All-Star Weekend to Bring Extended Drinking Hours in Orlando

Since many of us common folk, as Fox 35 calls it, won’t be attending the NBA All-Star Game in Orlando this year, fans will now be able to drink longer in downtown Orlando.

The Orlando City Council on Monday voted to extend the legal drinking time until 3 a.m. during the All-Star Weekend, February 25-26.

Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer had this to say about the decision:

We wanted to give our drinking establishments in the downtown area the opportunity to benefit as much as they can.

As a downtown Orlando resident I am excited about the extra hour, but I won’t be fully impressed until bars stay open until 4 or 5 a.m., which will probably never happen.
