    This type venue needs to be moved to private property, and off the streets of downtown Galveston. Who is acountible for allowing this promoter an open bar, on the streets of downtown Galveston.

    I passed a sign that read " Fines are doubled during Road Construction". If they can double the fines during road construction how about this: " WARNING: Fines are doubled for infractions committed in a Mardi Gras Zone. Failure to comply with Police directives may result in you being Pepper-sprayed!"
