Excellent heads-up here! Fascinated looking over this area:

Jimmy Buffett always makes me think of one of my other favorite places in that area: Lulu's (owned by Jimmy Buffett's sister), though I haven't been since they moved from their little shack on Week's Bay.

Both Poke and Arag deserve some credit here. I had to go into Wikipedia to research, and the findings are very interesting:

Yeah, MO is almost as open as it gets with liquor, probably 3rd most lenient including absinthe, no happy hour limits, no dry counties, 3AM liquor licenses in KC/STL. Parents are allowed to give children booze in MO. KC ignored The Prohibition afterall - we like our booze. KS is not nearly as strict as they used to be, depends on county. NY, PA and WA have strict laws - can't buy hard booze in a grocery store or even wine in some states.

You can't buy booze in KS grocery stores either, right? That's why they all have a little attached liquor store. Or has that changed?

Illinois has to be up there with leniency too. Not only does Chicago have a lot of bars that stay open as late as 5 a.m. on Saturday nights, the state also has the only 24-hour bar I've ever had the pleasure to come across, Pop's on St. Louis' east side.

^The Foundation near 18th/Vine is still grandfathered in with no liquor limit since it existed well before the Prohibition. I think it's 120 years old. They still do Fri/Sat night jam sessions until dawn. Doesn't open until about midnight or so.

Mutual Musicians Foundation Inc - 18th & Vine - Kansas City, MO

Edit: KS allows beer in grocery stores. Some KS counties are pretty strict but other states ever stricter overall was my point. In NY, beer cannot be sold in a liquor stores only markets yet markets can't sell wine/spirits - bizarre.

There's a kind of famous bar in Copperhill, Tennessee called Pat's (I think) that straddles the state line to Georigia. The Georgia side is in a dry county.You have to leave your beer on a little table in Tenessee to go to the restroom in Georgia.
