That's not a lot and some &nbsp;residents say they routinely cross county and state borders to get some breakfast or lunch. It's tied to the state's prohibition on restaurants serving alcohol on Sundays. Next week, residents will vote on whether to allow restaurants serve alcohol on Sundays.</p><p>The effort has been led Elissa Boyet. She didn’t know about the prohibition when she moved from Charlotte to Lancaster County in 2008.</p> Wed, 31 Oct 2012 21:45:58 +0000 Tasnim Shamma 14891 at http://wfae.org Lancaster Will Vote On Sunday Alcohol Restaurant Sales
