If there's one occasion when everyone can agree that it's perfectly reasonable to start drinking before noon, it's almost certainly brunch. And yet, New York has long prohibited restaurants and bars across the state from selling alcohol before noon on Sundays -- that is, until now. Yes, that's right: booze, before noon, on Sundays. Finally.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Tuesday that state lawmakers have agreed to a deal that finally allows restaurants and bars to start serving alcohol at 10am on Sundays, one of several new reforms aimed at modernizing New York’s 80-year-old, buzz-killing Alcoholic Beverage Control Law. The new policy could take effect as early as this weekend, according to a report by The New York Post. In other words, you get two additional hours of drinking on Sundays, and well, your boozy Sunday Fundays will never be the same.
