ATLANTA — Super Bowl celebrations will likely be everywhere you turn, but one place you won't be able to bring the party is into the streets.
11Alive News checked with Atlanta Police Wednesday, and officials say they don't plan to lift the city's ordinance on drinking in public. So if you planned on taking your drink from the bar with you - don't.
According to the city ordinance, "it shall be unlawful for any person to drink any vinous, malt or other alcoholic beverage while on any streets, sidewalks, alleyways, parking areas or other open areas operated and controlled by the city, or while in or on the grounds of any MARTA station."
On the bright side, the City adopted a "pour until four" ordinance back in August that would allow all establishments licensed to sell alcohol to stay open until 4 a.m. while the Super Bowl is in town. The ordinance takes effect Jan. 28 and lasts until Feb. 4.
