Super Bowl Alcohol Ban to Hit San Francisco?

by at . Comments

San Francisco football fans looking to have an all-time day and night one week from Sunday may find themselves hampered by a Super Bowl alcohol ban.

Mayor Ed Lee is pushing to limit liquor sales before the Super Bowl February 3.

Alcohol Ban

He's worried about another incident like the 2012 World Series, in which the city saw wild rioting and vandalism from drunken fans after the Giants won.

Lee doesn't want to issue an outright Super Bowl alcohol ban, but he is encouraging business owners to "serve something (other) than heavy alcohol."

His reasoning is that "inebriation sometimes doesn't help with people who want to maybe go beyond the bounds of acceptability in their celebration."

Do you agree that perhaps an abundance of caution is warranted?

More importantly, who do you think will win Super Bowl XLVII?
