KITV: Alcohol Ban Considered During Honolulu Chinatown Street Festivals

posted by Randall

alcoholA group of Honolulu Chinatown leaders have submitted a petition of 500 signatures urging the liquor commssion to ban the sale of alcohol during block parties, reports KITV.

“It’s a constant excuse that we find that these promoters say, ‘We need the alcohol to make money,'” said Chu Lan Shubert-Kwock of the Chinatown Business and Community Association.  “But, if you need to make money on a cultural festival, don’t do it.  Get cultural funding.  Get sponsors and do one for the community and not for profit.”

Supporters say the booze has lead to public intoxication..
