UP residents are even closer to getting a hassle-free cold one inside the city limits.
Just spoke with University Park’s most famous certified nutritionist, Max Fuqua (who, if you missed his comment, is offering deliciously free froyo to those mentioning this humble blog). He says that on Friday, Open Up For UP will present plenty more than the minimum signatures required to put both proposed ordinances on the Nov. 2 ballot.
“We got all the signatures we need,” said Fuqua, “and a pretty good surplus.”
For those keeping track at home, Open Up For UP is facilitated by the University Park Merchants Association and hopes to not only abolish the private club restrictions in UP restaurants, but get retail beer and wine sales in stores throughout the city. The organization needed a little more than 2,500 signatures from registered University Park voters on each petition.
