If you've been frustrated about the fact that you can't buy wine & liquor on Sundays in the volunteer state, you're not alone.
I can’t buy wine on Sunday’s and that’s prolly become my least favorite thing about living in Tennessee— Erin Kabbes (@e_kabbs) March 5, 2018
Tennessee liquor laws are stupid so Kyle and I are driving to Kentucky to buy champagne 😂— Whitney (@ohhiwhit) March 25, 2018
...but take heart, rosé lovers!
A bill that is set to change that just passed by a 55-35 vote in the Tennessee House. The bill would allow liquor stores to be open from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. and for grocery stores to sell wine on Sundays. [But an amendment added to it would prohibit wine & liquor sales on Easter, Thanksgiving, and Christmas -- so stock up if you need to before those holidays.]
The Tennessee Senate is set to vote on the bill April 11.
Drink responsibly, folks!
