When will Oak Cliff be wet?

We all know that the major result of the passage of Proposition 2 in the recent wet/dry election is that Oak Cliff restaurants will not need to be private clubs in order to serve their patrons mixed drinks, wine and beer. Under the TABC rules for private clubs in dry areas, those restaurants were required to pick up their liquor from so-called Class B retail stores. Now those same restaurants will obtain a new type of TABC permit and be able to have liquor, wine and beer delivered to them by wholesale distributors.  Hopefully, this will result in a wider selection at the restaurants but, unfortunately, not lower pricing.
