FORT LAUDERDALE (CBS4) — Some business owners in the city of Fort Lauderdale are battling back against an old law that prohibits alcohol sales on Sunday morning.

According to the Sun Sentinel, Fort Lauderdale does not allow alcohol to be sold from 3:00 a.m. to noon on Sundays. Many restaurant and bar owners have complained about the law which prohibits tourists and locals alike from enjoying a mimosa or bloody Mary during Sunday brunch.

Many South Florida cities have removed the ordinance from its books including Hollywood which began allowing alcohol sales to start at 7:00 a.m. on Sunday 17-years ago.

Mayor Jack Seiler said he’s willing to revise the law as long as alcohol sales on Sundays are limited to bars and restaurants, not liquor stores and grocery stores.
