Wildwood bar-goers may be able to drink round the clock during tourist season.
The point of keeping bars open 24 hours is to eliminate what bar manager John Davis calls the “bar break.” It’s that time after all the bars close and people pour out into the streets. Extending closing time to 4 would just push back the bar break an hour.
“This would alleviate the mass exodus,” Davis said about keeping the bars open. He suggested 24-hour service just during an extended tourist season -- May to October.
Not everyone supports this proposal.
A public hearing on the ordinance is scheduled for July 28 at 6:30 p.m.
