Poll: Should Booze Be Sold on Sundays?
With the NFL season in full swing, we're wondering how Minnesotans feel about the fact that liquor isn't available seven days a week.
The big game is starting in a few hours and you're having a bunch of friends over, so you head to Costco for a bottle of tequila and a 24-pack of Stella.
Oops. Not if it's a Sunday and you're in Minnesota. If you didn't plan ahead, you're stuck making the trip to Wisconsin, or organizing an alcohol-related potluck. Or, horror of horrors, getting through the game without "adult beverages."
The nonpartisan House Public Information Services Office conducted its 2012 opinion poll during this year's State Fair, and one of the questions concerned whether Minnesota liquor stores should be allowed to stay open on Sundays.
More than 9,000 people participated, and quite a majority (63 percent) answered 'yes.'
We're wondering what our readers think. Should Sunday remain liquor-free, at least for retailers? Or is this a vestige of Prohibition, long overdue for change? Please vote in our poll, and explain your feelings in the comments below.
