I grew up in Indiana.
We had a weird law when it came to buying booze for carryout on Sunday – you couldn’t. Think about that. Wanna have a Sunday Funday at the house, but forgot the beer? Too bad. Well, change is coming.
According to USA Today, Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb will sign the bill legalizing Sunday alcohol sales for carryout in a ceremony to be streamed live Wednesday on Facebook, his office said.
Holcomb is scheduled to sign Senate Bill 1, which allows Sunday carryout sales between noon and 8 p.m. by grocers, convenience stores and liquor stores. The 1:30 p.m. ceremony will be streamed on the governor’s Facebook page.
The governor’s signature will put an immediate end to a ban on Sunday carryout alcohol sales, which dates to the aftermath of Prohibition’s repeal in 1933. That means Hoosiers will be able to begin buying carryout alcohol from retail stores this Sunday.
HAPPY SUNDAY FUNDAY!
