Brooklyn pol wants to legalize earlier alcohol sales

Why wait for a liquid lunch when you can have a boozy breakfast?

Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams wants to legalize 8 a.m. alcohol sales on Sundays as one of the ways to boost the booming industry.

Currently, alcohol sales are prohibited until 10 a.m. in New York City. But businesses outside the city can apply for a permit to start serving booze earlier under a recently adjusted state law.

“Since weekend brunch and European League soccer is a very popular activity in New York City…but New York City businesses are put at a disadvantage by having different time allowances than other parts of the state,” Adams’ report released Tuesday said.

The borough president is also calling for the city’s Economic Development Corporation to create a point person to provide information to industry operators and those seeking to join the business.
