UPPER MARLBORO, Md. (AP) — The Prince George’s County liquor board has approved new rules for evening entertainment and the home delivery of alcohol.

Under the entertainment rule, clubs will be required to apply for a permit to hold evening entertainment. Permission for evening entertainment after 9 p.m. will now require a $1,500 annual fee, a security plan and a public hearing.

The alcohol home delivery rule requires that the delivery person be at least 18 years old, and that the business owner record the names of people receiving deliveries. The buyer and recipient must also be at least 21 years old. Stores applying for permission to make deliveries will have to pay a $250 fee and reapply annually.

All the rules were approved Wednesday and are effective immediately.
