I'd agree. Move to Colorado! Lol.
Many other states have similar allowances for carrying in a bar. One of my favorite hangouts, while legally a "bar," is more of a good food and pizza hangout for middle-aged yuppies than a traditional bar. Lots of great bands, too.
But yes, it'd be nice to see Fl relax that restriction.
It think part of that restriction is that bars used to be places where people just got drunk. No entertainment, no good food. That's almost invariably changed over the years, to the point where the seedy, naughohide furniture, low lighting, sticky floors, and smoke-filled bars you'd see in movies from the 60s are 70s are all but gone.
