Without on-premise dining, the restaurant industry has no on-premise alcohol sales to generate much-needed income, says a news release on change.org

The group has launched a petition to persuade the state of Minnesota to allow any on-premise licensee to sell closed containers for off-premise consumption, any alcoholic beverages that it is able to sell for on-premise consumption under the law.  

For example, if a customer is placing a to-go order from an establishment that sells wine and beer, they would be able to purchase wine and beer to-go.

The New York State Liquor Authority has already implemented action to protect its beverage industry, and we are urging Minnesota to follow suit.

The petition can be found here.
