Louis, you put a post up, saying that Adam's Mark was being sticky
about "dress code" for their bar. Can you enlarge on that? And
another question, Mel mentioned something about liquor in rooms being
a problem. How restrictive are the liquor laws in N.C.? Is
wine/beer/liquor served in the restaurants?, are their
wine/beer/liquor stores around?
Meticulously loose Liz
Got my propane, still masses of snow. Went to a Maple Sugar Festival
this morning, had pancakes, sausages, and syrup. Went on a horse
drawn sleigh ride through the snow, hiked on snow covered trails,
feeling like it was Christmas instead of Spring.

you've hit on a subject that i can help with. likker laws in north carolina
are pretty strange, i think - you have to buy whisky and other liquors from
state run "ABC" stores. they close early - some as early as 7 p.m. while
some others stay open until 9 p.m. beer and wine can be bought in grocery
stores, gas stations, etc. from about 6 a.m. until 1 or 2 a.m. all these
schedules are for monday through saturday. sunday is an entirely different
story ... ABC stores are closed all day, and you can't buy beer or wine until
church lets out which is assumed to be around noon.
wine, liquor, and beer are served in most of the nicer restaurants, beer and
wine in some others, and then there are some that don't serve any of the
i don't know what mel was talking about on the liquor in the rooms thing.
some rooms have mini bars but they charge a lot and you should take your own
stash so you don't get ripped off. there is no problem in any motel/hotel
that i've ever heard of that cares what you drink in your room.
"walkers" generally are not allowed unless there is a street festival or
something going on. and they don't like it at all if you drink and drive.
come on down, enjoy yourself - it's really not all that foreign here.

Don't know for sure exactly what the problem was for mel, but I suspect the
hotel wants to make a buck and dinna want to let us BYOB in the room.
That's just my suspicion, and mel will confirm or deny as he chooses.
In NC you can't buy liquor in the grocery store. You have to go to the ABC
store. Only beer and non-fortified wines are sold at the grocery. You
can't carry alcohol inside the passenger section of the car unless it's
sealed - hafta put it in the trunk. If you buy enough liquor for a large
party, you might have to get a special permit to carry that much alcohol in
your car. If you are under 30 years old, don't come down here without your
picture ID; they check 'em for cigarettes and alcohol both.

If I did I don't remember a post about a dress code in bars, maybe it was someone
else. I remember beer and wine being available. I don't drink much.
I dress like I spell.
