Drunken driving is on the increase, so why not make it easier? of course, I'm being facetious. If they can't get enough by the legal hour, maybe they'll soger up before thet head for home.

The only thing worse than taking peoples money is taking their money when you KNOW they won't even remember playing it come morning. Extending drinking hours simply means fleecing more drunks for their cash.......sad, sad, sad.

Let the casinos serve drinks until whatever time they want is fine. But then you have to let bars serve drinks until the same time or the casinos get a competitive advantage. As far as drunks driving in ct .08 is to low of a limit. MADD is a terrorist organization. .12 is a more realistic limit. One beer or one glass of wine should not be DUI but it very well can be in this state.

How about if Overnight guests of the Casinos show their room card and then they can get drinks after 1/2 AM if they want it but if you dont have a card you dont get the drink after 1/2 AM

The Tribes will funnel enough cash into the pockets of our lawmakers and it will get done. After all, the lawmakers don't have to worry about DUI's and not only that, extended hours + more unhappy drunks = more DUI arrests. JACKPOT!!!!

It's not like they couldn't go to their rooms and drink anything in the mini bar... Very good idea you have here, it would also increase hotel revenues...

I remember going there when the place first opened, a lot of people around here thought that was one of the things they were allowed to do. Sovereign Nation should imply not having to abide by regional blue laws as most see it...
