First Thursdays Art Walk and all fine art galleries need your help.
Currently, ABC provides that no license or permit is required for the serving of alcoholic beverages in a limousine, hot air balloon, seasonal business, or at beauty salons and barber shops. All of which can serve to clients aged 21, provided there is no extra fee charged for the beverage.
Galleries throughout California offer complementary alcoholic beverages to their customers at no charge. However, by providing such beverages without an ABC license, these establishments are in conflict with state and local alcohol licensing requirements.
Please support AB 2460 – to allow art galleries to provide beer and wine to patrons for consumption on the gallery premises without a license or permit! Link to the letter of support below.
