    Well why not – there are liquor stores all around UP – including the Centennial on Preston which for all intents and purposes is IN UP!

    The change in the law still won’t allow liquor stores or stand alone bars–just sales of beer & wine in Tom Thumb and the elimination of the ridiculous private club law which doesn’t prevent liquor sales in restaurants, it just makes for a bunch of red tape for customers and businesses and makes the cost higher. Highland Park has always been wet and the entire city of Dallas is getting ready to be wet, which would leave UP as the only dry area for miles around and would cost UP merchant’s money. Come sign the petition at most Snider Plaza businesses including Bandito’s.

    The Texas precinct system for liquor sales stands almost alone as a monument to the impact of lobbyists over common sense. Can anyone with much history in Texas legislative sessions forget the liquor by-the-drink bill that, after going through committee, closed liquor stores an hour earlier and still prohibited LBTD sales?

    I couldn’t agree more with Suzanne Robertson. We might as well make UP wet, and have those sales taxes and business transactions staying in our city rather than going to other cities.

    There is nothing about this change that will negatively impact drinking habits or whether customers order drinks in restaurants or not.
