Pardon the very hairy hand, I’m Italian after all. We know it was coming, but most didn’t expect it to happen this quickly. Yes, Dannel Malloy, Governor of Connecticut, signed Sunday liquor sales into existence today. Starting this Sunday, 5/20/12, you’ll be able to buy liquor, beer, and wine at your favorite shops and you’ll also be able to buy beer at supermarkets. Sales on Sunday will be from 10 am to 5 pm. Also, according to The Republic, you’ll also be able to stock up for parties on Memorial Day, Independence Day, and Labor Day…plus the Mondays following any July 4th, Christmas, or New Year’s that happen to be on a Sunday. Another great tidbit to look out for according to NBC Connecticut: package stores can now sell fresh fruit for drinks, olives, cheese, and crackers. No whine with that cheese anymore! ;)
So, drink up, here’s to you Connecticut. We’ve earned it. I celebrated by popping open a Victory Golden Monkey, which also coincides with American Craft Beer Week. Coincidence? I think not!
How are you planning to celebrate this victory that so many have been dying for?
