Dallas Is Now a Whole Lot Wetter
For the hell of it, I ran a Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission report this morning to see how the off-premise beer-and-wine permitting process was going -- seeing as how on New Year's Eve, only a handful of applicants could sell spirits in formerly dry parts of town. And as you'll see from the report on the other side, the city is slowly but very surely getting wet -- all the way from the Tom Thumb in Preston Royal Shopping Center to the Kroger at E. Northwest Highway and Plano Road. And: the 7-Eleven at Forest and Marsh Lanes, which, had it gone wet back in 1986, would have spared my brother from having to buy his beer at jacked-up prices out of Robbie Van Winkle's trunk.
