Depending on where you live, you could enjoy a mimosa earlier on Sundays after Nov. 6.
Gwinnett County and multiple cities are planning to hold referenda on whether to extend the time during which alcohol can be served on Sundays. Currently, the liquor cabinet must be locked until 12:30 p.m., but under the “Brunch Bill” signed by Gov. Nathan Deal, counties and cities can vote on whether to allow restaurants to serve booze as early as 11 a.m.
Gwinnett County decided to hold a referendum on the November ballot during a July meeting, but cities need to decide for themselves. Here’s which Gwinnett cities plan on holding votes on earlier alcohol sales (so far):
The city is considering a proposal to hold a Nov. 6 referendum at its Aug. 13 council meeting.
There will not be a referendum this year, but likely in 2019, according to spokesman Brian Arrington.
The city plans on holding a referendum in November 2019, according to spokeswoman Abby Wilkerson
The city will not have a referendum this year, but will consider adding it to the ballot for Lilburn’s November 2019 municipal elections.
The city will hold a referendum on extending alcohol sales on Nov. 6, 2018.
A referendum on earlier alcohol sales will be on the November 2019 ballot, according to spokeswoman Varessa Butts.
