If you’ve ever gone out for a Sunday Brunch craving a Bloody Mary — especially at restaurants with those amazing Bloody Mary bars, like Freight Kitchen & Tap and Elevation Chophouse — the “wait til 12:30″ deal may be over!
The Georgia Restaurant Association is courting support for HB 535, the Georgia Brunch Bill, which would give municipalities the option of permitting restaurants to serve alcohol as early as 10:30 a.m. on Sundays. According to the GRA website:
Each restaurant that can sell alcoholic beverages in Georgia will generate an average of $480.77, or $25,000 per year. There are roughly 4,000 restaurants in Georgia that could benefit from this bill, which would mean a total of $100 million in additional revenue. These changes will help drive jobs, tourism and economic growth in our state.
