Beginning Nov. 2, people will be able to buy an alcoholic beverage at a club or restaurant and take it to the street.

The Board of Mayor and Aldermen Monday approved an ordinance establishing a leisure and recreation district allowing customers to buy their favorite alcoholic beverage at a restaurant or club in an area known as the “Washington Street District” and take it with them when they leave, or sit at an outside table at the business to enjoy their libation.

Under state law, the ordinance becomes effective after 30 days.
