Alcohol sales soar today and end tonight

At 8:00 PM today, Costa Rica’s ban on alcohol sales will go into effect.  Liquor sections in grocery stores will be covered in black plastic and taped to prevent access to cans of Imperial, Pilsen and Bavaria.  Bars will shut down, many with yellow tape over their doorways announcing the fact.  Anyone prosecuted and convicted for selling liquor during this time is subject to a jail sentence.  (FYI: Liquor bans are also in effect during presidential elections.)
