In response to Buffalo Bills football, a western NY lawmaker has proposed getting rid of the long obsolete prohibition on the sale and serving of alcoholic beverages prior to noon on Sundays.
During a recent Bills game from London, restaurants and bars in the Queen City were unable to entertain fans on Sunday morning.
Routinely, restaurants wanting to serve brunches and mimosas either have to turn away customers or look the other way, a risky course of action in "if you hear something, say something" America.
The Legislature would do well to roll back the ban to match the 8AM on the other days.
A few years back stores were allowed to sell beer and wine before noon after pressure from campers, boaters and golfers.
Obviously the ban is a post Prohibition tip of the hat to churches, who perhaps felt it would be unfair competition. Not so. My experience is faith and the Devil's Brew are not mutually exclusive.
