Bloody Marys and mimosas could be flowing earlier on Sundays soon in Sandy Springs.
At its Tuesday meeting, the City Council unanimously voted to place a referendum on the Nov. 6 ballot, which will allow citizens to decide if Sandy Springs will have earlier alcohol sales on Sunday.
If approved by voters in November, Sandy Springs bars and restaurants can start serving drinks on Sundays at 11 a.m. Currently, no alcohol can be served in the city on Sundays until 12:30 p.m.
The vote will not apply to liquor stores or wholesale services. It applies only to licensed businesses that derive at least 50 percent of their total gross sales from food or the rental of rooms, such as restaurants and hotels.
