Keep Houston Press Free

Need Beer On Christmas Day? What's Open

Our sister blog Eating...Our Words is full of service-y goodness, listing all the places you can go to eat in Houston this Christmas Day.

But by this point in the day, you may be realizing a more pressing need: Beer.

Yeah, relatives are great and all, but not when you're sober. And Uncle Billy is not going to do something really out of line until he hits his fourth Bud, so you need to stock up for your own entertainment purposes at least.

Luckily, you live in Texas. Not one of these communistic states with onerous laws regarding the sale of beer and liquor.

Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

So here is the official list of places to get beer: Any convenience store, and most gas stations.

They're usually staffed by someone for whom Christmas isn't that big a deal anyway, so no need to feel guilty either for making them work!

Merry Christmas, everyone.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
