When you are a city that has some experience with winning, you have some expertise in how to avoid public disasters.  Fresh off of watching violence break out amid his city after the Giants won the World Series, San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee is asking city bars to serve something other than heavy alcohol during the Super Bowl.

“I suggest that they serve something (other) than heavy alcohol during the times of celebration cause that inebriation sometimes doesn’t help with people who might go beyond the bounds of acceptability in their celebration

36 people reportedly arrested during post game celebrations for the Giants in October.  23 of those arrest were acts deemed felonies.

“We want the city to be both celebratory and safe for everyone,” Mayor Ed Lee said Thursday at a news conference.

“I’m really concerned about the small businesses that got hurt during the World Series,” he added.

Good luck with that Mayor Lee.  Your asking to city bars to shut down their main money-maker during the yearly holiday called the Super Bowl.


I doubt it.
