So we voted for no more "dry" areas in Dallas. Way to go! Now some decent grocers will come to Oak Cliff, and there will be no more "private club" memberships and unicard BS. Way to go, this has been around since prohibition!
For those of you worried about more homeless, uhh, they were already here.
Its about time.
I live in New Orleans now, where you can do just about anything with alcohol except drive, but living in Dallas I used to always get bummed out about the times you could/couldn't buy alcohol and the remote areas that sold liquor.
If there is enough money in it, you can bet a city will accept it. Just look at the new toll booths on the Dallas North Tollroad. Does anyone on here remember when the tollroads were originally proposed, they were funded with revenue muni bonds, with the promise that the tolls would exist only until it was built??? Funny how that changed. Now they're building more. Consider how much 1 tollbooth raises in one day. No to mention they've laid off all the tellers, so it's mostly all profit.
