It’s a momentous day for Connecticut, which began selling liquor on Sundays as of today.
We didn’t think it’d be that big of a deal for us. After all, we live within walking distance of the Massachusetts border, and Mass. ended their blue laws eight years ago. If we found ourselves low on beer or in search of a wine to go with Sunday dinner, it was never an issue.
But, excitement was building, and Rob suggested we patronize a Connecticut liquor establishment Sunday – just because we could.
On our way to Lost Acres Vineyard, we stopped at Big Y for some picnic supplies (cheese, bread, grapes) and I made a beeline for the beer aisle – JUST to see the six-packs pictured above liberated from the ugly gray tarps that normally shroud them on Sundays.
And as we left the vineyard, Rob decided he wanted to participate in the festivities. We stopped at a package store in Granby and bought local, choosing a six-pack of Hartford’s City Steam Naughty Nurse.
