Gainesville has dumb regulations. It should be how it is down here in West Palm.
Also in Gainesville there is a liquor store that is open till midnight on university. practically at the corner of 13th that i know of so if you need liquor later at night i'd go there.
Gator Beverage only sells liquor till 11 and beer till 2.
I was up in Gville for a show one night at wayward and I went to the liquor store there at midnight and got a bottle of Jack. Unless they recently changed their hours..
