Ah, you reminded me of what part of the dark ages we were in for the longest time. Beer and liquor stores, as well as bars, were closed Sundays up until about two years ago. Only place you could drink was in a restaurant or at a sporting event (football, baseball, hockey, horse racing). Used to be pretty funny to see the lineups at 1:55 am at the beer stores on Saturday night. Bunch a drunks making darn sure they had more for the next day.
