A social district is a defined area created by the Town where bars and restaurants can sell alcoholic drinks in special cups that allow their customers to walk around the social district and into other businesses.

When is the Social District in operation?
The Social District is active from 11:00 a.m. - 10:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 1:00 - 9:00 p.m. on Sundays. 
How do I know which businesses are participating?
Businesses can choose if they would like to participate or not. You can tell the difference by the stickers placed on their front doors. 

  • A Blue sticker indicates that a bar, brewery, or restaurant serves social district beverages. 
  • A Green sticker indicates that you can enter that business with your beverage, even if they don't sell alcohol there. 
  • A Red sticker or no sticker means you cannot go into that business with a beverage.

How does it work?
Just go to your favorite bar, brewery, or restaurant and ask the server for your drink in a social district cup. You'll get the same drink in a plastic cup with the social district's logo on the side. You can leave the place that served you and walk around within the boundaries of the social district and into any other business with a green or blue sticker on the door. Make sure you throw away your cup before leaving the district, or getting in a vehicle. 
How do I know where I can go?
There are signs along the edges of the social district to let you know when you're at the boundary. They all have the map, the hours, and a QR code that brings you back to this page on our website.
