Check out this great article from Time Magazine on Blue Laws: Liquor Laws Make Valentine’s Day Blue

From the story:

“For the first time in more than a decade, Feb. 14 is falling on a Sunday — and that means in 14 states and hundreds of cities and counties across the U.S., liquor laws could be hampering toasts — and sales.”

Thing is, it’s not just Valentine’s Day either.  Consider just the week before football fans in those 14 states across the country were out of luck too if they wanted to throw a party (last minute) to watch the Big Game. 

These old Blue Laws have long outlived their relevance.
