That is a 1 year ban on beach boozing on any San Diego beaches. Until now there has been a few beaches in san diego that allowed respectfull drinking. On November 5, 2007 the San Diego city council voted on Monday for a 1 year ban on drinking on its beaches. The ban was passed after the Labor Day fiasco where lifequards and police in riot were called in to restore order. There have been many attempts in the past to eliminate drinking on these beaches, but the bans have always been rescinded.
I blame this on the few people who ruin it for the rest of us and because of them we can no longer drink our homebrews on the beach...at least for a year.
