Winter Classic 2013: Alcohol Can Officially Be Sold

Back on May 24 a bill was passed by the Michigan House that would allow for the sale of alcohol to be served inside Michigan Stadium for the 2013 Winter Classic between the Detroit Red Wings and Toronto Maple Leafs.

The sale of alcohol has now been made official on Wednesday as the Michigan Legislature has approved the sale of alcohol at Michigan Stadium. The House passed the proposal three weeks ago, and it was on Wednesday that the Senate followed suit to allow for alcohol to be sold at the game.

The approval to sale alcohol at Michigan Stadium was given with a temporary 30-day liquor license to serve alcohol at the Winter Classic which takes place on Jan. 1, 2013.
