The idea is that whatever you can order off the menu at the restaurant, is what you should be able to order to go…and that includes alcohol.
When the pandemic started, rules changed for “to go” orders and they allowed for sealed alcoholic beverages to be ordered, well, they want to keep that going to help restaurants.
The legal mumble jumble is this: the Senate Regulated Industries Committee became the first legislative panel to support this, which was put into law by Gov. Ron DeSantis that allows restaurants to include alcoholic drinks or bottles as part of take-home meals.
They would cap individual container sizes at 32 ounces and require motorists to place the drinks in locked compartments, vehicle trunks or in areas behind the last upright seats in vehicles.
So….booze to go! It’s going to help so many struggling restaurants!
