Decatur’s Arts & Entertainment District can be enjoyed by everyone. It has had a positive impact on the downtown community. However, there is an ordinance-a law- of which many people are not aware. A patron may hold only one alcoholic beverage at a time. Even if two people are walking together, each with an alcoholic beverage in hand and one has to stop to tie his/her shoe, he/she may not hand the drink to the other person to hold. He/she must set it down. This is the law. Now get out and enjoy Decatur’s A & E District, but only one drink at a time!
