No alcohol was sold in Lincoln on Sundays until 1988.
Fast-forward to today.
Lincolnites, thanks to a new state law, can now buy hard liquor, wine and beer at convenience stores, supermarkets and other outlets beginning at 6 a.m. on Sundays.
Soon they may be able to walk outside a tavern carrying a drink, thanks to another new law that allows “entertainment zones” amid a cluster of sports bars and restaurants.
The revelry could go on until 2 a.m. because Lincoln, like 106 other communities across the state, has expanded the hours of liquor sales at bars in the wake of a law the Nebraska Legislature passed two years ago.
