Wellesley rated a mention on the Enobytes web site’s “Top 10 Wackiest Wine Laws That Still Exist” posting (thanks to BobD from the Wellesley Wine Press for passing along)
6. In many states, it is illegal to carry an alcoholic drink from the bar to a table. In some states its illegal to sit at a bar (standing room only) and in other states, you have to be seated to be served! I remember being in Wellesley, MA and saying to a bartender, “You must be a really be a bad bartender, they took away all your seats”. I cant’ keep up with all these wacky state laws!
Of course Wellesley does have some bar stools these days, such as at Blue Ginger and the Cottage, though patrons are encouraged to order food if they want a drink.
