I post this at my sports and entertainment blog, but I thought it might be of interest here as well.
While Rep. Donna Sheldon, R-Dacula, said a Sunday without beer at the ballpark would be fine with her constituents, Williams said he believes the stadium could enact the “restaurant rule,” which allows alcohol sales as long as more than 50 percent of food and beverage sales come from food. It is that provision that allows the arena to serve alcohol seven days a week.
“My understanding is the baseball stadium will be something like that,” Williams said, noting that alcohol amounts to 35 or 40 percent of sales at the major league Braves’ Turner Field. “As long as we don’t sell 50 percent or more, I think we can do it.”
