THE 411

Name: blue laws

What: laws created the keep society at peace

Location: each state has their own unique set of these laws


Blue laws vary from state to state and also cover a variety of issues.  A non-liquor example in Bergen County, New Jersey forbids several large shopping malls from being open on Sundays.  So, when you travel, be sure you know these restrictions, so you don’t get busted.

A glass of golden hard liquor on the rocks. Could be scotch, bourbon, or whisky.

Jersey Joe and his friends gather at a local restaurant to sample a Moscow Mule.  How this adult beverage became popular on the East Coast, before traveling to the West Coast, and back!


THE 411

Name: Moscow Mule

What: alcoholic adult beverage

Ingredients: ginger beer, vodka, lime juice

Traditionally served in: copper cup



It’s another one of those drinks that was popular in the past and is making a comeback.  Craft cocktails are now all the rage, so more drinks like this will be added to bar menus.  It’s interesting how this became a fad in New York City, then went west, only to be mostly forgotten in the East.

I still think it would be better frozen, though…

And remember… drink responsibility!  Sorry kids, 21 and over – please!
