Alamance Votes Down Liquor by the Drink

Posted June 4, 1997 12:00 a.m. EDT

— You won't find any mixed drinks at restaurants in the Alamance County town of Graham any time soon. Residents voted down a referendum Monday night that would have allowed restaurants to sell the liquor-by-the-drink.

It was a close vote though. The final tally was 894 to 803.

Graham now permits beer and wine sales in restaurants, but liquor must be brown-bagged.
