Dry towns in New Jersey cannot forbid the possession, consumption, or transportation of alcohol, but have the option to permit or prohibit BYOB at restaurants and social affair permits for non-profit organizations. The vast majority of entirely wet counties are in southern border regions of Texas near Mexico, or in the south central portion.
The patchwork of laws can be confusing, even to residents. In others, beverages that are 14% or less alcohol are legal.
Strip clubs in these dry counties often sell "set ups" (a cup with coke, ice, and a stirrer to which one can add their own alcohol) and have a BYOB policy to allow patrons to bring their own alcohol into the establishment. Virginia also restricts the sale of hard liquors (or distilled spirits) to State-run stores, or VA ABC stores.
This set up is unique in that the Virginia Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control not only is responsible for the sale of liquor, but also for the enforcement of alcohol-related laws in addition to public education campaigns.
Tisbury is a formerly dry town which became partially wet after voters passed a motion at the Tisbury town election on April 27, 2012.

33 states have laws which allow localities to prohibit the sale (and in some cases, consumption and possession) of liquor.
