Drinking alcohol on Sunday just got easier

For those of you who can't wait till noon for a drink at your local eatery, good news. A new law goes into effect this weekend. You will be able to order a drink at 10AM.

This move is intended to help the restaurant business and proponents claims millions in tax revenue from just two hours of drinking on Sunday.

I doubt very much, the two extra hours will mean that much more in revenue for the State. Extra hours of drinking will not serve our communities and just give more excuses for drinking and driving.

well Anon.... it means if you are out for breakfast... you can order a drink.

The revenue here in Framingham, since we have so many restaurants, could be in the thousands...

and you may even see or here about more drunk driving accidents by noon on Sundays, on your way back from church.

Anyone who does not think this is going to have some impact on them is completely out of touch. This will impact all of us in some way I am sure, and not all of the impacts will be good ones.
