In a bubbly twist to Warner Robins' Sunday traditions, the 'Brunch Bill' may soon let the mimosas flow an hour earlier! As of now, restaurants in Warner Robins can only start serving alcohol at 12:30 p.m. on Sundays. However, a new bill is stirring the pot, aiming to let the champagne corks pop from 11 a.m.

Two local businesses explain why this is crucial right now. While Warner Robins diners have been left mimosa-less during the earlier hours of their brunches, neighboring city Macon's glasses clink merrily. "We've had customers express they'd rather have gone to Macon," sighs Kathy Reese, owner of Props. She estimates a whopping 15-20% loss in business due to the delayed alcohol serving time. It's not just about the mimosas, but the local economy too!

Christopher Smith, the bigwig at Tappan, with a selection of special craft beers, says they rake in an impressive $10,000 to $13,000 a week from alcohol alone. This potential early-hour boost could serve as a cushion to balance out their expenses.

But it's not just about the booze! As Megan from 13WMAZ News highlights, it's about supporting local businesses and giving the community the choice they deserve.

Do Warner Robins residents want their Sunday brunches a bit more spirited? Time will tell! Cheers to choices! 🥂🍾
