Oddball Liquor Laws Around the U.S.A.

I'll echo the PA law sentiment. I went to college in rural PA and we could only buy cases of beer instead of six packs. Fortunately, it was really easy to find people to split a case with. Also crazy, if you are caught underage drinking, you can loose your driving privileges...even if you were no where near a car when busted.

Also, I believe that you cannot serve booze in NYC until noon on Sundays. Always go to a place known for a good boozy brunch at 11:45 if you want to skip the lines and just wait to order at 12.
