(Sun Sentinel)   Delray considers lifting the ban prohibiting the sale of alcohol on Sunday mornings. Because let's face it, the easiest way to deal with finding yourself there on a Sunday is to get unbelievably drunk   (sun-sentinel.com) divider line 25

Delray is literally the only place in FL I like.

I've always thought blue laws to be archaic and stupid (and a blatant argument against anyone who claimed that there are no religious laws on the books) but interestingly, here in Texas, I found some of the people most opposed to lifting laws against Sunday liquor sales are not religious people but rather small liquor store owners - they want the day off and/or don't want to have to compete with big-box liquor stores (Specs here in Texas).  Still, I don't think it would hurt to be able to buy a beer before noon.

/Texas - wine or beer on Sunday but not before noon.  No hard liquor on Sundays (so no liquor stores open).  No hard liquor in grocery stores at all.

PC LOAD LETTER: Delray is literally the only place in FL I like.


I like the Morikami but it can be hard dealing with the Crypt People. Been a while since I've been that way so my reference may be 5 years out of date.

In Michigan, we used to have a prohibition on buying alcohol before noon on Sunday.  Made it a pain in the ass for football tailgates if you forgot to buy the beer the night before.

As a resident of Georgia who was turned away at the grocery store at 12:15 yesterday afternoon I'm getting a kick out of this ... Not

 Our small government conservatives only barely passed legislation in 2011 allowing individual municipalities to sell after 12:30 on Sundays. Before that , package sales were banned statewide on Sunday... because Jesus or something

That probably is the unstated reason.  You should be in church, not drinking.

Still waiting for Indiana to grow up and end the Sunday (all day) ban.  Luckily, I'm only five minutes from the bridge to buy it in Louisville, but it's still petty and annoying.  It would suck to be in the middle of the state.

I still think that it is awesome that you can't actually buy Jack Daniel's in Lynchburg. I've never been able to wrap my head around that one.

So drive 1.5 miles up or down the road and buy beer at the other Publix.

I live in Oklahoma..All beer at grocery stores is 3.2 which is a low alcohol week beer.  Anything else including wine has to be bought from a dedicated liquor store. These stores are not open on Sundays....

I'm all ears as to an actual reason why Sunday is a special day that we shouldn't allow alcohol sales on that doesn't rely on a religious justification.

I haven't ever heard one...

Delray's not that bad subby. Riviera Beach or Lake Worth on the other hand.

Please explain to me why I shouldn't be allowed to buy my booze for Thanksgiving on the Sunday before but can buy anything else I need. Difficulty: I'm not religious.

New York City is an odd place about where you can buy your alcohol. You can buy beer and wine from a grocery or beer and wine store. The beer and wine stores don't sell liquor. You have to buy liquor from a liquor store but these aren't allowed to sell anything that isn't liquor which means you have to buy your mixers somewhere else. No soda, juice or anything.

An odd system.

Keep your sharia laws about alcohol on Sundays out of my liquor stores, y'bluehairs. Not all of us were brainwashed into your cult, kthx.

Ftfa And there doesn't seem to be any prohibition to changing the prohibition among his fellow commissioners. Many residents say they would toast a rule change. The blue laws sometimes lead to booze-less football watch parties, residents say.

The fact that someone got paid to write this makes me sad

They can still get this without the arguments of religious entaglement. Say liquor stores have to be closed one day a week, they choose. The car dealerships were choose one of Saturday / Sunday to be closed.

I doubt they'd pick Saturday or Sunday, considering many of their clients are off of work so they can sell them products. They'd almost certainly pick a slow day for sales, like Tuesday or Wednesday.

I'm guessing Tuesday, at least if in Texas (Weds is a church day). The car dealership it isn't a choice. It is close one of Saturday or Sunday.
