Phyllis Kahn's Sunday liquor ban repeal quashed

Sorry folks, but it looks like we're all going to have to stick to Bloody Marys at the bar to curb that Sunday morning remorse.

A bill that would have allowed liquor stores in Minnesota to stay open on Sundays was shot down yesterday in a brutal 110-20 House vote.

The bill's author, Rep. Phyllis Kahn, DFL-Minneapolis, and like-minded legislators tried to make an argument for the free market in this one, but the critics feared it would be a detriment to already-struggling small businesses.

Oh well. There are some pretty killer Bloody Marys concocted around town. Check a out a few of our recommendations here.
