"There are many of the young people in our state as well as around the country who seem not to be taking the virus as seriously as they should," he said.

If you allow your bars and restaurants to reopen too early, you might not be taking the virus as seriously as you should, dumbass.

I've banned sales of macadamia nuts before noon.  Should have a roughly equal effect.

Think about it. It's 3am on a Friday night. The modmins are hammered by now. The only reason this article made it to any tab is because it's in favor of alcohol. Just be glad you get to read the article and have another drink.

Can the bar charge a fee for "free" drinks after 10:59?

This is typical of how McMaster has handled the pandemic... half-measure after half-measure and focusing on the wrong things. He refuses to mandate mask usage statewide (as noted in TFA, saying its 'unenforceable') and has taken the re-closing of businesses off the table (ergo this "11pm" nonsense - this is his half-measure of "closing without closing").

You'll note he doesn't mandate that bars close at 11pm, just they can't serve alcohol past 11pm ... there's nothing in the order preventing someone from buying a dozen shots at 10:59pm and hanging out until the wee hours.

The thing is - I would think this 11pm nonsense would be just as "unenforceable" as mask usage. Yet you see what he chose to focus on.

Place near me did that.  ABC rules say that a place has to make a certain percentage of its sales as food or it has to get some other license.

So the owner made a rule that any beer purchase had to be accompanied by the purchase of "(A) (B)loody (C)herry" (he was Brit by birth) for like $1.

The order does not apply to alcohol sold at convenience stores, grocery stores, wine and liquor stores and retail businesses.

Convenience stores, grocery stores, wine and liquor stores and retail businesses welcome their new late night customers.

My friends used to be in a band that was fairly popular in my hometown. When they would play a few bars our group would crowd in and make a generally wildly profitable night for that bar. A few of them would let us party until morning as a sort of thank you. After 2 am they can't legally charge anything for drinks, so we would throw them cash to cover part of it and they worked it out however they needed to.

Bars and clubs tend to get crowded between 11-2 (or whatever time they close). This is a weak attempt at reducing the threat. Closing bars and restaurants would be the responsible thing, but....SC.

People should be drinking at home, alone, and in the dark.  Like god intended.  If you need light, it should come from an old tube TV tuned to a channel with static noise.  Clubs and bars are for people who are not confident in their drinking and need others to encourage them.  They are an abomination.  Real drinkers have confidence in their ability to get the job done by themselves.

With all those exemptions we are able to find that one targeted establishment - - you'll need Google maps to find it and it's actually in North Carolina.

This isn't even about alcohol. It's about letting weirdo extroverts mix their slime trails.

"The executive order does apply to any holder of the following licenses: On-Premises Beer and Wine Permit, Winery Permit, Brewpub Beer/Wine Permit, Brewery  Permit, Business Liquor by the Drink License, Non-Profit Private Club Liquor by the Drink License, Special Event Permit, or Special Non-Profit Event Permit.

The order does not apply to alcohol sold at convenience stores, grocery stores, wine and liquor stores and retail businesses."


I bet he thinks he actually accomplished something with this.

"McMaster called it "a very strong order" and a statewide mandate. It will remain in effect until further notice."

Yes. Yes he does, that dumbass.

The horse got out of its stall a week ago.  Let's partially close the stall door now.

It's pretty much everyone for themselves now.  There's no leadership, there's no accountability and the time for action was half a year ago.

Millenials are starting to come in at 40 years old now. They are the lion's share of every firefighter, soldier, nurse, etc etc.... we hear 'No' plenty. What pisses off the Boomer establishment is that we are finally starting to say it back.

If you don't require people going out to wear mask, you might be the problem.

I object to your statement. It assumes the modadmins are sober some of the time, there are no facts in evidence to back this claim up!

Possibly by population density. But you are too stupid to understand that.
