1. There's a drive through booze store off 17 92. Florida always does dumb things first.

And if not first, second.

16. There is a place in Tallahassee that has been open for at least fifty years - the Beer Barn

It's drive through - you drive in behind the building through a kind of tunnel, order your beer of choice and drive off with it. Ti's only a few blocks from the Florida State University campus.

I've never been to it - I don't like beer, but friends have told me how convenient it was during their college years.

2. North Carolina has cocktails to go but only because of the pandemic.

It will probably be going away soon.

8. It's actually pretty strict.

It has to be in the back of the car with lock. So trunk basically. I mean people buy beer at the store and that’s not even required to be in the trunk. Maybe it should be.

5. Louisiana used to have drive-thru daiquiri shops.

Somebody here on DU told me that they don't allow them anymore. It used to be nice to get a frozen margarita or a separator without having to get out of the car. I think I've seen a couple of places around here that have them now. I hope those people are just taking a sip or two on the way home.

9. James Lee Burke incorporated them into one of his novels.

(I will never pass up an opportunity to sing the praises of James Lee Burke, one of our greatest living story tellers.)

7. Easier to get alcohol, harder to vote.

Sounds reasonable to the average Fox watching cultist.

19. To clarify.

Easier to get alcohol a gun and stand your ground with impunity when you are white and harder to vote if you are a person of color.

Hm.

21. Exucse me?

Quit the snark?

We have been supporting all the local restaurants during the pandemic and tipping well. I see no need for drive through cocktails. It is a recipe for an accident waiting to happen.

13. Other states have done the same

Texas alcohol-to-go bill signed into law by Gov. Abbott
Jeremy Blackman, Austin Bureau
May 12, 2021

Texans are now permanently able to buy alcohol to go from restaurants under a law enacted Wednesday by Gov. Greg Abbott.

The measure allows beer, wine and cocktails to be included in pickup and delivery food orders. Restaurants began using the concept early in the pandemic to prop up drooping revenue, and it has gained rare bipartisan support among legislators this session.

“This new law will help businesses keep their doors open and ensure Texans keep their jobs,” Bentley Nettles, who heads the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission, said in a statement.

Texas is one of among nearly a dozen states that have legalized to-go alcohol sales during the pandemic. The state has been traditionally stringent on alcohol transactions, prohibiting purchases on Sunday mornings and imposing limits on distillery sales.

15. This is nothing

Other states have this, and our laws around alcohol are absurdly strict compared to other countries

Just because it's DeSantis, doesn't mean it's automatically evil

18. I mean...

You can go into just about any convenience or grocery store and buy a cold beer and for much cheaper than getting it to go from a restaurant. This is nothing to get outraged about. Just will increase revenue for struggling restaurants from people who decide to pay way more than necessary for a drink.

23. MO is pushing for permanent curbside drinks

We technically already had growlers. This allows for mixed drinks to be sold as long as they are in sealed containers.

I did it a few times last summer. It was nice buying a frozen margarita to take on a picnic with our meal and I didn't drink any more than I would have if we'd dined in at the local Mexican place.
