It turns out blue laws don't pay the bills.

This town is way more funner than any outsider suspects.

END PROHIBITION?  But what will keep the Irish from turning into a drunken mob?  And all those eye-talians!  This is Franklin Rooseveltses fault I tells ya'!  We need prohibishin to maintain Christian Purity(tm) in America!

There are still a lot of dry towns in PA. I know a businessman in Bellevue (right outside of Pgh) who spent a couple years trying to change that to help economic development in the area. He lost. He serves drinks to the clients in his old-school barbershop tho! It's legal if you give it away. And non-profits can serve it without a liquor license by just asking for a "donation"; there is usually a suggested amount for said donation, but no one cares - they're happy about it.

I wonder if any of the garage bars in the story also have garage bands. It does sound like they have more fun than we suspect.

It's less than 10 minutes to New Milford where you can find restaurants and all the liquor you can fit in the trunk.

Didn't the Simpsons do that?

The thing with dry New England towns is that you hardly notice when you've left one and entered the next. It's not like the parts of the country where a dry town means the nearest bar is an hour away.

I think there is a dry county in Iowa IIRC

I propose everybody on the city council be doused in alcohol and set on fire until the law is changed
