Vino-Free Valentine’s Day

7 Feb

OK, so by now you’ve heard that the Mississippi State Tax Commission is requesting–well, insisting–that we toast to our sweeties on Valentine’s Day with soda and sweet tea.

The Commission has denied the request to serve liquor next Sunday. However, if you’re set on celebrating over a glass of merlot, consider dining at one of the popular BYOB establishments such as Yocona in Exile, Taylor Grocery or Castle Hill Resort & Restaurant (as a resort, they can serve alcohol on Sundays). If you know of any BYOB establishments I’ve left out, please let me know by commenting here or contacting me at foodie@eatingoxford.com so we can all spread the word.

Have a great Valentine’s Day, and remember that you don’t need wine or a “sweetie” to feel the love from friends and family every day of the year.
