Alcohol outside

I see in the agenda for tonight's City Council meeting that the Council has to amend an existing ordinance to allow for outside consumption of alcohol on public property.

Better late than never, right?

The Council hasn't actually approved any outside consumption of alcohol on public property - well not any that was approved by the state - but there are a couple of requests - Oregano and The Port Tavern.

I was at Port Tavern for lunch last Friday with a group I may be writing about and I asked one of the guys if he would sit outside to dine if he couldn't drink out there.

He said "no" and that he would expect to be able to have a drink with his lunch or dinner.

But it didn't stop him from patronizing the place.
