is make a "Hudson run," where you drive to Wisconsin to buy beer on a Sunday. Hudson, WI is just across the border on Interstate 94. If you go there on a Sunday (especially a holiday like the 4th of July) and take the first exit once crossing into Wisconsin, the parking lot of the liquor store there is full of cars with Minnesota license plates.
That was a long post. In short - MN also has laws against selling booze on Sundays. That's one of the reasons why Vegas rules.
"A common thing for people here in the Twin Cities to do is make a "Hudson run," where you drive to Wisconsin to buy beer on a Sunday. "
Same thing here in north Texas - look at the plates at the Indian Casinos across the border in Oklahoma - all from Texas.
People like to drink, gamble, and oogle. Thank goodness for Vegas !!!!!!!
