That's pretty much the law I'm referring to.

In PA you can either be a Beer Distributor which can sell beer by the case...


Or you can be a bar and/or restaurant that is allowed to sell a "max" of 196oz to a person (at a time).

We are starting to see the occasional grocery store which sells beer, but they are all using a restaurant license that allows them to sell to-go beer.

One of my favorite travel/life commentary authors is Bill Bryson. In one of his books (I think it was "I'm a Stranger Here Myself") he describes taking road trips with his family when he was a kid growing up in Iowa back in the 50's. He talked about how you'd drive along and there would be a sign saying something like "atomic rock! Only 100 miles!" and then another sign "Atomic Rock! See it Glow! Only 75 miles!" Now you don't even have that to entertain you!

Once, I got off the Penna Pike in Breezewood - thinking it would be "something"...imagine my surprise!

Why do you think South of the Border is still so popular?

Either way... The bar is open even if the bartender isn't around. We also have a few people around here who enjoy mixing up drinks for our new members.

My bartender senses were tingling! lol. *passes out a round of Long Islands and a bottle of rum for the pyrate* Welcome to all the newbies! I am your friendly neighborhood bartender/gypsy. lmao. Those that have known me for awhile know I move around. A LOT. I'm hoping to settle down somewhere soon though. Who knows where it'll be though.

As the Pyrate put so well we did get an apartment after a few weeks of being homeless(long story that I'd rather not get into in public) and I've finally found a job after over a month of looking. Sadly, it only lasts until January. I am alive and well here in the middle of nowhere in Eastern Idaho somewhere. Not exactly sure where but there's mountains, trees, and cattle. LOTS of cattle. And the occasional drunk lady riding a horse through town and no, that is not a joke.

I'm sucking up my 3G bandwidth to check in so I'm gonna make it short. The internet company wants a LOT of money to get internet started sooooo I won't have any until sometime next month. I may be able to check in every now and again when I stea....errr permanently borrow wifi bandwidth from somewhere.

DC-I am still alive and well. You could always have your DF check up on me ya know. Not like she isn't on my FB page.

Anyways, that's it from me for now. Gotta get off here before I suck up all my data for the month Help yourselves to the bar folks and again, welcome to all the newbies!

First time posting in this thread (Hi all!) but just had to chime in about stupid PA liquor laws LOL. Sunday I had to make a quick jaunt over the state line because I got home late and realized I needed supplies for White Russians & the state stores were already closed. Boo.

Visitors to the area are always perplexed when I try to explain that you have to go to 2 different types of stores if you're looking to purchase both beer and liquor LOL.

Silly laws.

Most liquor stores are closed all day on Sundays. Certain ones were given permission but not all, gotta love state stores.

Scranton is the "big" city near me and they don't have a liquor store open on Sundays you have to go to Clarks summit which is a nearby town

Although I live in PA, I've been blessed to live near a great craft beer store. Since they also see hoagies and cheese steaks, they're able to sell six packs to go and even mix/match bottles to build your own 6 or 12 pack. They're also open 365 days a year til midnight.

So, I know I said I would take over the planning duties for the meet in October. But it looks like I MIGHT have to back out. I know I posted a few months ago about me dislocation my knew. Well, since then I have had it dislocated 4 times. Twice for no reason at all. I am going to see a specialist on Wednesday to see about surgery since he thinks I might have torn something. If I need surgery, I probably wont' be coming to the meet let alone plan it.

Right now it's all up in the air, but I wanted to give a heads up
