As I wrap up 2008, here at A Connecticut Law Blog, it’s time for a look back on the year that was.
Here’s a post that you may be able to put to good use during the holiday season:
Here is the statute, complete with the definition of a full course meal (you’ll see that chex mix in a bar does not count):
A restaurant patron shall be allowed to remove one unsealed bottle of wine for off-premises consumption provided the patron has purchased such bottle of wine at such restaurant and has purchased a full course meal at such restaurant and consumed a portion of the bottle of wine with such meal on such restaurant premises. For the purposes of this section, “full course meal” means a diversified selection of food which ordinarily cannot be consumed without the use of tableware and which cannot be conveniently consumed while standing or walking. Conn. Gen. Stat. Sec. 30-22
