HIJOLE! Two different sources say two different things. I guess if you're caught dry right now, you could go out in search of a vendor who follows the 2nd opinion. BUENA SUERTE!

The temporary prohibition on buying booze takes effect at 6 a.m. Saturday, July 4, continuing through midnight, Sunday, July 5, as mandated under Article 42 of Jalisco’s Law to Regulate the Sale and Consumption of Alcoholic Beverages.

Staff at the Chapala business license office report that the restriction applies to all types of liquor outlets, including restaurants and bars.

From board in Chapala area - plan ahead

The "ley seca"--the 'dry' law--is imposed for 24 hours every time there is an election in Mexico. The dry law applies from midnight on Saturday the 4th to midnight on Sunday the 5th. This isn't about local elections at Lakeside; this Sunday, there are mid-term elections all over Mexico for federal, state, and local officials. The "ley seca" applies everywhere in the country. All elections in Mexico are on Sundays, so the "ley seca" is always from Saturday night through Sunday night.
