re: #274 Cannadian Club Akbar

I’ve been to 24 hour bars when I live in the Ft. Lauderdale area. Also used to go to one that closed at 6AM and reopened at 7AM. I love Florida.

Germany has very strict laws about all stores closing on Sunday, which started out as a religious thing but has been embraced as a matter of workers’ rights and protecting the family.

But there are dozens of exemptions (bakeries can be open for three hours, gas stations can sell “travel requisites”, such as beer, schnapps, snacks and small items, tourist areas can get an exemption, and cities can declare up to four “open Sundays” a year, usually in conjunction with some town festival, etc…)

I find it all rather silly, but I’ve learned to live with it.

And nobody can be prevented from drinking or even making hooch in their own homes or at a private location, it’s just that communities do have the right to regulate the sale and public consumption of intoxicating beverages.
