Strip clubs in these dry counties often sell "set ups" (a cup with soda, ice, and a stirrer to which one can add their own alcohol) and have a BYOB policy to allow patrons to bring their own alcohol into the establishment. Virginia also restricts the sale of hard liquors (or distilled spirits) to State-run stores, or VA ABC stores.

This set up is unique in that the Virginia Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control not only is responsible for the sale of liquor, but also for the enforcement of alcohol-related laws in addition to public education campaigns.

Public bars (so-called "open saloons") are illegal in these dry counties.

Another 59 counties (including Johnson County, the largest county in Kansas and the largest Kansas portion of the Kansas City Metropolitan Area) approved the 1986 amendment but with a requirement that to sell liquor by the drink, an establishment must receive 30% of its gross revenues from food sales.

Texas law prohibits off-premises sale of liquor (but not beer and wine) all day on Sunday, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, and New Year's Day.

The only places in the county where liquor can be purchased are a couple of stores inside the city limits of Alvarado.

A bill passed in 2003 by the Texas Legislature allows for Justice of the Peace precincts to host alcohol option elections.
