You might be able to order a drink a bit later in the state of Delaware.

Legislation is pending that would extend last call from 1 a.m. to 2 a.m.

Small venues would pay $1-thousand to sell after alcohol for that hour while larger places would pay $5-thousand.

The legislation is now in the House Economic Development Committee.



            Eleven-thirty p. m. is now the time for last call at Selbyville restaurants for patrons who want last alcoholic beverage to cap off the night.

            And, consumption must end by midnight.

            The City Council approved the new ordinance this week.

            And Council member Frank Smith called the measure -- a way to maintain the perception that the town is safe.

            The Wilmington News Journal reports that the ordinance was prompted by several late-night altercations at establishments in the town.
