Bloody Mary

Relief may be on the way for those who enjoy a mimosa or bloody mary with brunch or just like to get started early (we’re not judging).

The City of Orlando is considering allowing alcohol sales at restaurant, bars and liquor stores earlier on Sunday.

Currently you can buy alcohol starting at noon on Sunday within the City.

The proposal would move it to 9:00 a.m. This is still two hours later than every other day of the week.

The ordinance is being brought up for a first reading at today’s City Council meeting. The second reading would be December 9 and if passed would go into effect at the new year.

We’ll keep you posted on the progress of the proposed ordinance change.

Do you support changing the law?

  1. Jesus! Could the City of Orlando please join the rest of us in the 21st Century? Why the hell does one religious sect get to decide “morality” for the rest of us? What happened to separation of church and state Orlando?
    Particularly egregious is the undue influence the Baptist, Methodist, and Presbyterian churches downtown seem to have on City governance. Why are their outdated social codes always considered first when it comes to ordinances downtown? They’ve hindered Orlando’s growth in the past…let’s not let them do it now or in the future.
    The ordinance should begin alcohol sales the SAME time everyday. Crazier (more cosmopolitan) idea? Allow alcohol to be sold ANYTIME. No, that would probably make too much sense for this city.

  2. antiquated blue laws from another generation when Orlando was a very different place; about time (pun intended)

  3. It’s about time. Why should adults who don’t adhere to a particular religious belief have to follow that faiths rules? We are supposed to have a separation of church and state.

  4. I don’t understand — wouldn’t moving the time from noon to 9 AM essentially be a tacit admission that the law is, on some level, absurd? Why have two absurd laws? Make it the same every day. You know, so there’s only one absurd law.
