Don't forget the blue laws

Must. Get. To. Wine. Store. Before. Sunday...

If I want to rebel against the blue laws and consume wine at dinner. This is a Bible Belt phenomenon I'm never going to get used to.


  1. Weirdly, in very religious right friendly SC, you can buy beer and wine in grocery stores on Sundays. Still no hard liquor on Sundays, but plenty of beer and wine.

  2. It makes no sense whatsoever. Lame. Lame. Lame. I wish they would put the issue on the ballot without having to get so many signatures. It shouldn't be harder to get on the ballot than a sales tax increase.

    Back when I lived in Benton County, we used to make a run to Missouri on Sundays. Only a 20 minute drive. (Why do I keep living in dry counties!!??)

    Even crazier - When I first moved to Arkansas in the early 90s, our local Kmart was still closed on Sundays. Then they started opening even on Thanksgiving, which forced the local Wal-Mart to open on Thanksgiving and then it all went downhill from there.
