Agreed; that Tom Thumb is bone-dry. So is the Tom Thumb at Preston and Forest, a short drive from Addison, and the Whole Foods at the same intersection. I believe the Tom Thumb at Preston and Royal is also dry. The Super Wal-Mart at Montfort and Belt Line is dry too. The Kroger at Preston and Campbell is also dry.

Grocery stores in Richardson sell beer and wine. That's pretty much any grocery store in Richardson that is east of Coit Road. I don't know if Carrollton is wet or dry but FND seems to be totally dry.

I agree its freaking ridiculous. All it means is that people have to drive farther to get it. Just because they dont sell it in the area it doesnt mean the people are going to stop drinking.

I lived in Florida before Texas and we could buy liquor on any day until midnight and 10pm on Sundays. Beer was sold every day until 2am.

Down in Miami and the keys you can drink at a bar until 4am and some places are serving all night long.
