When I lived in Decatur (way too many years ago) everything north of the river from Madison county was dry. This still the case? We used to watch at the bridge - people fill their trunks over the river at the package liquor store, then get stopped by the sheriffs watching with binoculars. Always wondered why people didn't catch on - it wasn't like the cops were hiding at all.
Gratz on the success. Huntsville is a wonderful place! Hope to make it through there next year on a little pilgrimage.
