This article from the BBJ says that Baltimore City, Baltimore County and Frederick County all support this effort.     I’m all for it, but doubt it will get the traction it needs to really happen.

The simple fact is that the restaurant association is against this because this is cutting into their highest profit margins.    It is a reality that restaurants charge 2-3x the wholesale cost they are paying for liquor, wine & beer.
