The title of the agenda item's straight up: "approval of the sale of malt beverages, unfortified wine, fortified wine and mixed beverages in unincorporated Wake County beginning at 10 a.m. on Sundays."

However, it needs approval by the commissioners before diners in those specific areas of Wake County can order mimosas, Bloody Marys or any alcohol with their brunch menu choices.
