Alcohol permits issued for Six Flags Over Texas

Posted Wednesday, March 25, 2009 10:17 AM | Contributed by Jeff

Six Flags Over Texas was issued a mixed-beverage permit Tuesday, as the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission denied an appeal to hold a new public hearing on the issue. Although Six Flags Over Texas and Six Flags Hurricane Harbor both received permits to sell mixed beverages, the parks said they plan to sell only beer.

Some of the comments on the Star-Telegram's webpage are pretty hysterical. It doesn't surprise me that Texas conservatives would have a problem with beer in the park, and honestly it's quite pathetic. Do they really think that their kids will be traumatized if they see someone having a beer? Does that really offend them? And are they really going to deprive their kids of Six Flags thrills because of something so trivial? Ugh! This is why I always vote blue. Grow up Texas!

Not quite.

Parents using their children to further their narrow minded agenda can suck it.

But what about all the throwing up on rides and paths that makes Sally cry?

I can't remember a family gathering my entire life where alcohol wasn't consumed. Look at how I turned out. Er, maybe that's a bad example.

Easy, pardner. That's a pretty broad brushstroke for a state this big. The beer vendors at SFFT, SeaWorld, the former site of SFAW, and the Saltgrass restaurant underneath the Boardwalk Bullet would like a word with you about beer sales in Texas amusement parks.

If it doesn't cause your head to explode, ponder the fact that the Jack Daniels distillery in Lynchburg, TN, is in a dry county.

What is this beer you guys are speaking of? We always have Lutheran Kool Aid at our family get togethers. ;)

How is anyone gonna get "all lickered up at the bemusement park" with beer as the strongest option available? Seriously, is it really going to cause that much trouble if Dad has a Lone Star or Shiner with his ribs at lunch? Clearly, there are places in Texas I simply could NOT live, then there are places I could definitely live. Arlington, San Antonio, Austin...clearly there are "cool" areas of Texas - and the food totally rocks! Like Florida, the areas are pretty distinct, so it's easy to tell whether you're in the right places for you. ;) Oh, and....since the words "dry county" came up. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bIKGHbm4-6M

I am a Northeasterner who lives in Texas and most Texans aren't too far off the beaten path. It's the extremes that are a little weirder and the "Texas culture" (which not many people subscribe to anyway) which is crazy.

I hate to dredge up an old topic, but I heard something relevant yesterday. Very quietly and with none of the previous protests, SFOT has updated their permits to allow beer sales at street carts and not require consumption at the purchase location. And it has apparently been pretty successful so far.

Thanks Obama.

Or are we thanking Trump now? I'm confused.

Great. Just reading this small paragraph, I got hammered, got in a fist fight, threw up all over a small child, and passed out in the bushes.

At least you thought about the children.
