Liquor Could Soon Be Flowing 24/7 At Chicago Airports

Last month, we wrote about Chicago mayor Richard Daley’s proposal to allow airport restaurants to sell booze from push carts in the terminals. But now, as that edges closer to becoming a reality, the proposal has expanded to also permit 24/7 booze sales at these establishments.

Currently, restaurants and bars at O’Hare and Midway airports are forbidden from selling alcohol between 2 a.m. and 7 a.m. Mondays through Saturdays and from 3 a.m. to 10 a.m. on Sundays

The proposal has been approved by the city’s aldermen and now awaits a City Council vote.

While only a limited number of push cart licenses will be made available at O’Hare and Midway, all restaurants with current liquor licenses would be allowed to take advantage of the extended serving hours.

If O’Hare does go for 24-hour booze service, how long until this guy tries to spend an entire day soaking up suds?
