The one in Lincoln crosses over a street

Sorry, I rarely go down to Lincoln. Which area are you talking about?

EDIT : I assume you're talking about Canopy Street? http://journalstar.com/news/local/govt- ... b3962.html

So you can walk with an open alcoholic drink in your hand from Hiro over to The Railyard, by crossing the street while cars are driving by?



I cannot say for sure but I believe that you can cross the street without it being blocked off. I may be wrong on that though. I know the street is open for some events with a lot of people and traffic in the area.

Here is a map I found that defines the boundaries from 2013

Interesting. The last time I was at the Railyard (it was over a year ago) they were checking id's when you entered, and it did not seem like you could take alcohol out of the common area. Coincidentally I will be there Saturday night. We are spending the night with the hockey team I coach and letting the kids skate while we go to Longwell's. I will ask how it works.

Or you could just carry an adult drink from Longwells across the street and find out how it works and not how it is "supposed" to work!

In my younger days that is pretty much exactly how it would have played out....

OK was there Saturday night, You can't take drinks from the Railyard across the street to the Canopy area of the district. There is a sign stating not too.

That being said, still love this area. Spent most of the time at Longwell's. Did get a drink at Breezy Island Ice (think smaller version of Fat Tuesday's). They are only 4 bucks. It's in the inside area where you can rent ice skates (skating is free if you have your own skates).

Yeah, I couldn't imagine allowing open containers on public streets. I wouldn't be surprised if they fence the street off and open it up to pedestrians during large events.

They do that during NU Football games. People play Corner Hole there...
