Holy Crap! Zeeland voters overturn alcohol ban!

I. Am. Stunned. Congratulations Zeeland for pulling yourselves out of the 30’s.

For the first time since it’s inception as a city in 1907, alcohol can be sold in restaurants and stores. Prepare for moral decay, rioting, and a murder or two now that people can buy booze in town. Oh, wait, they have that already (maybe not the rioting) and they can buy booze by driving 3 miles.

As someone who grew up in this community I have to wonder why it took so long. Any teenager can tell you exactly where to go to buy beer in town. And there are liquor stores in almost every direction leaving town within one mile of the city line.

Sorry CRC, it’s over. Get your recount on but I imagine you’ll still lose. Too bad the vote was so close (40 votes!)… it emboldens the prudes to try and re-instate the ban. Of course, once residents get a taste of having beer with their meal at Community Kitchens, they’ll never go back.

Oh, and family that are reading, I’m buying the first round next time I’m in town.

  1. Ah…another refugee from the Western side of the state, eh? Congratulations. I didn't live in Zeeland, but I did graduate from Calvin College, so that's sorta the same, right? 🙂
