RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Virginia residents looking for a little “hair of the dog” on New Year’s Day can visit Virginia Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control stores. It’s the first time they’ve been open on the holiday.

WUSA-TV reports (https://on.wusa9.com/2hAzQ70 ) that state law previously banned the Alcoholic Beverage Control shops from operating on Jan. 1, but new legislation that went into effect in July dropped the ban.

ABC stores will be open normal Sunday operating hours.
