CHRISTMAS DINING: Here’s a list of local restaurants that are open on the holiday
"There are no exceptions in Ohio law for a temporary change in authorized sales privileges due to holidays, special events, or extraordinary circumstances," the agency cautions on its web site.

Those retail shops that are already operating under the state liquor agency’s “D-6” permit — and which are not blocked by a local option/precinct-level Sunday sales limitation — won’t have any problems. They’re already authorized to sell alcohol on Sundays, just as they can Monday through Saturday. The hours may be a bit more abbreviated, though: The D-6 license authorizes the sale of intoxicating liquor on Sundays starting at either 10 a.m. or 11 a.m. until midnight, a narrower window than weekdays and Saturdays.
So plan ahead, check with your local retailer, and don’t end up with a “Sunday Surprise.” Then, consume responsibly.
