Liqour laws around here differ from city to city and township. For instance, the town of Sunbury, which is 8 miles away forbids the sale of wine on Sundays. The laws also state that alcoholic beverages cannot be sold within 100 yards of a church. However, wine may be served during Communion (I think that's it) in a church on Sundays. :? Okay, I'm sure there's some legalese involved that eventually makes sense but it's still sounds dumb.

Alix are you collecting those little yellow sponges? If you are, you're in the news.
I saw that in the news and immediately thought of Alix. I did see an 18 wheeler running north at high speed on I-5 through Eugene with a Canadian plate. Paked full too, and a funny squarehead in the passenger seat. Any comment Alix>

Send a message via MSN to crewsk
In SC, the liqueur stores must close at 7PM & the sale of alcoholic beverages are prohibited on Sunday unless you own a "private" bar. And we have the 100 yards thing here too.

OK, things are open everyday of the week here. LOL. I can get booze whenever I feel the urge. I was most surprised one holiday to find the store closed! I guess everyone deserves a holiday, I just wasn't thinking.

Alix, I've been to Toronto and London MANY times and the differences in liqour laws are insane. For example, up until last year the legal definition of "beer" was limited to 5.9%. They relaxed the law a bit and now I see Molson XXX at the store but you still cannot buy a bottle of Sam Adams Triple Bock (17%) here, at least in Ohio. You can buy it in Indiana, that much I know. Whew! I bet the amount of pages in the Federal Tax Code are NOTHING compared to the laws involved in selling alcohol! :roll:
