Historic Kentucky Eatery Set To Consider Alcohol Sales Sun, 04/8/12 1:37 PM (permalink)
The times are a changing in small towns all over Kentucky. The southeastern part of the state, long a redoubt of bootleggers and Baptist ministers and not coincidentally, historically dry-is rapidly becoming "moist" as in alcohol is allowed for sale by the glass in restaurants.
 
Little municipalities like Corbin and London are seeing an influx of chain restaurants like Applebees that formerly would have never considered opening because this revenue stream was closed to them.
 
Now Boone Tavern, a Roadfood favorite at 103 years old is considering alcohol sales. Good piece in the morning paper out of Lexington on the issue.
 
It seems silly for this to be a big deal but in Kentucky this is a white hot issue. Read the piece here http://www.kentucky.com/2...l-creates-dilemma.html
