Key West May Repeal Ban On Sunday Morning Alcohol Sales

KEY WEST (CBS4) – The next time you’re down in Key West, you may be able to enjoy a mimosa with your Sunday morning breakfast.

On Tuesday the Key West City Commission will consider repealing a long-standing ban on alcohol sales from 4 a.m. to noon on Sunday. Mayor Craig Cates sponsored the measure, saying the law frustrates visitors who might want a drink with their brunch.

The city considered amending the law more than a decade ago, but it failed. Cates say he thinks locals’ attitudes on the issue have changed and he’s confident it will pass.
