Why can't restaurants in Marianna serve wine other than Madison's? I'm sure Ruby Tuedays and Beef o Brady's would generate more revenue if they did as well.

They could if they want to, they evidently there isn't enough profit in it to maintain the stock and selection. But you can bet if thee was a big enough demand they would. Their COP licenses cover it.

In response to your question there is not a lot of profit in wine. People want it really cheap or they wonít buy it. Itís another thing that you have to order and inventory. You have to buy wine glasses. They are easily broken. It requires another cooler that takes up space and eats electricity. The bottom line is that there is not enough profit in selling it or they would.

I disagree. Most people expect to pay if they're ordering wine. Red wine doesn't require refrigeration and white wine can be stored in a basic refrigerator or beer cooler. Also, glass is inexpensive.

The city changed the verbage in the ordinances regarding the sale of fermented vs distilled beverages. The county never followed suit. Simple as that.

They need to change the ordinance and allow liquor by the glass, but your county commissioners are too ballless to allow that to happen.

The last effort was pure ridiculous, and ended up with money being wasted by people who weren't really working that hard to get the word out.

It's just plain stupid that I can go to a liquor store and but it by the gallon and drink all I want, yet I cant go into a restaurant and have a drink with my dinner.

How long will this town and county stay ass backwards?

You bunch of country hicks........it's 2012. Let people have a drink with dinner. I can't believe some cable network hadn't started filming a show here to highlight how retarded you people are.

Course you dumbasses would turn it down like you do any other kind of outside offers. Never seen a place with such retarded "leaders" who would rather keep you oppressed so they can "be prominent" and then you all keep them in office and let them keep you oppressed.

We need to remember that laws are only good if they are enforced. We currently have a sheriff that is willing to turn a blind eye. Liquor laws in this county do not apply to certain folks. If one restaurant is allowed to serve liquor then every restaurant should be given the same opportunity.

Another cooler? For wine? Wine is not supposed to be cold...There's plenty of profit in wine. I've been out in California long enough to see it. Very cheap in bulk and can be sold at a moderate price(4.50 or so a glass). As far as wine glasses go, those are fairly cheap also when bought in bulk. Wine is generally more profitable than beer.
really?

I find it funny how everybody is acting like they can run a business. Beefs and Tuesdays aren't in the city limits so the new ordinance doesn't cover them. Jackson county doesn't allow the sale of liquor or both places would.

Why donít you talk to the folks at the Elks Club. It is real profitable for them. They sell it, along with beer and liquor, by the gallons and still go in the hole every month and are about broke. Of course when you have an arrogant idiot running customers off that doesnít help.

Elks club is that. A club. Private. Different than a restaurant open to every one.

Who cares. IF you want to drink alcohol then take it with you and add it to your drink. Sometimes I wonder who reall makes all these laws here in good ole Marianna. I used to go to church. I still believe in my GOd. But half the church drinks. smokes. cusses. and runs around with who ever they can. So it doesnt really matter if you area goody two shoes or not. Just dont get caught It is ashamed that everyone in this town has to know everyone elses business. Just ask someone at 7 in the morning a question on the east end of marianna and someone on the west end of marianna will know what was said by 7:15 that morning. just saying

Doesnít matter if it is private or not they still have to be licensed. Just because they are a club doesnít give them the right to violate Florida statutes and sell alcohol without a license. It is also morally wrong to hide behind a national organizations name and do it. A business in a local town was busted for selling to minors but this place sells and doesnít even have a license.
Florida Statutes apply to everyone. I would suggest that you read the statutes for yourself.
