Social Districts

Social Districts are open Friday and Saturday from 9 a.m. to midnight, Sunday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. 

    What is a Social District?

Social Districts are designated areas in which community members can #LiftUpLocal and purchase adult beverages from participating businesses, then enjoy those beverages while walking around or relaxing outside within the district. In order to enjoy adult beverages in the social districts, residents must ask participating restaurants for a marked cup and enjoy it within district boundaries (see map). Note: Beverages may not be taken into other businesses, and may not be purchased from non-participating businesses or brought from home.
