Minneapolis votes to expand where restaurants can sell liquor

- Bottoms up, Minneapolis. After Tuesday's election results, you will soon see more cocktails being enjoyed around the city.

Minneapolis voters faced a ballot question asking if they wanted to remove a section of the city charter that gives the State Legislature control over liquor license applications. Currently, only Minneapolis restaurants within about seven acres of downtown can serve liquor.

The voters spoke, and now the restrictions regarding where in the city liquor can be served will be lifted and all restaurant across Minneapolis can apply for a license to sell liquor. 

For many restaurant owners, that is a good thing as it could potentially bring an influx of revenue.
