OLYMPIA: Bill would allow galleries to serve free beer, wine

The Legislature has passed a bill that would allow wedding boutiques and art galleries to serve free beer and wine.

The Senate, on a 45-3 vote Monday, concurred with changes made in the House. The bill goes to Gov. Chris Gregoire.

Under the bill, wedding boutiques and art galleries can offer one free glass of wine or beer to customers who are at least 21. The drink must be consumed on the premises, and the free beer or wine can’t be advertised.
