ATTENTION: BK Speaks Petition On Barclay's Alcohol Sales

Brooklyn Speaks has created a public petition directed towards New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo and State Liquor Authority Chairman Dennis Rosen to demand public accountability for Barclay's Center alcohol sales. You may review Council Member James' community board testimony on the matter here.

The petition states that Barclays’ license must be limited to serving drinks during ticketed arena events only, and must mandate an end to liquor sales after half time at an NBA game, 45 minutes before the end of an event, or at 10:00PM—whichever comes first. In comparison, Chicago's Wrigley Field is allowed to host only 30 evening events a year, liquor sales must end no later than 9:30PM, and any changes to that policy have to be approved by the Chicago City Council.

Please support accountability on the part of Barclay's, and fair liquor service that considers public safety. The petition is available here:
