    From Bridgeport to Weatherford, we've rounded up the results for alcohol-related resolutions voted on in Tuesday's election.

    So what do the resolutions mean for "Joe Six-Pack?"

    In Roanoke, it means you can't be "Joe Six-Pack" as alcohol beverage sales are still prohibited in retail outlets. The measure failed by one vote, with all precincts reporting.

    Melissa, where beer and wine sales are already allowed, shot down liquor sales. Voters also didn't approve a measure allowing beer and wine sales at grocery and convenience stores in Keene.

    But voters in Irving approved the sale of alcoholic beverages in stores -- where it was on the ballot for the third time since 2004. Voters also approved a measure allowing the sale of alcohol and mixed beverages in parts of Fort Worth that were dry when they were annexed.

    Beer and wine referendums on the ballot in Southlake and Waxahachie also passed.

    Ricky Knox, of the Texas Hospitality Association, said the results were a "big win" for the hospitality industry, local governments and consumers.

    The good news for folks who love a good martini is that you can now get a really good martini in Hunt County, as well as cities such as Waxahachie, Weatherford, Roanoke and Coffee City. Because if it's one thing folks in Coffee City really like, it's Irish Coffee.
