An additional Sunday permit is available which allows sale (on or off premises) on Sundays from noon until midnight. Exceptions are the prohibition of alcohol sale on Christmas, regardless of the day it falls on, and a Sunday permit allowing of sale (on or off premises) until 2:00 a.m. January 1, if December 31 falls on a Sunday. or for religious purposes.

Can I drink outside of the bar?
Nope. Where do you think you are, Bourbon Street?

Are there certain hours when I can't buy alcohol?
Unfortunately, there are some restrictions here.
In the bar: 7 a.m.-2 a.m., except Sundays, for establishments with full dispenser license.
At the store: 7 a.m.-12 midnight except Sundays

You can buy these delights in just a regular grocery store:
Beer
Wine
For everything else, you'll just have to go to a damn liquor store. Like an animal.
