Sunday alcohol sales

A Paducah area winery can now sell alcohol on Sundays. Purple Toad Winery received enough votes in a Lone Oak precinct election. 

Voters determined whether 'small farm wineries' like Purple Toad can sell their product between the hours of 1 and 10 p.m.

A McCracken County winery is petitioning officials to allow it to sell alcohol on Sundays in order to keep up with competing businesses.  


A Murray city councilman says the group’s decision to allow Sunday alcohol sales at a golf course sends mixed signals to the community even though the issue seems dead.

Councilman Greg Taylor is one of three council members who voted against allowing Sunday sales. He says in a previous reading of the ordinance that allowed sales at the Murray Country Club, the Public Safety Committee suggested Sunday restaurant sales as well. The restaurant language did not make it to a council vote.

Taylor says while the golf course can serve alcohol on Sundays, restaurants won’t anytime soon.
