Ocean City’s BYOB Battle Will End Tuesday [POLL]
The yearlong battle over BYOB in Ocean City, NJ will come to an end on Tuesday. It has been one of the most highly contested issues in Ocean City’s history! And a final vote will come down on Tuesday.
According to the Press of Atlantic City,
“The ballot question asks voters if they want to repeal a 1984 law that bans alcohol consumption in city restaurants, replacing it with a new law that permits patrons to bring their own wine or beer to certain restaurants from 2 to 11 p.m.”
Selling alcohol will still be illegal, no matter what the outcome of tomorrow’s vote. Ocean City will still be a dry town.
The two sides of this battle are intense.
Some say the BYOB change will attract more people to the shore town and make OC more competitive to neighboring communities.
The other side says that Ocean City should stick to its roots. The town was founded in 1879 by Methodist ministers who wanted the island to be alcohol free.
So what do you think?
