I took a few days off, like almost all of February. And I'm not back yet, but I saw friend Janet Ivy had a couple of important posts on her blog, TABS on Texas. One is about Texans who want to import their wine from out-of-state retailers. The other deals with TABC liquor licensing problems that can arise when someone purchases an existing restaurant, especially if the buyer is not well represented in the purchase.
