RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) -- Restaurants and bars in Virginia will soon be able to advertise the hours they offer drink specials.

The Virginia Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control announced Thursday that they have given final approval to the rule changes that we first told you about last November.

Bars and restaurants will be able to post on social media and in newspapers when they offer discounted drinks beginning Jan. 29.

However, customers will still not be able to see the exact prices.
