Should Stores be Allowed to Sell Liquor on Sundays?
Texas legislators have a bill to consider this session-one that would allow liquor sales on Sunday. When I moved here many years ago, I was surprised when I went to buy beer one Sunday and couldn't, mainly because it was allowed every other place I've lived. I was also surprised that you can only buy it up to a certain hour in Texas. In fact, the only other restriction on booze that I've encountered was in North Carolina, where you had to be a member of a private club to buy mixed drinks, unless food made up a major percentage of your business, namely restaurants. Beyond that, many bars could only sell beer and wine, unless they were a private club. But I digress.
