MN still has "blue laws" in place? And i thought it was only in the south where these laws were still in force?

But it does lead to long lines of people, still dressed in their go -to-church clothes at liquor stores at noon on Sunday.
When I first moved here from Florida, I was surprised on a Sunday trying to buy beer for a cookout. No alcohol sales of any kind on Sundays.
Now, there are several counties that allow alcohol sales in restaurants, but not in stores.
When i lived in Fl. you had to wait until 12 pm to buy any alcohol.
You can buy cigarettes on Sundays, but until just recently you could not buy a pair of socks.
Little by little, thanks to all the transplants, a normal existence can be had in these parts.
