Spring Snags an Hour of Alcohol Sales from Tennessee Saloons

03.09.12
Hope springs eternal, but not for Tennessee restaurants and bars in the wee hours of Sunday morning March 11, when clocks spring forward for daylight savings time. At 2 am, clocks spring forward an hour.

Suddenly, it is 3 am. Is it closing time?

The Tennessee ABC says yes. Last Call is an hour early. At 2 pm standard time, when clocks are set forward one hour for daylight savings time, alcohol sales must cease. The Nashville Beer Board concurs. On Sunday morning, closing time is 2 am.

There is good news at the end of summer. On Sunday November 4, bars get a bonus hour and can close at the equivalent of 4 am, when clocks fall back at 2 am. At 2 am, suddenly it is 1 am. 

Confusion over daylight savings time is rampant. But the Tennessee ABC is clear about the rule. Close at 2 am this Sunday March 11.
