The holidays are here, and Christmas and New Year's Eve are right around the corner. As you ramp up planning and promotion of your holiday events, be sure you are following Illinois' happy hour law on meal/party packages, drink discounting, advertising, and more.

The IRA was instrumental in the 2015 passage of the Culinary and Hospitality Modernization Act, which defined and permitted food and wine pairings, packages, happy hours, infusions, and other key reforms essential to the growth of our industry.
