MD Alcohol Tax Increase Kicks In

The Gazette has been full of articles about how MoCo restaurants will cope with the new Maryland alcohol tax, formerly 6% and now 9%, starting today — sounds like some logistical billing problems may ensue.  Will have to test that theory somewhere in Wheaton this weekend.  Also an article about interest groups grubbing for the tax revenue.  WaPo weighs in on the tax hike here.

Meanwhile, USA Today reports on fast food chains serving alcohol — but not (yet) in Maryland.  Previous report on Starbucks serving booze here.
