I really just wish we could go back to (at least) the older beer garden where you can sit and enjoy a drink and the band and your kids can dance. Now walking into the beer garden feels like you're being punsihed for something.

Here we go again! Blablabla about the beer and wine garden. DON'T go then! Things change and just like you, the downtown association has to deal with it. We have Fire and PD officials that were going to shut it down if it didn't change. I called the downtown association and they explained everything and now I understand. Get off your stupid soapbox and enjoy what we're still allowed to do in downtown.

Personally, the 5th of May is one of my favorite celebrations!

A Diet Coke and a Cabana` Dave's pulled pork sandwich is a great way to celebrate. Saves a trip to AZ too.

from letsgo: "Now walking into the beer garden feels like you're being punsihed for something"
Yeah, maybe you are being punished, for people who are so dumb they think their kids need to be everywhere, including where booze is served. The kids can hear the band and dance to it without having to be in the beer garden. And you can stay out of the beer garden with them if you drink at home rather than in the street. Oh yeah, you won't driving under the ifluence then either will you?
Why does it always have to be about needing to take kids everywhere and making it harder on adults? Maybe you are the one discussed in another thread who allowed the kids to scream throughout an entire dinner, ruining it for everyone else. "Here we go" has it right, things change and if you don't like the way they are you do have the option to boycott.
