From NY1.com

A new state law is in effect Sunday that allows stores to start selling beer at 8 a.m., instead of waiting until noon.
The old rule was part of the state's so-called blue laws. Lawmakers say the change will make it easier for those who are traveling, among others.
Before 2003 stores couldn't sell liquor on Sundays at all.

Thank god. It was always such a hassle to wait until noon. Now everyone can get tanked up on the WAY to church, not just on the return trip! Nyc is so great.

Um... why can't they buy their alcohol at their destination? Sounds like they WANT people to drink and drive.

Yeah, that line of reasoning is really weird. It almost sounds like someone forgot to proofread the statement before it went out.

For all those people that are awake at 8 am on a Sunday?

I'm almost always up by 5:30am, but I'm much more interested in coffee than beer at that hour!

So this is only for bear, not alchol in general? The plus side would be so restuarants can open for brunch earlier. We're early risers and it can be a real pain sometimes finding a place to eat that's open. Our choices are very limited.

Brunch... hmm. Hadn't thought of that, but would it still be brunch at 8am or just breakfast with booze? :)

The part that really kills me though is that the logic is to make it convenient to grab your beer and jump in the car and get an early start...

It's all brunch on the weekends I guess, even at 8:00 in the morning ;-)

Yeah, I wish sometimes that there were more options before 12. You get pretty sick of the options pretty quickly.
