With less than one month to go before it officially opens, the rusty mega arena that we all call The Barclays Center has just been granted a liquor license by The New York State Liquor Board.
Though Forest City Ratner and Levy Restaurants, the developer's food and liquor contractor, initially requested that liquor sales at the arena's swanky Court Side Club last until 2AM, the license only allows them to serve until 1AM.
Surely this compromise will still anger Brooklyn residents who have repeatedly requested that booze stopped being served at half time, lest an arena full of drunk people loudly spill out onto the streets and pee everywhere.
Only time will tell if the 1AM cut-off time holds up.
