All kidding aside, this should be a good one. Hope to see you there.


Will Cheek Talks About Liquor Laws With the Tennessee Bar Association

When talk turns to liquor laws in Tennessee, everybody has a question.

• Why can’t I Kroger for wine? If 69% of Tennesseans favor wine in grocery store, what's the holdup?

• I can buy tequila but not beer, limes or shot glasses at my liquor store, what's up with that?

• Why was the right for women to vote crucial to prohibition?

• Why would we ban the sale of all alcohol?

Attorney Will Cheek of Bone McAllester Norton delivered a one-hour CLE webcast with the answers to these questions and more concerning the labyrinth of liquor laws in Tennessee, a place where liquor has played a pivotal and sometimes controversial role in the state's history and economy.
