Maryland has frustrating liquor laws, at least for those of us coming from states that aren't Pennsylvania. Wikipedia outlines them for the entirety of Maryland here, but I’ll break down the city’s laws for you, beyond the obvious, “Don’t drink if you’re under 21 unless you’re under your parents’ roof with their consent,” “Don’t drink and drive,” and, “You can have alcohol if it’s a religious service and that’s how y’all roll.”
- You can’t buy alcohol at the grocery store (except for Eddie’s of Mt Vernon and Roland Park. Raise your hand if you know why, because I have no earthly clue).
- Bars/taverns can’t sell you alcohol after 2am.
- You can’t buy alcohol on Sundays, except for any Sunday that lands between Christmas and New Years. At least they’re not barbaric about it.
