I used to have friends that worked at the Circle K (a convenience store, sort of the American version of a periptero only bigger) on Belmont Boulevard, and I was a frequent customer there myself. One thing you could guarantee was a rush of beer sales around 1am Sunday morning - an hour before all alcoholic beverages were forbidden, by archaic Bible Belt law, to be sold.
Now I would have expected as a sign of new, improved, modern times, that the bill presented in the Tennessee State Legislature to allow alcohol sales on Sunday might have passed. But it didn't. It didn't even make it past the Senate. Thank goodness the Tennessee Senate has the perspicacity to keep people from buying alcohol on Sundays. Otherwise the state would devolve into some sort of modern day Sodom and Gomoroh.
