This is one of the laws that is a little confusing. 12. Any portion of an establishment licensed to dispense alcoholic beverages for consumption on the premises, which portion of the establishment is primarily devoted to such purpose; If I go to outback, I can carry in the main eating area that's primary purpose is to serve food, but not at the bar. But can I sit at the tables in the bar area where I am eating. I have refused to take those area's to eat because it is close proximity to the bar (used other reasons of course) and is considered the bar area, you can just drink at those tables. What about a dance club or pool hall, they have a bar in it, but the majority of the club/hall is for dancing or playing pool. I can see where you can't hang around the bar area. But does the fact the club/hall only provide music/pool tables and liquor mean it's primarily devoted to the purpose of dispensing alcoholic beverages? I'm going to guess the answer is you can't can't carry there. Thoughts?
