Yarn Store Liquor License

I was just reading this article about a yarn store in Leonardtown, MD being granted an Arts and Entertainment liquor license.

According to the article,
The Arts and Entertainment liquor license allows businesses to offer wine and beer for sale or complimentary. The license limits servings to five ounces and customers are limited to two drinks per event.

I don’t know if this is just a regional thing or what.  It’s new to me.  Do other areas have this?  Does your wine store have this? If it does, please let me know, because I might consider moving.

This could add a whole new layer to the average community “Stitch and Bitch.” Don’t you think?

And for women, and men, looking for company and new friends, it certainly beats going out and hanging in a bar.  There used to be a small movie theater in my area that served wine and it was always a fun evening out.  In my opinion, if you knit or crochet, this would be just as nice.

As someone who enjoys an occasional glass of wine while crocheting, I applaud this and I hope the yarn stores in my area adopt this for a fun new way to “Wine and Whine” and Wind. Is that even a good name for this kind of thing?  lol.

What do you think?  Would you go to a yarn store event that served alcohol?  Share your thoughts in the comments.  I love hearing from my readers.

  1. What an excellent idea, I must see if there are any yarn shops near me with a licence! Although I’m a bit of a lightweight, it might affect my crochet 😉

  3. Nice! That’s a great idea… None of the yarn stores in Dublin serve alcohol… or if they do, they’re not telling me! 😆

    Oh this sounds so amazing! I’m so jealous! We don’t have much interest here on the small island for yarn stores or gatherings… but I’d definitely have wine 😊
