If you’re planning to ring in the New Year with a champagne toast, you’ll have to settle for apple cider if you haven’t stocked up by now.
While Texas liquor stores are regularly closed on Sundays, the 2022/2023 New Year’s holiday falls over the weekend. According to Texas law (backed by the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission), if the holiday falls on a Sunday, liquor stores must close the following Monday.
This downtime provides nearly three days of rest from the busy holiday season, allowing liquor store employees a consecutive 61-hour break, and much needed time off via a schedule that only happens every few years.
As with any holiday, be sure to drink responsibly to prevent accidents, or schedule a designated driver to avoid a DWI.
A big THANK YOU to our supporters:
The Hull Creative Arts Foundation and the Lampier Family.
