Years ago the bars and stores could not open on Sundays. The sign just means that they can't open until those hours on Sunday, but you can buy beer any other day of the week and time. I think even today the bars can't open up until after 12:00 pm. Can't remember way, but I think it has to do with religion, but not sure. Maybe one of your other blogers might know. I know at one time the bars had to stop serveing liger at midnight and the bars had to close at 2:00 am. Not that I drink, but when I was younger I did go with friends and sip on cocacola. I was always the one that had to drive every one home.

OPPS! The word is liquor. :)


Hi Nick,

Hope you are well :) Just Sunday! I hope there are some good bars nearby ha ha!

I think they need to reword their sign a bit better dont they!

Clearly you need to stock up on Sunday!

We lived in Philadelphia for a couple of years in the 90s. No alcohol sold on Sundays, and the only places you could buy it (to take home, as opposed to at a bar or restaurant) were state stores. One store for wine and had liquor, another for beer. No way to buy a single beer, you had to buy a 6 pack. Oh, and you could buy beer and take it home from a bar. Weird regulations. They were called "blue laws" for some reason.

They've changed a bit in the last few years, but I think it's still illegal for car dealerships to be open on Sundays. Interesting, huh? Because God doesn't want you to buy a car on Sunday. Weird.
