Just Not Right

Being here in Tennessee, we have learned a couple of things that just don't happen in Florida. For example, last night we went to the liquor store to get some Captain Morgan. As Eric was checking out, he asked the cashier where the soda was. The guy asks Eric what he was looking for and Eric replied, ginger ale. The cashier asks, "Is there any alcohol in ginger ale?" Eric says no and the cashier said "Then we don't sell it here." So apparently, you can only buy alcohol at a liquor store and hope that a convenient store is near by. Now isn't that strange?
So tonight, Eric and I walked to a bar and grill to get something to eat. The waitress comes up and asks what we want to drink. We ask her if they had liquor and she said no only beer. She mentioned however, that we could brown bag it (basically bring our own liquor). Eric and I looked at each other in surprise. It's acceptable to bring in alcohol AND, they will supply any type of mixer for your drink. How bizarre!
