oh you oldie!!! nowadays, many clubs stay open even if they aren't serving booze just so people can hang and dance. But I'm with you, hook up or go home!

Because the last call in Fulton and Dekalb county is 4. Dekalb was trying to pull it back to 2 but I'm not sure how that worked out.

Utah is 1am guys, sorry. Plus the state run liquor/wine stores close nightly around 8 i think, and are closed Sundays and all major state holidays. People that are hearty to party, drive carpools (I imagine there's a DD) to Wendover, Nevada, 90 minutes away, which is 24/7, liquor/wine in grocery stores, etc.

In a club, the lights all go bright at 12.57 (or so) am, so bartenders/wait staff can pick up the goods! At least the liquor stores in CO are open Sundays now.

I'm guessing that none of that has to do with the main religion there? Kind of like my comments about Minnesota's liquor laws and store hours which sound very similar...LOTS of Lutherans there. Maybe I'm wrong but I doubt it. Another reason for religion to stay out of state affairs, if you don't want to drink...don't do it, if you need state and local laws to keep you from doing something then you need medical help.

I spent a summer in a small MN town bordering Wisconsin...the bars in the MN town closed at 1AM so there was then a mass drunken migration across the Mississippi River to the bars in WI to drink for another hour, then another even more-so drunken mass migration BACK in to MN. Tell me that is intelligent

Barely. They ***** about having to do so and wonder why grocery stores who are open for longer and normal hours will one day gain the ability to sell beer wine and liquor.

The real question though -- why in a country with a supposed seperation of church and state -- do we have the stupid ****ing christian laws of stupidity.

That is one thing I really miss about Louisiana, being able to pick up my beer while doing the grocery shopping or at a gas station on my way to a BBQ or something while I fill up the gas tank...I don't drink wine very often and I avoid hard liquor like the plague.

Because we elect people in to power who push their own religious agenda or succumb to the lobbying of religious groups Like I said, they need someone to control themselves and if they can't have it they don't want anyone else to either. Bottom line, religion is not necessary to have morality AND morality can NOT be legislated (apparently contrary to popular belief).

On the other hand steve, it could be worse...we could be subject to Sharia law, would be much worse for women than men but I think both sexes would have issues with it.

Maybe I should shut up now as this could get ugly real quick lol.

That's not how it is in every state. The New York State law, for example, sets last call at no later than 4:00 AM. Though I think some cities within NY may set it earlier, there are at least some (Albany, I know for certain) where bars/clubs stay open and serving until 4:00 AM.
