Can you buy alcohol?

Laws here dictate liquor stores close at 9pm and aren't open at all on Sunday. Beer and wine can only be purchased between 7am and midnight. I end up waiting outside the store for 7 to roll around. The hours restrictions suck sometimes.

I forgot. Turns out you can't buy any alcohol before noon on Sunday too. That one got me recently. I thought I was good. But it was 7am on Sunday.

I'm kind of a lush, but I've never been outside a store waiting to buy liquor. I don't even know what the restrictions are here. *shrugs*

Dude why are you at the door 7 am waiting to buy alcohol? Sounds like a drinking problem. Buy what you want during the day or on Saturday if its liquor.

I know you can't buy it after midnight here but never tried to buy alcohol first thing in the morning so I have no idea.

I work nights. And I do my grocery shopping between 2-4am when y kids are in bed and I'm done cleanig the house. The days I'm off and awake during the day I don't leave the house if I can help it. I don actually buy alcohol very often. But when I want a beer before be its a last minute decision and 7am is on my way to bed. But I get to the store around 6:50am. So I wait if I have the time.
Not everyone's on the same schedule.

And yes Texas. I just thought of this because I got off work early tonight. But it's 3am so if I didn't have this lonely left over beer from last week I wouldn't have one.
