A measure created to help bars and restaurants during the pandemic is on Gov. Gavin Newsom’s desk, waiting to be extended another five years.

To-go cocktails will become a regular feature until Dec. 31, 2026 if Newsom signs SB 389. The allowance was granted when bars and restaurants were hit especially hard by government shutdowns. SB 389 passed out of both the Assembly and Senate without a single “no” vote recorded.

In total, 35 states began allowing customers to pick up alcoholic beverages and take them home. Of those, 14 states passed legislation extending the reprieve while another 16 states made them permanent.
