A bill to let people drink earlier on Sundays at restaurants just passed the general assembly, but it’s not a done deal.
If the governor signs the Mimosa or Brunch bill, which he’s expected to, it will be put to the voters in the form of a referendum. Essentially, it allows them to decide in every municipality whether they want to extend hours of restaurant liquor sales on Sundays.
Supporters of bill point to the four thousand or so Georgia restaurants expected to benefit. This would include about 25 thousand dollars in extra revenue per year if they’re allowed to serve alcohol at 11 a.m. instead of 12:30 p.m. on Sundays.
