Default You cannot buy beer in Virginia after 12:00

I didn't know this until I went to the grocery store and tried to buy some at 12:08.



I haven't had a beer in about a month.


This really sucks.

If you can't buy beer in Virginia, drive across the Potomac and get some here in Maryland.

So there are no time laws there?

I would hate to have to cross the Woodrow Wilson bridge, risk ending up in Oxon Hill and live through Judgement Night if the liquor stores are all closed.

In the UK you can't buy it before 11am in pubs not sure about shops, And you can't buy it in pubs or shops after 11pm.

Which sucks if you fancy having a party or night cap after 11.

It's like that here in TexAss no sales after 12am. And on Sundays no sale before 12pm. Something to do with all the God fearing people.

This is why California is so messed up. You can buy liquor at all hours of the day or night. If you want your state to be messed up like California, then try to get legislation passed to legalize buying booze at all hours. Freedoms always carry a price.

I live in a dry county. meaning no purchase of alcoholic beverages on sundays. Bars close, and stores won't sell it.

In NY the liquor stores were closed on sundays. And the 12pm sunday rule was in effect.
Here in Tampa it was 1pm but they bumped it down to 11am sundays (I think).
