HB 1024 that basically codifies into law the executive order made by Gov. Abbott during the pandemic that allows restaurants to sell alcohol to go (with food).
I’ve enjoyed this myself—nice treat to pick up something with margaritas. Obviously, it was helpful when dining rooms were closed, but also just nice as a parent who brings in food more than we take the kids out period.
The House passed it and, now, the Senate has too. It’ll go to the governor’s desk, where he has long expressed support for it.
