Buy Local First is a special purpose political action committee, formed to support allowing limited alcohol sales in Tyler and Smith County Justice Precinct 2. The group consists of local residents, business and community leaders and will be asking registered voters to VOTE for a local option election this November which will allow beer and wine sales in grocery store and convenience stores in Tyler and JP2.

This Friday (10/19) Stanley's Famous Pit Bar-B-Q will be holding a live music fundraiser to support their efforts. Come out for a good time, and the chance to support Buy Local First.

Admission is $15, and includes a dinner sandwich buffet. Live music will be provided by Austin's Shawn Nelson and the Ramblers. There will also be beer, wine and margaritas available for purchase.

All proceeds go to Buy Local First, and their efforts to finally make Tyler a legal place to buy beer and wine. Click here to read more about Buy Local First.
