I wandered around HEB for about 30 minutes looking for the liquor section before I finally asked someone..... That's definitely something new for us California transplants. I felt so funny coming out of the liquor store with my brown paper bag!

Honey, Texas is just as much the South as is it is the West. There are still many counties throughout the state that are completely or partially dry. Dry counties in Texas - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

However, the tradition of blue laws applies not only to alcohol but many other types of sales.
”In Texas, for example, blue laws prohibited selling housewares such as pots, pans, and washing machines on Sunday until 1985. In Texas, Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Louisiana, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin, car dealerships continue to operate under blue-law prohibitions in which an automobile may not be purchased or traded on a Sunday. In some cases these laws were created or retained with the support of those whom they affected, to allow them a day off each week without fear of their competitors still being open."

Man, I used to hate the Blue Laws when I was a kid. I remember when the malls actually started opening on Sunday. You couldn't even buy a toy at Albertsons. Truly a Dark Age for all Mankind.
