“Dewhurst Bill” Will Allow You To BYOB To Any Restaurant

Restaurant owner Amy Severson is fightin’ mad. She just sent me a note: “I find it highly laughable that after 70+ years of a patchwork of liquor laws that take forever to modify, this one goes through like some bad Chinese food.”

She’s referring to what is being called the “Dewhurst Bill.” Seems our Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst is a wine snob and is frustrated by not finding the wine he likes on Austin wine lists. Dewhurst has a bill on its way to the state Senate that would let Texans carry their own wine into liquor-carrying restaurants and leave with whatever they don’t drink. You can read the story here . Amy is calling around to local restaurateurs and will send a full report later. Guess I should send her a bottle from my stash.
