Booze Ban

One Green Bay area retains 110-year-old ban on booze, though policy could change

There's one neighborhood in Green Bay, Wisconsin, where you can't enjoy a beer while watching the Packers -- although that could soon change.

Voters will decide tomorrow whether to end a 110-year-old ban on alcohol in a three-by-two mile area on Green Bay's west side. Area business leaders leaders say the ban has hurt development. But some people worry about crime and the character of the neighborhood changing.

More than 20-thousand people will be asked whether to let restaurants and hotels serve alcohol. Bars would still be banned.
