Another Barclays brouhaha:
The NY State Liquor Authority has yet to give final approval on the Barclay Center's license. A local activist group Brooklyn Speaks want Barclays booze sales to stop by 10 PM. Here's what they say:
"Barclays Center ... has applied for a license that would allow it to keep serving alcohol up to the 4AM State limit in an 18,000-seat arena."
They're calling it an open bar for 18,000 till 4 AM, though that's worst case.
Still, the booze will be flowing.
And locals are expecting the worst: raucous fans, drunk driving, vomit on the streets.
Personally, though I'm looking forward to going to a few concerts, games, and maybe Disney on Ice at the Barclays Center (see the schedule), I'm def in favor of limiting the license -- and I've told the Governor so. (Here's how.)
Weigh in on the controversy: Should there be limits on how late alcohol can be sold at Barclay's Center? Sound off here.
