Sunday Sales Approved in Lexington

Lexington sits on the edge of Bourbon Country in the heart of Kentucky. You would think you could get a drink almost any time, any where that you would like. That's not the case, but it will get easier come Dec. 16.

The Urban County Council approved a measure this week that will allow consumers to buy bottles of wine, liters of gin and six-packs of beer on Sundays, the first time by-the-drink and packaged alcohol has been available in most locations in Fayette County on Sundays.

Consumers used to have to go to a restaurant with more than 100 seats that had food sales of more than 50 percent of total revenue, a hotel, convention center or race track to get a glass of beer, wine or spirits.
