Booze Ban on Beaches

Last night was the second reading of the alcohol ban on San Diego beaches and therefore the ban will go into effect in 30 days, December 20th. I think it is a good thing. I have seen how the alcohol makes things get a little crazy and out of hand at the beaches and I am glad that families will be able to feel a little more comfortable on the beaches in the coming months (and hopefully no more riots like on Labor Day). Here is an article on the ban (which was released after the first meeting about 2 weeks ago).

1-year beach booze ban passed

No more wine at the beach at sunset. No more cold brews on the coast after work. No more of the drunken revelry that led to a near riot on Labor Day.

That's what the San Diego City Council decided last night, passing a one-year ban on alcohol at all city beaches, bay shores and coastal parks. The 5-2 vote, the minimum needed for passage, came after nearly four hours of debate and speeches by scores of residents and City Council members.
