Walking around with alcohol in open containers from restaurants is now legal in Virginia at some events - with caveats

Free Lance-Star - 07-18


Restaurants being able to legally advertise happy hour specials wasn’t the only Virginia alcohol law to go into effect July 1. A bill allowing drinkers to leave a restaurant carrying an alcoholic beverage and walk around with that beverage and into another establishment (that’s not a restaurant) is now legal in Virginia during licensed events and in designated areas.
