Plan ahead and stock up.
I'd rather save gas and money and make the food and beer run at the same time. Plus i won't know what kind of beer i'm feeling like until that day.

Why do we need alcohol sales on Sunday anyways? Can't you stock up for your games on Sat? Is it that big a deal you have to go to a sports bars for beer and a game? The thing is, is keeping drunks off the road etc etc. I have no problem with a total ban on all alcohol sales on Sunday period. You have 6 other days to kill your liver. Leave Sunday out of it.
And yes I do enjoy a cold beer now and then, usually at home.
Why pick sunday, what makes sunday so different from any other day? Is it the presumption that its a holy day? I'd rather ban liqour on tuesday then sunday.

I used to live in Charleston, South Carolina, and you could not legally get any alcohol at all at any time on Sundays. The tourists there did not have much of an issue with it.
One restaurant we went to would give you a little something potent in a china teacup if you ordered the "Skipper Tea" on Sunday. Felt like a speakeasy.

Interesting argument against changing the time to earlier in the morning as it's too early to be serving alcohol on a Sunday morning... yet if you drink communion wine in church on Sunday morning you are paying testament to the lord...
What if the restaurants served those stale little crackers with the Mimosas and called it a "communion brunch"? OR-
What if we joined the 21st Century and got rid of ridiculous blue laws altogether?
This goes back to when the churches didn't want soda shops to serve sodas on Sunday. They figured the kids should be in church instead of hanging out there. That is the reason the icecream "sunday" was invented. True story. One more blue law that has no good reason to exist

What's up with governing the hours that you sell alcohol or anything else? If people want to drink themselves away, let them.

People in NM are not grown up enough to know when to buy alcohol? People in NM are not mature enough to not run red lights, so we have red light cameras? People in NM are not independent enough to earn their own money, so we have tons of welfare, food stamps (ebt) and medicaid.

I hear all these good things about this governor that the state has, but what is she doing about all the poverty here? The state ranks 48th or 49th in the nation on education. The unemployment rate here is phenominal.

Instead of Susana, the city council and the mayor wasting time on stupid crap like telling the citizens whne they can wipe their butts, they need to focus on the real problems. This is a shit poor state and they are worried about selling alcohol at appropriate times?

This is a crap hole place with no industry, no jobs, poor education and poor infrastructure with insane tax rates. Get rid of these politicians that are trying to hold your hand to go to the bathroom.

Oh no - all these years and people have been
going without champagne at 11 AM on a Sunday
at Brunch.

OMG - this is a social ill that should have been
corrected 100 years ago.

Forget it - if can't people wait another hour
to get a drink then maybe they need to look
over their life situation and make a change.

Stop laying down laws that don't matter. Exactly, it doesn't matter when people can drink or not. To hell with drinking. We pay these losers to govern and pass laws that will help the community. I could care less about alcohol. I am more concerned abotu cutting out all the handouts.

Get these clowns to figure out how we get 60 percent of las cruces off of welfare, housing, child support, WiC, foodstamps, medicaid and off to work. Work, work, work.
