Getting arrested for drinking in public is lame. You’re just trying to have a good time, and the next thing you know, you’re in handcuffs.
The good news is, that won’t happen in New York City again. Like, ever.
Gizmodo reported that, very quietly, the city just decriminalized public drinking.
This is good news not just for those of us who love getting a little buzz going during picnics in NYC’s parks and while waiting in line for NYC’s free concerts; it’s good news for the city at large.
