It's official! Texans are permanently allowed to order alcohol to-go from their favorite restaurants.

At the beginning of the pandemic, Gov. Greg Abbott waived restrictions so restaurants could make money through to-go drinks.

As restaurants began to reopen, a bill was introduced to keep the practice.

That bill was passed by both the Texas House and Texas Senate.

On May 12, Gov. Abbott signed the bill into law, making alcohol to-go permanent.
