Friday’s Forecast = Somewhat Dry

drinks at rum hut

It looks like tomorrow’s going to be a rather dry day here on St. John. Well at least until four o’ clock.

Good Friday is the one day of the year that alcohol sales are restricted by V.I Code. That means that bars, restaurants and even the markets are not able to sell liquor between the hours of 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. This means no Painkillers, no Bushwackers, no rum and Cokes, etc. You can, however, drink wine and beer all day long should you choose to.

Here’s the official details…

Pursuant to Title 1, Section 171(b) V.I.C., distilled liquor and drinks prepared therewith shall not be served in public places of refreshments between the hours of 9:00 o’ clock in the morning and 4:00 o’clock in the afternoon on Good Friday. Violation of this subsection will result in a fine of not more than $200 or imprisonment for not more than one year, or both.

    Do you have contact info for your advertiser St John Storage? Their ad doesn’t show a phone number and they don’t show up when I do a search for the name – looking for car storage!
    Thank you!

    BYO you silly savages. Just ’cause you can’t buy it during those hours, doesn’t mean you can’t drink.
