To-Go Alcohol Law in Tennessee is Extended

Tennesseans may recall that  Governor Lee signed an executive order during the COVID-19 pandemic allowing restaurants to sell alcoholic beverages for take-out.  Apparently, this order was so popular that the Tennessee legislature extended the law to allow “To-Go” purchases of alcohol to continue.
