Virginia residents looking for a little "hair of the dog" on New Year's Day can visit Virginia Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control stores; it will be the first time the stores have opened on the holiday.

WUSA-TV reported that state law previously banned the ABC shops from operating on Jan. 1, but new legislation that went into effect in July dropped the ban.

ABC stores will be open normal Sunday operating hours.
