Asheboro, the town I grew up in, was the largest dry city in the state of North Carolina â€” until yesterday. Yes, after years and years of the alcohol referendums failing at the polls, people can now actually order a drink at a restaurant instead of literally brown-baggin it.
There were some who were not so happy, however. Dr. John Rogers, opposed to the referendum, said, â€œThis outcome illustrates our war with our culture that is so saturated, particularly with alcohol.â€
As for me, I say, “Cheers!”
