Outdoor Drink Area
Designated Outdoor Refreshment Area
Hours of Operation: 7 days a week; Noon to Midnight
How it Works: You can purchase a beverage from a liquor permit establishment within the DORA boundaries and walk around our downtown DORA district with your drink! To be able to do so, you will need to purchase a $1 DORA Bracelet (one time purchase, good for the entire day at every establishment) and request that your beverage be placed within one of the designated DORA plastic cups if you wish to leave the establishment. Drinks cannot be taken out of the establishment without being in an official DORA cup and the individual must have an official, dated DORA bracelet on. No cans, no glass bottles, and no outside drinks are permitted within the DORA.
- Buy and wear your dated, DORA wristband, good from Noon-Midnight at every establishment.
- Purchase your drink at a DORA designated establishment.
- Drink and Stroll inside the DORA boundaries, look for signs!
- Please finish your drink before entering another DORA designated establishment (ie- you are unable to take your alcoholic DORA drink from one bar/restaurant to another establishment that serves alcohol).
