I know this is a stupid question , but I'll be coming through West Memphis at about 6:00 a.m. on my way camping. Can you buy beer that early in West Memphis, AR? I know it's cheaper there than in Memphis, but I don't want to wait, stop there and not be able to buy it, and then end up in dry counties along the way where it would be impossible to buy it anyway.

Thanks!

I would be very surprised if you're going to find a 6 A.M.'er, but Broadway Street would probably be your best bet.

I would probably call the chamber of commerce and make inquiries/get leads.

I'm sure there's some 6:00 bars...maybe find one that sells package.

Its illegal to sale beer in the State of AR before 7am and after a certain time, I forget, I think its 12am during the week and 1am on the weekend. Unless its a private club or bar, those I dont know about.
