    If I want to eat out what places commonly do/do not sell. How about supermarkets, do all have a beer wine case? Is there a sign out front that says "we sell beer / wine"? Where am I safe to go and get food where I don't have to leave my pistol in the car? I do not have a NM license and my CCW's are not accepted in NM>

    It's illegal to enter any place that sells alcohol while open carrying, which is what I'm assuming you're doing since you don't have a NM CCW. Basically every grocery store and restaurant sell alcohol/liquor. A lot of gas stations do too but not all, so be careful. It's a felony if you do get caught.

    There is no way to know for sure what business sells alcohol without asking or looking first.It seem like every business in NM has a license. Be very carefull with this statue. Violation of NM statue 30-7-3 is a4th degree felonythat can not be reduced or plea bargined to a lesser charge. It is a mandatory 1 year in prison.Please review NM statue 30-7-3.

    The safest course of action is to assume that any place that sells anything also sells alcohol either for on or off site consumption.

    Since coming back here for the winter I have travelled to most parts of the state and I have not encountered a single convenience store yet that does not sell alcohol for off site consumption.

    As for sale for on site consumption there are an innumerable amount of Mom & Pop restaurants, drive ins, diners, dives and cafe's that have at the very least a wine & beer license. Sometimes there is a beer brand neon sign in a window and sometimes you don't know until you open the menu.

    That is of course in addittion to all of the Applebee's, Chili's and similar franchises.
