1 Pensacola Beach Alchohol Ban on 11/22/2015, 4:25 pm

I guess this means no more bringing your cooler to Bands on The Beach? (unless you're gonna sit out in the sand)

How is this gonna keep rowdies off the boardwalk .... they can just consume their beverages on the sand right off the boardwalk .... and still be rowdy on the boardwalk.

Just wondering how much of this is motivated by actual problems .... or is it just a revenue opportunity for the boardwalk alcohol vendors?

What say you all?

I would have to see what areas, but the pattern of the attitude on Pensacola Beach of exclusion of the general public is really not surprising. Under the guise of controlling rowdy conduct, you kill two birds......the public has further restrictions on their free use of their beach, and the businesses and leaseholders exercise private ownership of the beach through exclusion through regulation or the creation of a monopoly which makes a visit to the beach more expensive and restrictive. Exactly what people predicted.

Note this does not apply to the beach (out on the sand) itself .... just to open containers & consumption on the boardwalks & parking lots.

That may be different. However, if it quacks like a duck, swims like a duck, and waddles like a duck......there is a pretty good chance it is a duck. It still smells of exclusion.

People who have traditionally brought alcohol to the beach, and have not bought their alcohol at establishments on the beach.......cheaper and less restrictive.

Walking on the boardwalk at Quiet water beach is like walking a gauntlet. Too many drunks loitering.

That certainly is not family friendly, but a drunk who purchases their alcohol from a beach establishment, or a drunk who has his drink in the parking lot, or beach, are both still drunk and obnoxious. Would not the better course be to arrest the offenders for public intoxication if they are really that bad?
