Atlanta begins New Year with Sunday Alcohol Sales!

I might just have to go out and get some today just because I can! Happy New Year!


"Ready to raise another toast to the new year?

That should be a little easier for residents of Atlanta, Kennesaw and Smyrna starting at 12:30 p.m. today, when Sunday alcohol sales will become legal in those cities.

The cities were among almost 50 metro-area jurisdictions whose citizens voted overwhelmingly in favor of buying booze on Sunday in a referendum on the Nov. 8 elections. Statewide, 128 cities voted and 105 of them said yes, according to the Georgia Food Industry Association."

1. All I can say is it is about time.

Georgia has finally entered into the 21st century and dispensed with those blue laws.

2. Yup!

I'm not a big drinker, it's more Separation of Church & State that I'm celebrating- Ga just got a little more Democratic!

I went out and bought a six pack on Sunday to commemorate the day.

3. Geez, finally!

I can drink to that!

My polling place is in a local Baptist church. I found it delicious that I got to vote "Yes" on Sunday alcohol sales there, of all places.
