Mimosas, bloody Marys and other drinks containing alcohol may be served in Oak Park at 9 a.m. on weekends and holidays, the Oak Park Village Board recently clarified.

The board made the change to clarify service rules for restaurants serving drinks with brunch — an increasingly popular social activity in the town, Powell said.

But others among the approximately 40 liquor license holders in Oak Park have had questions in recent years, Powell said.
