Diners in one Kentucky city will soon be able to have a drink with dinner.

In a special election Tuesday, Williamsburg voters narrowly approved liquor by the drink sales at local restaurants.

533 people voted yes, 591 voted against the measure.

The qualifying restaurants must seat at least 100 people, and get 70% of its revenue from food sales.

Mayor Roddy harrison says two investors already have committed to bringing in two franchise restaurants since the vote passed, but he is not sure what they are.

Earlier this month, a similar measure in nearby London, Kentucky failed.
