Colorado's First "GO CUP" Area in Downtown Greeley
Thank you to Downtown Greeley and the various establishments that have made the “GO CUP” possible! After various meetings and a good week petitioning, this dream for Downtown Greeley has finally become a reality! So what is the GO CUP?
The Go Cup represents a “Common Consumption Area” approved by the Local Licensing Authority within a designated Entertainment District. Established by city ordinance and in congruence with Senate Bill 11-273, the GO CUP Area provides a physically sanctioned space within which patrons are authorized to purchase an alcoholic beverage from a participating establishment on designated evenings and take that beverage outside in a clearly marked “Go Cup.”
What does this mean? This means that on June 8TH, Downtown Greeley’s first 2012 Friday Fest, the 9Th Street Plaza and the area on the west side of 8Th Avenue (to include Patrick’s and the Kress) will be the first place in Colorado where you can take your adult beverage outside to enjoy! And not just on June 8TH, but every Friday during the warm months (Except the Greeley Stampede Concert Kick-Off on June 15th).
What are the stipulations? We’re glad you asked. There are some very sensible boundaries to this new GO CUP Area which include:
· ONLY Drinks purchased at participating establishments in a clearly marked “Go Cup” can be taken outside. The participating establishments include:
o Mad Cow
o Penalty Box/ Jager
· The Go Cup Area is only in effect on Fridays from 5-11pm. Participating Establishments will stop serving drinks in “Go Cups” at 10pm.
· You WILL need to show your I.D. EACH time you purchase an adult beverage and you will be issued a wristband to take your drink outside.
· The Go Cup Area will be sanctioned off during the allotted times. No outside alcohol is allowed in, and no alcohol may be taken out of the designated area.
Downtown Greeley, and the Greeley Downtown Promotional Association overseeing the Go Cup Area, is excited to welcome you to this one-of-a-kind event every Friday on the Plaza! Bring the family, bring your friends, and enjoy a fun-filled evening downtown! Click HERE for a full Friday Fest Band Schedule!
