It looks like it’s going to be a dry day on the island today. 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. today. So unless you stocked up last night, you’ll have to forgo the rum in your rum and Coke until later this afternoon.
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.

It says “distilled liquor”, wine’s not distilled. I’m getting me a brown paper bag and a bottle of muscatel.
Beer is a go?
This “forecast” would have been much more valuable had it run yesterday…
It sure would have.
So nice to meet you guys last night!! I’ll be checking out your blog on the regular for now on!!! Have a great Good Friday and hope to see you Sunday!
Ok shaking uncontrollably while I’m typing this. So glad you put the detail in letting us know beer is still available. Whew! I can come out of shock now.
Hang in there. The dry spell is almost over.
