    In WA it's 2AM. Which is too early to stop selling booze but, you know, given some time I was able to adjust. Then I'm in Oregon last week trying to buy booze at 10:45PM yet no one is open. I look all over and don't bother to ask anyone because I'm a man and we figure things out the hard way. Well, it turns out they don't sell liquor in Oregon after 10PM.

    Why so early? What prompted this? Would this also be an inconvenience to you?

    (On a related note strip clubs in WA aren't allowed to serve alcohol at all which also blows my fucking mind.)

    PacWest isn't as cool as I thought.

    Let's say what you were about to fuck drank all your booze and stormed off after 2AM. You just going to able to sleep? Or would you like to slam a bottle and desperately drunk dial every woman in your phone before passing out? Assuming you're not busy the next day.

    I'm in B.C. Canada. Private stores close at 11. Government stores have varying hours but the latest is also 11. And this is after recent changes to laws which make buying booze easier.

    All 24-hour convenience stores here in Korea sell beer, wine, soju and liquor all day, every day. A lot of the convenience stores have little tables where people sit around drinking till the sun comes up at the wee hours.

    Pretty much no laws here regarding consumption or sales. Or public consumption or drunkenness, either. Not entirely uncommon to find people passed out on the street at all hours of the day.
