Since I moved to Minnesota from my home state of North Dakota back in 2012, it’s happened to me more times than I’d like to admit. I’m guessing this has happened to you, too.

It’s a Sunday afternoon, and I’m picking up groceries for the upcoming week. I guess I’ll make spaghetti tonight, I think to myself, so maybe I should pick up a bottle of red w – oh. Crap.

Or I’m about to head over to a friend’s place for a Sunday afternoon pool party. It’s BYOB. I’ll just grab a case of – OH, COME ON.

Repeat several times throughout the past five years I’ve lived here. I think I’ve tended to forget that liquor stores are closed on Sundays because it’s such a stupid law to begin with. It’s not that I need to buy alcohol on a Sunday, but it’s nice to have it as an option, no?

Thankfully, that’s no longer going to be a thing. Sunday, July 2, is the official day when you can finally purchase booze on a Sunday. I don’t know about you, but I’m planning on buying a 40 just to spite the people who originally put these blue state laws into effect. It’s going to taste delicious.
